BRANDS and BLOGGERS Foodies on the Front Line!

Toronto News, (PR) May 05, 2012

On one flank of the front line its a battle to reach moms. Packaged goods brands are constantly looking for ways to reach out, engage and connect with this powerful group of consumers. Moms ages 25-54 have a big impact on sales of groceries and are using social media frequently. In fact, households with children under 18 are responsible for half of all purchases of cereal, juice, fresh meat and prepared foods according to a recent study.

On the other flank are food bloggers. Food bloggers have quickly become a formidable way to reach out and engage the powerful mom group. They blog because they love food, expressing themselves through recipes, photography and writing. They are often part of this group themselves, so peer-to-peer, their opinions are trusted and valued. Most make no money from their blogs and in fact consider themselves food journalists with impartial opinions unencumbered by the paid support of branded products.

Thats where Eat In Eat Out (EIEO) comes in. This unique online magazine offers a safe, happy place where both sides can join together. It offers consumers a truly unique home to find feature stories, sponsored by leading packaged goods brands, alongside articles featuring some of the leading food bloggers in Canada.
