This last month has been busy, to say the least. As the 2011 Innovation Roadshow® nears, we have been flooded with preparations.
Our Roadshow committee sat down with the David Michael technical team to taste final concepts for the show. (It’s a hard job, folks – but someone’s got to do it!) While I can’t reveal any of the concepts for this year’s show, I’ll give you a few hints…
We’ve got a couple of hand-held foods to show, and at least one gives a new meaning to sweet & savory. One of our ice cream concepts will literally have you playing with your food. A number of exciting new healthy trends will be on display, and with all of the global flavors, you may feel like you’ve toured the world in two hours. Plus, we’re showing an interesting take on the aphrodisiac trend. And, as always, everything tastes FABULOUS!
Of course, once the review is over, it’s time for each of our concepts to get their close-up. Once again, committee members Denis Blais (senior account manager) and Danielle Durso (marketing coordinator), as well as Kelly DeFusco (senior food technologist, bakery & cereal) took over our board room, along with photographer, Anthony Sinagoga for an intensive photography session, styling for this year’s 26 booths!
Below are some behind-the-scenes shots of the photo shoot – be on the lookout for clues!
Just a small selection of the ingredients needed for this shoot.
