The Business of Heritage Foods: Crafting Your Food Story for the Media


  • -

Writers, journalists, and creators will be sharing tips and best practices on getting your food story told by the media. We will be joined by Felipe Garcia, president and CEO of Visit Tucson, Shane Reiser, Head Foodie at Tucson Foodie and Cathalena Burch, senior reporter at the Arizona Daily Star. Panelists will share what makes a great food story, why media are interested in your story and how the media can help amplify you and your business.

Sponsored by the University of Arizona FORGE, the Tucson City of Gastronomy presents this series once a month on the business of heritage foods. Drawing on a community-wide network of resources, TCoG-certified speakers and local entrepreneurs provide information on leveraging Tucson's global designation as part of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network to grow food-based businesses in Southern Arizona.
