EatTiamo goes to... BlogHer 2019!
8th May, Brooklyn, NY at Berg’n. We had the pleasure of attending the BlogHer Food event where more than four hundred food content creators, influencers and entrepreneurs have gathered to inspire and be inspired. A day dedicated to food-focused panel discussions, interviews, workshops, activations and more related to the digital food world.
A day dedicated to Food Innovation
Founded in 2005, BlogHer started as a movement to inspire women “to find their voices and turn their passions into content, community and commerce”. The BlogHer community includes some of the most talented individuals on the Web, ranging in topics from parenting and social issues to fashion and beauty and it has been so important seeing such a giant network acknowledging the importance of food and all the digital possibilities it may create.
What we loved about it was that BlogHer Pro speakers come from all over the blogsphere, not only food. Professionals in writing, design, business, tech, law, memoirs and more... we were pretty busy around the stand but the atmosphere was so cool! (Plus, we had the opportunity to visit NY again).
We were present with a stand in the courtyard where we had the opportunity to introduce our Italian Food Boxes to the hundreds of attendees. It has been so gratifying to see so many people sincerely interested in Italian products: our job involves calling and writing to so many people but the opportunity to meet food lovers “beyond the screen” are really a few. Talk with them in first person, telling them the stories behind our producers, let them have a taste of our products and receive enthusiastic reactions has been a real reward!
A Taste of Italy in the heart of Brooklyn
Along with our presentation, at our stand it was possible to have a taste of the Balsamic Vinegar GPI from Modena by the Antica Acetaia La Secchia. This top-quality product contains at least the 50% of grape must and is made following a strict regulation concerning both the area of production and the ingredients.
It is produced indeed in a small area around Modena. Sugar and other chemical additives are not allowed: like all the other product that you can find in our Boxes, this Balsamic Vinegar is made according to the oldest tradition and using only the best raw materials.
The Balsamic Vinegar has been really appreciated and to let attendees taste it was a good opportunity to let them see with their own eyes how we work: over the past three years we have built a network of more 100 trusted Artisanal producers, strictly connected to the territory and committed to the use of premium raw materials.
An opportunity to get in touch
with the latest Market Trends
BlogHer has also been an occasion to get in touch with the latest US market trends. During the event, we had the opportunity to see how it is important to offer products that suits a variety of different needs: gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, low-carb, organic…
Since our foundation, we have been engaged in providing our customers only with the best Italian products, coming from organic or highly controlled farming. We also have boxes that satisfy the customers’ demand for healthy food suitable for allergic people and after BlogHer we are already working on some ideas to widen our proposals for people with special dietary needs, so that more and more people can fall in love with Authentic Italian Food!
As a conclusion, we would like to say a big thanks to Phoebe Lapine, one of the speakers, for the time she spent with us and for the nice IG stories she made. Another big thank goes to VivieImpara and Emma: it has been a pleasure to meet you, girls!
