#EatLocal is an initiative by IOL aimed at supporting local culinary businesses by providing them a platform to market their eateries and services.

Many chefs, cooks and business owners have been forced to pivot their culinary endeavours as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Maybe the pandemic has forced you to rethink your options, and maybe you’ve taken the opportunity the pandemic has offered to launch your own business. Either way, we want to help you.

You might know how to make delicious meals, but may not know how to market your business. This is where #EatLocal comes in. Register your business with us – it’s FREE! – and we’ll take care of the rest. We will use our mass mainstream media marketing muscle to get the word out about your business, offering hungry individuals across the country the opportunity to try your wares.

We do this by activating our content marketing teams to write reviews and stories about what you do and how you got to doing it, what motivates you and why your food deserves to be enjoyed by as many people as you can cook for.

Covid-19 has not been kind to the economy, and we want to help kickstart it by offering business owners a platform to get people buying and eating from them.

If you’re just interested in trying new things, or supporting a small business in your neighbourhood or community, have a look through our listings and order your next meal from one of the eateries on our website.

You putting food on your table will help them put food on theirs.

Support local restaurants by using #EatLocal, and encourage small food businesses you know about to list with us.

Again, it’s absolutely free.

Help us help small and medium businesses in the food industry.
