No matter your menu, incorporating organic could make you stand out from the crowd. And, it's not just for Farmers Markets anymore. Going organic could mean booking more shows and a bigger bottom line. Win-win, ka-ching!
Remember the Chinese Proverb: 'Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime'? This month's Giving Tree recipient is doing just that, only with nutritional, edible plants instead of fish. Wow! Check out this month's Giving Tree recipient at the bottom of today's newsletter!

Organic Food on the Festival Circuit
by Robert Berman for Mobile Catering Business
After many years of experimentation, organic food has finally arrived in the food concession business. Throughout North America more and more events want organic products in their food court.
Why has it taken so long? Many food vendors believe that a food concession is designed to provide greasy and messy products. They have a tendency to model their operations after others around them. And while looking at the success of others can be a valid way to enter a business, it does not leap frog you ahead of them! You become an industry follower rather than an industry leader.
But, there are other reasons why organic foods took so long to make a firm entry into the food concession industry. The manufacturers were slow to make the products available in bulk form. This was primarily due to the fact that most of the organic foods were being processed by small, local companies who were having problems keeping up with the demand of supermarkets and health food stores.

The FestivalNet Giving Tree
Echo Global Farm will receive a part of FestivalNet’s gross profits this month. Our CFO, Connie Morris, put an apple on our Giving Tree for this non-profit because: "This organization has been working around the world for 35 years to eliminate hunger by teaching agricultural techniques and providing seeds to small farmers globally."
From their website: "Our purpose is to help those who are teaching farmers around the world know how to be more effective in producing enough to meet the needs of their families and their communities. They in turn teach others and the ECHO effect continues!"
