The Source for Retail Food Industry Collaboration

Market Trends and Opportunity

This is an era of unprecedented change and opportunity. The globe is growing smaller, competition is moving faster, shoppers are more discerning, and technology is rewriting the rules of the game. Today’s marketplace is without question the most challenging we’ve ever faced. Currently, there is no media product solely dedicated to the critical issues and topics confronting senior managers in the retail food and allied industries. The demand has never been greater for a new and concise media resource that delivers news, analysis and information specific to the needs of these top managers.

100% Senior Executive Focused

The key information resources for the retail food industry, Stagnito Busisness Information and the Food Marketing Institute, have combined their strength and market knowledge to create the FIRST fully focused integrated brand for the corner office — Retail Leader. Retail Leader targets the challenges and opportunities faced by senior management in the food and non-food retailing and grocery manufacturing industries.

Such a full-scale, high-level media focus hasn’t existed until now.
