We had the honor of attending the Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE) in “hotlanta” Georgia this past weekend. What an AMAZING experience. The FNCE staff and people of Atlanta were incredibly welcoming, and the attendees gave us huge props for our snacks.
We met thousands of dietitians and nutritionists who told us they were so excited to finally have a snack that’s portion controlled and made from real food. Hearing the feedback firsthand from some of the nation’s harshest critics was truly uplifting.
“OMG Mr. Popular is so addictive!”
“These snack names are SO fun!”
“This is exactly what I need for my clients”
Seeing our founder, Joy Bauer, in action amongst “her people” – i.e. fellow nutritionists – was magical. I watched in awe as nutrition students confessed she was their inspiration for pursuing a career in nutrition.
Several Atlanta natives thanked Joy for her health tips on the TODAY Show, insisting she helped them lose countless pounds and proudly presenting the evidence in their now loose-fitting waistbands.
We boarded our plane back to NYC filled with gratitude, pride, and excitement for where we are and where we’re headed as a food company, as a team, that can help change the way people eat. We’re feeling the full meaning of our slogan “eat happy” after such a fun weekend!
