Antony Suvalko has combined unlikely passions for cooking, technology and non-traditional media to become one of a new breed of dynamic food marketers. His is a unique approach, best summed up by a belief that “business needs to relax, lighten up and embrace new ways of communicating.”
A Whangarei boy, Antonys’ background is a diverse one. He has over 15 years hands-on business experience, including the running of his own successful catering company, Crave Cuisine, which serviced high-end corporate clients. Between cooking gigs Antony studied accountancy and economics and worked as the Business Development Manager for illycaffe. His time with illycaffe gave him valuable exposure to the international market and the opportunity to make considerable contributions to their brand expansion in the Pacific region.
More recently, Antony has been busy launching his brainchild www.foodie.co.nz. Inspired by the exciting possibilities of social networking, www.foodie.co.nz is poised to become the interactive go-to site for New Zealand food enthusiasts, food businesses and food professionals wanting up-to-the-moment information, recipes, news and discussion about all things culinary. “My goal for foodie.co.nz is for it to become an online food community where producers, business owners of all sizes plus lovers of food all have a platform to communicate”.
Antony is never one to stay idle and now brings the same outside-the-box thinking to www.rubyslist.co.nz. A fully interactive e-commerce site www.rubyslist.co.nz is where consumers can buy genuine export-quality & ethically produced meat, in short “know the producers” access recipes, blogs, enter competitions and contribute their own content and feedback.
Antony lives in Auckland with his fab family, a cool but very stupid dog, and a stupid but extremely uncool cat.
