Tampa, FL-based At The Table Public Relations is celebrating 30 years of public relations service to clients around the world with a focus on food.
From placing media appearances for chef and TV personality Hugh Acheson for the Georgia Blueberry Commission to gracing the pages of Relish magazine for the Georgia Pecan Commission, At The Table Public Relations' mission incorporates those who produce food, serve food and love food.
"We have enjoyed 30 years of outstanding relationships with fantastic clients in the food industry - from packaged goods and retail outlets to food commodity boards of the finest, freshest food available and renowned chefs with world class appeal," Cheryl Miller, chief executive office and principal of At The Table, said in a press release. "We began to focus solely on the food industry 15 years ago, and it's proven to be a recipe for success."
Since the boutique agency was founded in 1983, At The Table has represented multiple food related clients over the years, including the legendary Bern's Steak House in Tampa, the Chilean Avocado Importer's Association, Ocean Prime Restaurants in multiple markets, the Vidalia Onion Committee, Georgia Pecan Commission, Georgia Peach Council, Georgia Blueberry Commission, Florida Beef Council and Disney Food Blog.
Recognized for their hard work and savvy in the food and beverage industry, the firm's staff is also committed to food-related issues including fighting hunger, the farm-to-table movement and the culinary industry in general.
At The Table is a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association, the Agricultural Institute of Florida, and Georgia Fruit & Vegetable Growers Association.
At The Table Public Relations also supports and has committed hundreds of pro bono hours to the non-profit hunger organization, Feeding America Tampa Bay.
At The Table's current roster of clients includes Sweetbay Supermarket, a Florida grocery store and part of Delhaize America; Lee Roy Selmon's Restaurant, with eight locations in Florida; Georgia Pecan Commission; Georgia Peach Council; Georgia Blueberry Commission; and the Florida Beef Council.
"At The Table has the best resources, contacts and industry knowledge around," Georgia Blueberry Commission Chairman Joe Cornelius added in the press release. "They are able to provide us with outstanding public relations and marketing, while still maintaining a close working relationship. No matter what we may need, At The Table Public Relations is always there for us."
"After more than 15 years of working with the people from At The Table Public Relations, their hard work, attention to detail and results have created a long-lasting partnership that has benefited our commission in many ways," Georgia Pecan Commission Chairman Duke Lane Jr. added in the press release.
Industry publication O'Dwyers ranked At the Table number 125 in its annual list of PR firms, and in 2011 Tampa Bay Business Journal named the agency one of Tampa Bay's top public relations firms.
Current and recent campaigns include "Georgia in July," a retail and consumer campaign on behalf of the Georgia Peach Council, which includes television cooking demonstrations and a series of YouTube videos; an awareness and education campaign to highlight Florida's cattle industry through the development of Florida Beef Month; and a social media recipe contest to promote the Georgia Blueberry Commission.
