After months of planning, Purium Summit 2019 has come and gone. We loved meeting each and every one of you. From announcing our new line of nutritional products (Epi-Genius Dogs and Epi-Genius Kids) to releasing our plan to go plastic-free in 2021, Summit 2019 was a weekend to remember.
But you didn’t come here for a recap…(Brand Partners – you can access that in Purium’s new iLearn center – log in through Back Office)!
…you came here for the exquisite, next-level Purium recipes that the Marriott Chef Chris Shertzer created for our annual gala dinner. Ever since we released teaser images in June, our inboxes have been flooded with recipe requests for these superfood dishes. Well, the wait is over….almost.
First, we want to thank Chef Chris and his team for truly making this year’s dinner most special. In May, we sent them a box of Purium products and gave them a few of our standard Purium recipes, with a note that said “Just have fun with it!”
One month later, Purium’s President Amy Venner and her team were blown away when they were invited to taste the culinary creations. Not only were they creative and nutritious, by they were the most DELICIOUS Purium dishes they had ever tasted.
Thank you, Chef Chris and team for working so hard and sharing your talent with us. You truly helped us honor Purium’s mission and passion for pure + premium nutrition in a brand new way and we are so grateful!
Okay, you’ve waited long enough.Are you ready?
