Using cultural globalisation as a lens, this article examines the tensions between global and local in food tourism to support urban destinations in realising their sustainability outcomes. This is achieved through investigating the supplier perspective by drawing data from a case study of the cities of York and Sheffield, England. The findings shed light on how food supply side representatives perceive these cultural globalisation tensions by revealing the intrinsic socio-cultural values of tourism promotion and observing how culture and globalisation can work mutually to support sustainable destination development. This study concludes that cultural globalisation sensitises us to the dialectic tension between homogenisation and heterogenisation, which can serve as an impetus for developing sustainable food tourism.
