The Adriatic Pantry in Singapore
The masterminds behind the great idea of The Adriatic Pantry are Zoran Svetličić from Croatia and his wife Belle Shafer, who both live in Singapore. Through consulting their friends and relatives as well as the Taste of Croatia team, they have hand picked local Croatian gourmet products that they wanted to bring to Singapore. On their few visits to Croatia, they met with the producers, tasted their products, and gotten to know the story. We were happy to join them and, again, be witnesses of how many beautiful products there are out there, made by the excellent people. It takes a great human, besides all the nature has given us, to make a really great experience. We're sure you'll get the Taste of Adriatic through the products they have started distributing.
Here's some quick info on the Epicurean Market presentation by Zoran:
- The fair lasted for three days and was visited by over 20,000 people
- The Adriatic Pantry stand had a very good location and attendance, most goods were sold in the middle of the second day
- We got in touch with three retail chains, and two groups of wholesale restaurants
- We had over 100 pre orders before the fair itself
The reaction of the Singapore audience and restorateurs was above our expectations, especially their impressions with truffles, cheese and kulen sausage. This is all just the beginning!
