At William Reed we set ourselves tough goals – and we enjoy the challenge of beating them. That’s why today, William Reed Business Media is almost unrecognisable from the business we were even just five years ago.

But every change that’s taken place is the direct result of our determination to do what we’ve always done better still – to help everyone in the food and drink industry connect with the vital news and information they need. From product launches to company profiles. From manufacturing issues to retail trends. From market opportunities to job openings.

What has changed is the scope and depth of what we offer. And, of course, the way we deliver it. So alongside The Grocer​​ and Morning Advertiser​​, we now produce a list of successful titles catering for a host of niche markets.

Our ambition is no less than to be the communication hub of the food and drink industry. And we're on our way!
