2019 Holidays List for Food Marketing
A Social Media Planning Resource
Ever heard of National Cheese Lover's Day, Coffee Day or Beef Tallow Day? What about Weed Day or Farmer's Day? There are a lot of these so called food holidays or marketing holidays - some are silly, but some are serious. Serious in that some of them can help drive awareness and sales.
We see retailers, media and consumer-influencers, like food bloggers, leveraging these holidays on social media, like Instagram, and retailers even using them for in-store promotions. Some holidays, like National Cookie Day (December 4) are made into big promotions at grocery retailers like Whole Foods Market. See an earlier post we wrote on retailers taking a bite out of Cookie Day here.
Use this list to plan your social communications for 2019.
Here's exactly what our guide contains:
A month by month (January - December 2019) list of holidays that lend themselves well to marketing food and beverage products to consumers.
420 holidays are listed.
Types of holidays include - food marketing holidays, weeks and awareness months, health-related holidays, some national holidays (as those are often good excuses to celebrate the food culture of other countries,) and traditional holidays.

Hungry for more social comms intel?
In addition to creating valuable resources for social media planning, like this annual holidays list, we also work with brands in the natural products industry to create their entire social media program.
Read on here to learn about our Social Strategy service, which is basically creating a social communications playbook + teaching your team/social lead/consultant how to implement it.
We also manage social comms programs ourselves, for a select group of brands on annual retainers that fit nicely within our category expertise and passion points.
