Foodservice editorial connections start here
IFEC brings editors and PR/marketing communications specialists 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. PR/marketing members represent food boards, manufacturers, restaurants, non-commercials, trade groups, research firms and more.
