Fine Food Digest: FREE Product launch
If you’re launching a new product or changing your packaging during the next year, you can take advantage of FREE editorial coverage in Fine Food Digest, our industry-leading trade magazine.
Guild members can benefit at least once a year from FREE inclusion in Fine Food Digest’s popular Shelf Talk section, provided they have a brand new line to announce.
Producer members featured in Shelf Talk are highlighted with a Guild logo so retail members can seek out products from them.
Fine Food Digest’s journalists always look to Guild members first for news and views on industry issues.
And by keeping an eye on Fine Food Digest’s annual features list, you could feature in our editorial team’s regular sector-by-sector product round-ups too.
