Even though our team’s extremely busy with the Foodtree platform, we’re always conscious of the great things people and brands are doing for the food community around the world. A few weeks back we got involved with an ongoing contest from Soyaworld’s So Nice, an organic soy beverage found all over Canada and in many US states, so we wanted to make sure our blog readers knew about it and had the opportunity to enter and vote!
The “Better Organic World” contest is open and taking your submissions for ideas! Head to So Nice’s Facebook page and submit ideas on how you’d spend $5,000 towards a better organic world. It’s that simple. After that you can share your ideas on Facebook or Twitter to have friends and family vote for you.
At the end of the contest period, a handful of top entries will be assessed by a rockstar panel of judges which includes Lindsay Coulter, Elise Desaulniers, Raul Pacheco, Kate Trgovac, Celine MacKay, Valerie Lugonja.
Also of note:
On November 15 and December 15, the entries with the most votes have a chance to win one of the $100 vouchers. In addition, the top 10 most voted ideas, together with the top 10 picks of the Contest Sponsor, will be part of the shortlist for the independent judges to evaluate for the Grand Prize.

Head on over to So Nice’s Facebook page to check it all out!
Thank you everyone who came out last night to the Ridge Theater in Vancouver for the screening of FRESH. The food, wine, and conversation was wonderful and we had a great time meeting everyone. We hope you enjoyed the movie!
As Anthony said before the film, we’ve put together some ‘foodtrees’, as we call them, related to the food producers who participated last night. Foodtrees are like family trees…they represent the path our food has taken on its way to our plate, and the link together food sources that are related to one another.
The main link can be found at the link mentioned last night: fresh.foodtree.com. That takes you to our Treehouse Community Profile…a place we put together special events foodtrees.
NOTE: Our platform is community driven…if you know where you can find some of these foods you are welcome to contribute by signing in and adding food sources!
Check out each vendor’s foodtree:
J-B’s Candy Shoppe
Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company
If you know of other places to find these foods, we’d encourage you to sign in and contribute!
Tonight is one of Vancouver's most unique gatherings, taking place at the Rowing Club in Stanley Park. The event, called Interesting Vancouver, brings together a handful of speakers from extremely varied walks of life to present new and thought provoking ideas to a crowd of about a hundred.
