|The magazine will be edited by National Good Food editor, Ardyn Bernoth, who says the addition of the glossy publication builds on the fact that the Tuesday newspaper section is a very popular lift out in The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald, and will entice even more readers to engage with the brand.
“With goodfood.com.au the most popular premium food website in Australia and the publication of our second cookbook in the works [following the success of Favourite Recipes, published in April with Simon & Schuster] we are of course also looking at further cross-platform opportunities,” said Jenkins.
Nine Director of Sales – Publishing, Chris Nardi, said the launch of the new magazine presented an excellent opportunity for clients wanting to target a highly savvy, food-loving audience keen to be “in the know” about the latest food trends and openings across the nation.
“More than two million Australians read Good Food in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and on goodfood.com.au each month. To extend such a strong brand into a glossy format is exciting and offers so many more opportunities for advertisers to reach this highly engaged audience,” Nardi said.
“Good Food magazine will be the best way to reach Australia’s food lovers in a beautiful content environment.”
The 40th anniversary of the Good Food Guide Awards will also see the Australian food industry’s annual night of nights held in Brisbane for the first time. The interstate move follows the highly successful launch of the national Good Food Guide Awards in Sydney in 2017, and hosting by Melbourne in 2018.
The awards will be held at one of Brisbane’s newest and most stunning venues, Howard’s Hall at Howard Smith Wharves, located beneath the Story Bridge with panoramic views of the city skyline, on Monday, September 30.
