Mediaweb announced today it is “repositioning” two of its titles in an attempt to strengthen its position in the sector.
The company acquired several food industry magazines when it purchased TPL Media’s titles earlier this year.
Mediaweb publisher Toni Myers says two titles, FBT (Food & Beverage Today) and Catering Plus, are not sufficiently different from Hospitality Magazine to continue as they are.
Two staff who both worked on FBT and Catering Plus have left the company as a result of the changes.
Don Kavanagh, currently editor of Hospitality and its sub-brand Thirst magazine, will take over responsibility of the food titles and the foodnews.co.nz website, with the exception of FMCG magazine, which is edited by Tamara Rubanowski.
When Mediaweb purchased TPL Media in April no staff changes were made.
Mediaweb also publishes AdMedia, Onfilm and Management Magazines and a range of industry directories.
