We are a volunteer organisation run by the people who produce the food.
We are the farmers, the value-adders, the chefs, the businesses that care passionately about bringing to you the abundant, unique and delicious produce from the north tropical region of Australia.
The Taste Paradise logo, a plate filled with tropical bounty, easily identifies produce and value-added goods from the region to locals and tourists to connect you with a genuine Tropical North Queensland food experience.
You will discover truly unique foods: wild tropical seafood from the Coral Sea and Gulf of Carpentaria, as well as farmed barramundi, redclaw and prawns, rich dairy products from the tropical table ands, grass-fed beef and free-range pork and poultry, macadamia nuts, coffee and tea, spices, chocolate, native rainforest fruits, seasonal vegetables including tropical Asian vegetables, fresh salad staples and herbs, and exotic tropical fruits.
Look for the logo! It’s our local food brand.
Find all the foody things that we love, and that we know you will love too. Today there is an exciting suite of exotic culinary tastes, just waiting for you to experience, right here.
Taste Paradise members regularly participate in regional events promoting their products.
