As we turn the page to end yet another year, I want to personally thank all of our readers, advertisers, expert columnists and processors who have made this yet another fantastic year for Refrigerated & Frozen Foods.

From superb plant stories to unique content surrounding some of today’s most advanced trends, technologies and solutions for the cold food industry, we still remain the only publication serving the $310 billion refrigerated and frozen foods market.

Here’s what’s new to our brand:

On-trend editorial topics. Refrigerated & Frozen Foods’ editorial niche is unique simply because we deliver information on how to process, package and distribute temperature-sensitive products. That’s why we added to the 2016 editorial calendar such topics as tolling 101, building for LEED certification, how to maximize fuel economy with compressed natural gas, what to do when the government shows up, worker retention and training, how to mitigate agroterrorism, site selection and a special report on lift trucks and racking systems.

Expert columns. Does your company have the solution to a common problem affecting the cold food industry? From packaging and food safety to energy management and supply chain and logistics, get your voice heard and educate the industry through a non-commercial, non-promotional problem-solving expert column. Go here to learn more.

Nominations for upcoming awards.Refrigerated & Frozen Foods offers a variety of awards to cold food processors throughout the year. Go here to find out how your company can submit a nomination and possibly get on the cover of an upcoming issue.

Photo galleries.Often times, several of the photos from our plant tours don’t make it into print. So, instead of hitting the cutting room floor, we put them online in a gallery. Check them out here.

Tradeshow exhibits.Being included in our publication (whether it be in editorial or advertising) is one thing, but having that same publication distributed at several tradeshows and conferences is another. Don’t forget to check us out at several industry events such as IPPE 2016, AFFI-CON 2016, RFA Conference 2016, IIAR Conference 2016, FA&M Conference 2016, Global Cold Chain Expo, IBIE 2016 and more. Go here to access our 2016 editorial calendar, which outlines our tradeshow and show distribution schedule.

2015 was a great year, and with your help, I anticipate 2016 to be even better. Thank you for your continued readership and support.
