Mornington Peninsula Provenance Mark
From the fertile fields of the Mornington Peninsulato the tables of chef-hatted restaurants and the shelves of supermarkets and grocers across Australia, the Mornington Peninsula has a reputation as one of Australia’s premiere food producing regions.
The Mornington Peninsula is a world-renowned wine region, with a gentle maritime climate and favourable soils allowing local winemakers to create a diverse range of terroir-driven wines with an internationally developed reputation for Australia’s best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This reputation makes wine and food two of the most popular attractions to visitors all year round.
Beyond wine, a fast-growing and nationally acclaimed beer, cider and spirits sector is finding its home on the Peninsula.
Complementing the region’s cellar doors is a plethora of opportunities for locals and visitors alike to experience the regions produce. Attractions like the oldest pick-your-own cherry orchard in Victoria.
If you are looking for Peninsula grown produce, it can be identified by the Mornington Peninsula Produce (MPP) food provenance brand.
The certified trade mark, developed by the Mornington Peninsula Shire and the Food Industry Advisory Body (FIAB), gives consumers confidence in the provenance of fresh produce when purchasing from farm gates, farmers’ markets and retail outlets.
The aim of the trade mark is to strengthen the identity of the Mornington Peninsula as a quality, fresh and innovative food economy, and it provides consumers with a guarantee of authentic provenance from the Mornington Peninsula with the legal backing of the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC).
The Mornington Peninsula Produce website provides a searchable directory of registered producers, their produce and seasonal availability.
