When I saw that the Hungry Globetrotter was created in 2010, I wondered where have I been all this time. I discovered the concept through a guest post of the founder, Vijay Rajendran, hosted by Monica Bhide. A couple of months after I have my own interview with Vijay and I am very thankful for this opportunity!

When food and customs meet!
– What does Hungry Globetrotter mean?
The company name is derived from my many years of traveling and exploring the world’s cultures, in which food and the customs surrounding it play a major role. We strive to offer subscribers the opportunity to experience these countries via their taste buds, if they cannot board a plane and visit for themselves.
– Who was your first customer?
After friends and family, our first customers were folks who stumbled upon us online while searching for a better way to experience delicious foods from around the world.
Southeast Asian food is on sought
– What are the most wanted products right now?
We see a lot of excitement for Southeast Asian food, this requires many sauces and spices and requires a balance of salt and sweet and spicy.
– How it is possible to order?
Our monthly World Dinner Club subscription plan offers members one box representing a different destination each month. The boxes are meant to serve 4 people and include ingredients, detailed instructions, photos and background on the food and locale. People can visit our website to join very easily.
– What is the minimal amount requested?
People can also request individual boxes if they do not want to join the monthly club.
– Are there any geographical restrictions?
No. We strive to offer an extremely diverse selection of cuisine and destinations highlighted.
– Do the program operate together with other systems, such as Miles and More, Dinner Club etc.?
Not at this time.
A big network of partnerships
– What partnerships do you want to conclude for the next 12 months?
We work with a variety of partners, a collection of which is always expanding. Here are a couple of partners that we’ve highlighted recently: http://www.hungryglobetrotter.com/blogs/hungry-globetrotter/7327422-azalina-s-malaysian-products, http://www.hungryglobetrotter.com/blogs/hungry-globetrotter/7530368-featured-flavor-partner-sabrosa-salts
– Do you plan to have any kosher and vegan products in the future?
We aren’t actively designing a kosher or vegan or gluten free subscription box, but many products on our web store can be enjoyed by people with very specific dietary regimens.
