There must be something in the air this spring, because we’ve been writing a lot about food-related startups recently. In fact, I just published FoodCircles this morning and Bite to Meet yesterday, and more will be coming later this week.
Trisse is a brand new startup, still in beta, that curates exclusive offers for artisan foods. Their goal is to give users access to hard-to-find, artisan food items from small family farms and businesses at 25 – 75% off retail price. When the site launches on May 16, you’ll have access to the nation’s best undiscovered foods, from organically grown blackberry jam to hand-made chocolate bars. Here’s more on their inspiration from their blog:
While attending farmers’ markets in the San Francisco Bay Area, we found many merchants that had great food products to buy in person, but they had little or no online presence. If you didn’t already know about them, you weren’t going to find them! Our goal is to connect food lovers across the country with these delicious artisan foods, while simultaneously helping small farms and upcoming businesses gain exposure for their products.
Foodies will love them for exclusive access to cool new products. Small, independent merchants will love them for access to enthusiastic customers, who are incentivized to share their experiences via their social networks.
If this website sounds right up your alley, follow this special link for Tech Cocktail readers; the first 10 people that sign up will be guaranteed beta access.
