November 6, 2020 – Losing faith in the US democratic system? Meet the TasteAtlas popular food map of the USA, where all votes are counted.
Four days into watching American democracy in action, I am as bewildered as the rest of you, but one of the many things that surprised me was the lack of clever marketing initiatives inspired by the current crazy situation.
One notable exception is Croatian-Bulgarian startup TasteAtlas, a global local food map and of the best and most innovative projects I have come across in recent times.
Rather than the model of TripAdvisor and its reputation of fake reviews and restaurants offering often international dishes, TasteAtlas focused on the local goodness all over the world. More than 5,000 local dishes and indigenous products, as well as the best places to try those dishes as recommended by foodie experts.
TasteAtlas has presented local foods in some very enticing maps, such as the cheese map of France, which has 463 types of local cheeses, while the pasta map of Italy was the most popular page on the site initially, helping it reach a global media audience organically.
Looking to learn more about the wonderful nature of Croatian local food? There are currently 290 items to explore and enjoy on the TasteAtlas food map of Croatia.
And, as we await the results of the election vote count, the lawsuits, and the validity of late votes, TasteAtlas shared their food map of the USA, with the current most popular dishes by state, with the message that you can still vote and your vote will be accepted.
Launched in 2018, TasteAtlas has risen quickly in global popularity, featuring in media all over the world, and it was even included as a source on the school curriculum in Ireland by the Ministry of Education. You can learn a lot more about the project in this TCN interview with founder and CEO Matija Babic.
