About Us

Food & Drink Matters is circulated to decision makers involved in the UK’s food and drink markets. Each edition updates readers with current trends and developments, as well as new products and services launched into the marketplace. This makes Food & Drink Matters an excellent reference tool.

At Food & Drink Matters, we do not publish a forward features list and work issue to issue. Typically we publish the following features regularly:

Exhibition reviews and previews, health and safety, cleaning and hygiene, print and packaging, labelling, automation, food and drink processing, food and drink manufacturing, logistics and distribution, import/export, security, heating, ventilation & air conditioning, refrigeration, hospitality, retail, facilities management & appointments.

If you would like to feature an advertorial or advertisement for your company in the publication, please contact us.
