TURN OUT ON NOVEMBER 6 FOR FaB'S SIXTH ANNUAL MEETING!

This year, we'll celebrate our accomplishments by offering a new perspective of food and beverage from Wisconsin - one based on a reputation that Wisconsin feeds and quenches the world.

To keynote our annual celebration, we've secured Arthur Ircink, creator and executive producer of "Wisconsin Foodie," a two-time Emmy award-winning PBS series. Arthur is also the editor and owner of Edible Milwaukee and owner of Radio Tower Productions, which has been filming us since 2012.

Arthur sees the world of food and beverage from a different angle. Whether it's through a camera lens or in his storytelling, he ties it all back to Wisconsin. In 2018, Arthur received a FaBfive award for putting our industry on the worldwide map in a whole new way...which is coincidentally what FaB aims to accomplish.

ARTHUR IRCINK
Creator and Executive Producer of "Wisconsin Foodie"

Arthur Ircink is the man behind the scenes at "Wisconsin Foodie." From shooting and editing to underwriting and social media, Arthur is responsible for what you see on TV and online. With a bit of naivety, hard work, passion, and an entrepreneurial spirit, the concept for "Wisconsin Foodie" was inked on a bar napkin in late 2007. The hope was to capture the enthusiasm of national food shows and create a show that was all about the rich “local” food stories from Wisconsin. By promoting local TV and local food, "Wisconsin Foodie" connects its viewers with the amazing food stories from their own backyards, hoping to encourage not only eating more local and fresh foods but also supporting a local economy.

Arthur has been working on his craft as a filmmaker and entrepreneur for over ten years and has a constant drive to better himself and his art. He also produced and edited the feature documentary “The Super Noble Brothers” which screened at many film festivals around the country. He is also currently working on two feature documentaries: one about the American Cheese movement and another about the Olympic dreams of boxer Israel “Shorty” Acosta.
