My name is Titta Uoti-Vaisanen and I am an ex yacht chef. When I came ashore, I founded TUVYC, a market entry consultancy company that helps companies from outside of yachting enter our wonderful superyacht industry.
One of our initiatives is the Superyacht Foodie marketing platform.
Superyacht Foodie sources rare, sustainable and innovative food and drinks directly from producers worldwide and provides a matchmaking service that connects superyacht chefs, chief stews and provisioning companies with the producers of the exquisitely unique, next-generation food and drinks we represent.
We are thrilled to be providing the Superyacht Foodie Tasting Bar this year.
We will be sharing delicious Oath Gin from the gorgeous Formula 1 driver Valtteri Bottas, seriously smooth After Rum made with aloe vera and honey, and the delightful Punchy soft drinks for adults and Setz hard seltzers, which also happen to make fantastic mixers and cleanse the palette, the worlds purest water INLAND ICE straight from Greenlands untouched glaciers.
The next event for our food products will be the fabulous YACHTNEEDS crew event at Port Vauban on the 21st of April. After that, we will launch the Superyacht Foodie Experience, a complete sensory Michelin Star pop-up restaurant experience organised onboard superyachts worldwide.
As a marketing platform, we do not sell the fine foods and drinks directly; we source the best ingredients, make sure they taste as good as they sound and then connect the yacht chefs, chief stewardesses and provisioning agents with the producers.
The chefs need to ask their usual provisioning agents for the products, and they will be readily available via our logistics centre in Antibes.
Superyacht Foodie represents exquisitely unique, sustainable food and drinks, many vegan or gluten-free. We look for true innovation when sourcing new products and make sure we are always up to date with the latest trends onboard.
We have a great network of superyacht chefs, provisioners and crew who we talk with regularly and who help us understand their work’s bottlenecks. As a result, we’ve recently sourced some new versatile vegan proteins, allergy-restrictive and gluten-free products and some great quick bites for people on the go.
The luxury, low-sugar soft drinks are proving very popular, as well as the low-fat reindeer meats, rare biodynamic honey from Finland, and exclusive spirits and alcohol complimentary wines.
Our logistics centre in Antibes also means the operational side of orders is easy and creates one less headache for those onboard.
