A Conversation with Taylor Smith, Italian American Food Entrepreneur Thursday, June 17 at 5:30 PM ET

Join CCF on Thursday, June 17 for a special presentation by Taylor Smith, daughter of CCF Member Jodi Pulice, and co-founder of Broma - a new product that is disrupting the nut butter industry as we know it!

RSVP TODAY

The story of the Broma brand began in 2018 when Taylor's 96-year old grandmother received the news that she was deficient in protein. After long nights of researching the prognosis, Taylor noticed other failings in nutrients and taste receptors in the elderly population.

Taylor dove headfirst into recipe testing to create a product that would be healthy, flavorful, and versatile. After several iterations, Broma's first recipe, the OG Dark Chocolate Almond Spread, was born. The product received widespread positive feedback from friends and family, enough so that Taylor paired with her childhood friend, Stanley, to bring Broma to kitchens everywhere.

Don't miss the chance to hear all about this young entrepreneur's journey from initial concept to market - and have the chance to ask questions about what tactics helped turn an idea into reality!
