Links Unlimited Brings Anova Culinary Sous Vide to Corporate Market

Links Unlimited, a corporate channel partner and fulfillment organization for many of the best brands in retail, brings Anova Culinary, a leader in the sous vide cooking category,  to the corporate market. Sous vide is a technique rapidly growing in popularity that involves cooking vacuum-sealed food in a bag submerged in water to achieve a level of flavor almost impossible to achieve through other methods. 
 
“Anova is excited to introduce sous vide to new communities in partnering with Links Unlimited. We're very happy to have them join the #anovafoodnerd family”, says Lindsey Brink, Retail Account Manager at Anova Culinary.
 
According to Rich Guerra, Vice President of Business Development for Links, “We are excited to introduce Anova Culinary into the corporate channel. With many people staying home and doing more cooking, Anova Culinary will be a great addition to our brand portfolio and to any kitchen!”
 
Founded in 2013, Anova helped transform the kitchen appliance market with the launch of the first commercially available and affordable sous vide immersion circulator. Today, with more than 60 million cooks and its family of Anova Precision® products, Anova is the world’s leading provider of smart kitchen appliances. Headquartered in San Francisco, Anova is changing the way people cook through its hardware devices and software platform, enabling professional chefs and home cooks to easily create perfectly cooked meals every day.
