I know I haven’t updated you in awhile, but so much has been going on I barely have time to check facebook (whoa, I know).
Last week we hosted a sustainability conference where people from Europe and all over the U.S. came in to discuss sustainable agricultural practices and how Nestle can make a connection between consumers and the raw materials to make them feel more a part of sustainability.
You might know the Haagen-Dazs campaign, Haagen-Dazs loves honey bees. Hopefully, you’ll be seeing some “Gerber Grows Greatness” (I just made that up, side effect of being a marketing major) campaigns.
A major highlight of the conference for all you ladies out there was the visit to a bean field. Farmer Paul wasn’t able to give us a tour, so his son, Farmer Dan, showed us around. How is it that I go to school with over 25,000 guys and I end up in the middle of no-where Michigan and fall in love!? Unfortunately he’s engaged, but I’m really starting to see the perks of getting in touch with suppliers.
Now, for some trivia. I went to the IFT, Institute of Food Technologists, Expo in Chicago two weeks ago, and if you go to Cosco for the samples, you better consider buying a ticket for this thing next year. Guess how many samples I ate! I’ll list everything I tried in my next post.
