GEOFood

Geoparks, People
Nature and Food.

Introduction

Since food heritage is the one of the common traits that is shared amongst the different cultures of the world, GEOfood was created in hopes of finding the connections between local food and it’s significance in their respective geological heritage. Which will in turn enhance sustainable development projects in UNESCO Global Geoparks, by increasing the public’s awareness of geological heritage and its impact on peoples’ lives.

Products that carry the brand GEOfood have a responsibility to make consumers aware of the crucial role that local food production plays in maintaining geodiversity.

The mission of the GEOfood project is to utilise the scientific approach to establish the connection between geoheritage, geodiversity, ecosystem services, food production and sustainable development, in 26 areas around the world.

These results will then be analysed and circulated in the scientific community as well as the UNESCO Global Geoparks international networks.

LWI Blue’s foundations lay on friendships formed over 30 years ago. Simon Wang, Jeffrey Tan, and SK Tan met at secondary school in Triang, Pahang and have remained close friends during their varied careers. When Simon, his father Datuk Wang, and renowned geologist Zainol Bin Husin discovered reserves of potable natural mineral water below the ancient Langkawi rainforests at the base of Gunung Raya they created the company MC Gemilang and set about harnessing this gift of Langkawi to share with Langkawi’s residents and visitors.
