EATINGWELL DEBUTS FIRST THEMED ISSUE ON THE FUTURE OF FOOD


EatingWell’s Future of Food Summit with Industry and Consumer Leaders Takes Place on September 18 in New York.


(NEW YORK, NY/SHELBURNE, VT, September 9, 2019)—Meredith Corporation’s (NYSE: MDP: Meredith.com) EatingWell is devoting its October issue to the future of food – an important theme given the brand’s mission to celebrate fresh ingredients and where our food comes from. The issue will premiere a QR code on the cover, linking readers to video content on Instagram. QR codes will also be embedded throughout the issue, which will be available on newsstands nationwide on September 13.

To mark this initiative, EatingWell will feature its first Future of Food Summit on September 18 in New York. Leading academics, nutrition experts, trend forecasters, farmers and food industry professionals will discuss how our food system needs to evolve in the years ahead at this event.

“As a media brand we have always focused on how food is changing and getting better, both on our plates and on the farm. That’s why we’re so excited to devote an entire issue and a whole day to speaking with experts about what the future of food holds,” says Jessie Price, Editor-in-Chief, EatingWell.

The issue will feature its monthly recipes, and EatingWell’s dive into food’s future will examine numerous topics, including the extraordinary breakthroughs in nutrition, like tracking what we eat via sensors in our body and how gene editing may deliver food that is more abundant and nutritious and has a lighter impact on the environment. Other subjects will range from GMOs to CRISPR technology and more.

EatingWell’s October issue includes a high-impact sponsorship of the Kitchen of the Future editorial piece about Mrs. Meyer’s. The gate unit features a native unit and custom advertorial.
