Eat In Co.: Food Tech Connect Meetup

Food+Tech Connect is a community for the food tech and innovation sector, whose goal is to transform the food industry. It’s one of our favorite resources for news, research, and tools to help companies like us change the way we eat for the better.

Last week, we had the pleasure of working with Food+Tech Connect as a food partner for their latest NYC meetup. The event featured some of the brightest minds in food logistics, including speakers from FreshDirect, Homer Logistics, OurHarvest, and The Fresh Connection.

Guests at the meetup had a smorgasbord of delicious snacks to choose from, thanks to us and the event’s other food partners — The Meatball Shop, Fields Good Chicken, The Spicy Cookie Company, and Oatbox. Our CEO, Ara Galarza, once again served as our head chef and did an amazing job!

We served pulled chicken sliders, macaroni salad, and slaw, just like a good old-fashioned barbecue. If you’re hungry, scroll down with caution, as the food photos below are sure to work up your appetite!

Lots of delicious food!

We learned a lot about food logistics and met plenty of new people at the meetup. Nothing makes us happier than connecting with and feeding people who love food as much as we do.  Thanks again to Food+Tech Connect for having us!
