New Online Community Launches September 6

The newest online community for food enthusiasts announces its September 6 website launch. Foodiacs is tailored to people who are passionate about food and will connect them with product offerings that are exclusive to the site. Each Foodiacs offering will be available for only a limited time, and at a limited quantity, and will not match any offer at any other online retail outlet.

“We recognize the quality and passion that goes into creating these artisan foods and want to bring lesser known but high quality items to the forefront of the food community in a unique way,” said Katie Clegg, chief eating officer of “Foodiacs is about helping companies get recognition for innovation and outstanding ingenuity – but more importantly it’s about connecting consumers, who are Foodiacs like us, to gourmet food artisans, epicurean products, specialty kitchen equipment and, ultimately, new experiences they’ll love.”

Foodiacs has exclusive product offerings, or events, booked through March 2012. The events will launch every one to two weeks on Tuesdays at 12 p.m. and will feature a variety of unique food-related products. Starting in 2012, the site will also connect “Foodiacs” with local food industry leaders for exclusive tastings, culinary tours and educational experiences.

The first event to be featured is Back to the Roots, a grow-it-yourself box garden of pearl oyster mushrooms. The event will run from September 6 at 12:00 p.m. ET - September 20 at 11:59 a.m. ET. Each “Foodiac” that purchases two boxes will receive a third box and classroom curriculum to be donated to the school of their choice.

The site is currently in beta form until September 6. Interested food enthusiasts can sign-up to receive news, events and product offerings via email.

About Foodiacs is an online gathering place for the passionate eaters of the world. It connects community members with exclusive products and services, including artisan treats, high-quality kitchen tools and cookware, and elite culinary tours and classes. Starting in 2012, will also share local food-related events in regional areas, such as a special tasting event offered by a local craftworks chocolate company or a preview dinner at a new restaurant. Each Foodiac offering will be unique to the site and only available for a limited time. For more information visit: or follow Foodiacs on Facebook and Twitter.
