  2. I’m curious to know how the blog is going in terms of a dialogue.
    I’m working on a freelance project looking at Social Media in the food ingredient B2B industry and your insights would be very valuable.
    What I have found is that this industry is regarded as old school and still a little behind on social media, still relying mostly on traditional ways.
    Thanks.
    Israel.
