There’s always been a lot of foodiness going on here at TechnoMedia and a lot of foodie talent, the sum of which is pretty extraordinary.
Besides the fact that we know design and marketing communications, each of us with more than 25 years experience doing our thing, we know food. Our two owners are the real deal. Roberta MacLean grew up on a working farm in Belfast, PEI. Roberta knows farming first hand. Blair grew up in a large family that made its living in the fishing industry in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and his insight is incredible. Donna grew up on a mini farm and is married to Chef Irwin MacKinnon. Heather is a professional food photographer and a contributing photographer to StockFood the world largest food stock agency located in Europe. And there is always food going on in the office. Always!
We have a long list of food-related clients. You can’t really know and understand them from an office chair. So we are in the fields with our farmers, on the boats with our fishers, in the processing plants, in development kitchens, the markets, the restaurants, and at home in the kitchen. Food has a journey involving many hard-working and super talented people and we want to tell the whole story.
So we started PEI Foodies. A community of foodies sharing Prince Edward Island’s foodiness.
Because it’s something we can all be proud of and should be sharing together. So we go out and talk to people, find out what they are up to, take photos, promote them on the blog and share it on social media.
Why are we doing this? Because we think PEI is the best, and food is meant to be shared.
It’s a fun way to meet new foodies and build the community.
