The power of CONNECTIONS.

Since IN Food president and founder Anita Nelson launched Food Connections in 2005, we’ve built connections in every food industry niche you can think of, creating a network of trusted contacts we can quickly leverage to expand our capabilities. With over 75 attending members and nearly 400 connections between LinkedIn and Facebook, we have a robust community of foodies to assist with things like:

Recipe development
Food styling
Nutritional analysis
Promotions/sweepstakes fulfillment

Graphic design
Rebate processing
Qualitative/quantitative research
Culinary consulting


There’s no cost to participate–we ask only for a genuine desire to connect with other professionals serving the food industry. We gather four to six times per year for a breakfast meeting at IN’s office in Minneapolis. At each meeting you’ll have the opportunity to share your business capabilities. We also hold roundtable discussions on relevant trends and topics, and build in plenty of time for networking.

Plus, there’s ALWAYS delicious food. Who do you think we are? Any old marketing and design agency? C’mon, this is IN Food! We’ve got indomitable chef (and visionary Creative Director) Lori Gerdts in our kitchen and more often than not, she contributes to the Food Connections meeting menu.
