Looking Back at 2012by The Vanilla Guru on 01/09/13
We're very thankful for the growth of Mannix Vanilla over the past year. Looking back and reflecting helps us set goals for the future. So thanks for your loyalty in 2012! Here are some of this past year's highlights:
Introduction of Vanilla Infused Florida Organic Cane Sugar--This is becoming a local favorite! We're hoping it's our commitment to sell for less with a better product--double the amount of ground vanilla compared to the high end stores around the corner from the Farmer's Market.
Introduction of Vanilla Infused Olive Oil--Friends and fans have found out there's nothing sweet about using this to sauté or grill your shrimp (we LOVE Wild Ocean's--local, of course!), fresh fruit or vegetables (try plantains, or brush on asparagus) and of course, as a dipping oil for fresh bread. You could always join the good company of Emeril Lagasse. He serves vanilla infused olive oil salad dressing at his restaurants!
Finally, the professional labeling with barcodes--this has allowed us to get into local stores (currently in The Meat House and Cavallari Gourmet Market) and hopefully, will open doors as we accomplish our 2013 goal of getting on the shelves at quality grocers, such as Whole Foods and Fresh Market.
Happy New Year! The very best to you and yours!
