The Nourished Group Story
The Nourished Group Story
A Note From Jen Cafferty, Founder & CEO
2020 Update: As Covid-19 has struck the nation in a myriad of ways, The Nourished Group has had to be creative in our offerings. We have added a virtual Nourished Festival while our festivals are either being postponed or canceled across the US. We have also expanded Find Me Gluten Free to include a robust product listing area and will be adding recipes and videos in the near future. As always, our goal is to make gluten-free life easier for both consumers and brands.
In 2007 I had an epiphany: gluten-free living isn’t so easy! I’ve always felt that the word “diet” was not adequate for my family’s lifestyle. To me, gluten-free living is a true “lifestyle” and not a diet. It involves your home life, travel, school, and social outings. Over the years, my family’s gluten-free life has become very normal for us, but in 2007 it wasn’t so easy. At that time, I was a good cook and fortunately could afford to purchase the very few gluten-free items that were available. However, many of the products did not taste good and were hard to find. Plus, as I said, I could cook well. I started to think about the folks that were diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten intolerance and didn’t know how to cook? This led me to start the Gluten-Free Cooking Expos. These were two days of cooking classes with a small group of brands showcasing their products.
Throughout the years the show has evolved. An increasing number of brands came into the marketplace and we slowly shifted our model to evolve with the industry. Instead of cooking classes, we began to offer large vendor fairs that included classes. We slowly added more cities to our agenda and 13 years later we visit 8 cities across the US. The shows are now called Nourished Festivals and are still ALL gluten-free, but also focus on other allergens. We even have nut-free, paleo, keto, and plant-based sections for those interested in these specialty diet lifestyles.
2013 was a very exciting year! I partnered with Jason Elmore, Founder of Find Me Gluten Free. After graduating from college, Jason created the app and website because he couldn’t find safe places to dine as a celiac. Jason is our CTO and is still the “cool tech guy” on the team. His creation, Find Me Gluten Free, has changed the face of the gluten-free living in the US, helping over 3 million people annually find safe places to eat locally and while traveling.
2019 brought a big change to our company. We rebranded from The Gluten Free Media Group to the Nourished Group. Our brightly colored logo reflects our dynamic team and the exciting growth of the industry. Every year we are honored to help over 500 brands reach hundreds of thousands of loyal gluten-free and specialty diet customers. Whether we are helping brands sample their products at the Nourished Festivals or helping them reach 250,000+ email subscribers, we pride ourselves on the best customer service and high level of expertise.
I look forward to continuing to watch our industry grow in the future. I am humbled to lead our team and work with such exciting partner brands. As a breast cancer survivor and mother, I truly believe that each day is a gift and I love being able to share my “workday” with all of you.
