Are you a fan of food, travel, lifestyle blogs? Has FBC encouraged you to follow bloggers? If so, who/what type of bloggers do you follow closely or hope to connect and perhaps work with? How can bloggers and brands work better together?Do you work with any bloggers currently or plan to? What do you look for in a blogger when searching to work with bloggers? 

We’re really keen to work with bloggers in the health food and free from landscapes, as Barleycup is caffeine and gluten free and doesn’t have any added sugars. We strongly believe in the benefits of working with bloggers, and recognise that they make up some of the most in powerful influencers today. We are always looking to work with new writers, and are interested in discussing the many and varied opportunities with different UK blogs.

How has social media helped you connect and engage more with a wider audience and particularly bloggers?

We recently launched Barleycup on Twitter, as we believe it is the best way to reach our target audience. We are also using it as a tool to connect with bloggers who talk about topics relevant to our brand, and engage in conversations with them.

What positive effect are food, travel, or lifestyle bloggers having on the industry? What do you value in a blog? What food blogging trends are you enjoying at the minute? Are food trends for following religiously, setting yourself or ignoring all together? 

Bloggers are continuing to change and shape the food and health industries, and their opinions and reviews are key to encouraging interest in the brand. It is really important to us that bloggers offer honest and fair reviews, in their own personal style, staying true to their own USP. The rise of the health blogger is certainly encouraging more people to seek a healthier lifestyle and the huge increase in ‘free from’ bloggers is really helping to spread awareness of food intolerances, and to help those who struggle with them.

If you could tell people to eat one thing more often what would it be and why? If your brand has recipes – share with the readers your signature dish – If you want us to feature your favourite recipe from your own blog, include the link here and tell them why it’s important!Got a quick note you want to share? You can also share engaging and quirky tips, facts or ideas with the blogging community!

We would simply encourage people to eat a healthy, balanced diet, and make sure to drink plenty of water. It is also known that consuming too much caffeine, whether it be through tea, coffee or caffeinated drinks, can be bad for your health. We would therefore suggest that people should try to switch to caffeine free drinks such as Barleycup, to help them stay within the recommended daily limit for caffeine which is 400mg. It is about striking a balance in your everyday life and making healthy decisions.
