The 33 festivals, large and small, feature a wide range of products and producers- among them many of the Wales the True Taste Food and Drink Awards winners.
Alun Davies, Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Food and Fisheries said:
“Food festivals play an important role in attracting visitors and providing a showcase for producers.
“The Welsh Government is committed to continuing to support the Welsh food industry and strengthening its culture. Welsh food and drink remains one of our popular tourist attractions, and also plays a vital part in the Welsh economy.
“ I am delighted that once again we are able to help a number of these events.”
During 2012 the festivals will collectively receive £339,280 in assistance, marking Wales’ reputation as a producer of high quality and diverse food and drink.
