From sustainability and automation to robotics, blockchain and Internet of Things (IoT), Food Logistics’ 2020 editorial calendar is chockful of hot-button issues in the supply chain and logistics industry. And, that’s just what’s scheduled in print. That doesn’t even encompass the many exclusive online-only content we have lined up for the remainder of the year.

Think case studies, expert columns, market research reports and more.

That’s because with the New Year comes a new editor of Food Logistics, tasked with upholding the same quality content, but packaging and delivering it in a new and improved way.

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am the new editor-in-chief of Food Logistics. I’ve spent the last 8 years as editor-in-chief of a quasi-competitor that covered supply chain and logistics, as well as food processing, including packaging, market trends, food safety, new product development and more. I possess close to 13 years’ editorial experience in the food and beverage space, am used to pounding the pavement at tradeshows and have presented at a handful of industry events.

Other fun facts, despite me working in the food and beverage industry, I’m a pretty picky eater. I laugh at my own jokes, can’t stay at a hotel that doesn’t offer Diet Coke and have a virtual door to my home office (that usually has a dog or two laying around nearby) that is always open.

Something else cool about me is that I am surrounded by a wonderful editorial and sales staff that is super smart. So smart. And, so eager to bring Food Logistics to the forefront of your news and reading list.

But, enough about me; I want to learn more about you—our readers and advertisers. I want to build—and sustain—a long-lasting relationship that involves working together to better support and grow the supply chain and logistics industry.

For example, what are some topics you would like us to cover that we haven’t thus far? What are we doing well at? Maybe you’re someone I’ve worked with in other stages of our lives, and just want to say hi? I want it all—the good, the bad, and the ugly. (Remind me in a year how that’s going….)

Remember, my virtual door is always open. So, whether it’s a press release, a funny joke, a topic idea or just a friendly hello, be sure to be in touch. [email protected]
