Foodservice editorial content starts here
IFEC brings foodservice editors, PR professionals and news makers together to exchange ideas, share resources and confer on editorial content for foodservice-engaged readers. Member editors are the voices of the leading print and digital magazines while PR members and news makers represent/hail from food boards, manufacturers, restaurants, non-commercial operations, trade groups, research firms and more.
Benefits of membership include entry to "Office Hours," private meetings between editors and publicists during the annual conference for discussing editorial placements, and access to "Story Mart," an online service that relays requests from editors for story leads, photos, recipes, etc., to publicists. Through these and other programs, members build relationships that lead to new ideas appearing in print, online and on menus.
