"Our aim is simple – to help market and promote companies in the farming, food and drinks industries.
If this is you, we’d love to get together with you to see how we can work together to tell your story".
Steve Reckless - Founder and Managing Director of Tasty Media
Steve started his career in television making programmes for the BBC and Channel 5, including travelling the world working with Keith Floyd on some of his iconic cookery and travel series.
Working, not only with Keith, but also with many top chefs around the world, sparked a passion for quality produce and great food and drink.
After shifting focus into the commercial and corporate sector he, and the company started working with the NFU, Red Tractor and many farming, food and drinks related companies, which further grew that interest.
“I think we have a huge amount to be proud of in the UK - the quality of the food we produce, the standards of our processing and the diversity of our cooking and chefs. What I love about working in these sectors is the passion we find in everybody we meet. From the farmers and growers, the producers and processors to the people who prepare and cook our food. There seems to be something about the food industries that inspires all those involved. Much of our job is simply to capture the essence of our clients’ passion on film and tell their story to a wider audience.”
And so Tasty Media was born...
