As many of you have probably learned, Refrigerated & Frozen Foods is undergoing some changes.

First, our parent company, BNP Media, Troy, Mich., underwent a sales reorganization, where all 12 BNP Media food, beverage and packaging publications are now housed under the FBP (food, beverage and packaging) BNP Solutions umbrella.

BNP Solutions is a collection of tools and resources for the B2B media community, offering everything from webinars, podcasts, native advertising and social media sponsorships to e-blasts and custom advertising promotions, among other features, across all 12 food and beverage packaging books. I invite you to check out to learn more about this new market strategy. 

Secondly, please meet Mark Tisdale, our new publisher and industry expert of food and beverage packaging. Mark brings strong digital advertising experience in category management, consumer packaged goods and strategic planning. Based out of Atlanta, he previously worked at Nielsen Business Media, Stagnito Communications, Harbor Communications and Collinson Media & Events. Go to to learn more about Mark and his vision for Refrigerated & Frozen Foods. He can be reached at

Despite these changes, rest assure that it’s still business as usual over here. Refrigerated & Frozen Foods has been the only publication dedicated to the value-added convenience chilled and frozen foods channel for the past 20 years, and we have no intention of slowing down. 

Please continue to send me company and personnel news, case studies, expert columns, press releases on new equipment, products and solutions, updates to packaging and more. Nominate your company or a customer for one of our cover stories. And, stay tuned for our second biannual Best New Retail Products contest.

Change is healthy, and so is our future. 

Hope you continue to be a part of our journey to growth, success and long-lasting relationships.
