Baking & Snack Baking Directory and Buyers Guide

Publishes: February
Ad Close: December 20

Two resources...one comprehensive issue.  

As the only complete source of information on grain-based foods producers and industry suppliers, this issue offers executives the convenience of both a directory and buyers guide. The Directory section offers a comprehensive listing of all major producers of grain-based foods categorized by products produced and includes both headquarters and plant locations. The Buyers Guide lists all the key industry suppliers indexed by the products and services commonly used by grain-based foods producers. The publication is organized and designed to be easy to navigate.

Stand Out in the Crowd - Make it Easy for Your Customers to Find You

By including your company in the Directory & Buyers Guide you can dominate your product categories in the Buyers Guide section. With your display advertisement you will receive a special, full-color listing in the Manufacturer’s Guide section and your logo will be displayed with your company listing. Please note, non-display advertisers just receive a very simple listing in this area.

Additionally, under every specific product listing that you supply your company/brand name will be alphabetically prioritized to the front of the list and highlighted in red with your web site included. Please note, non-display advertisers will have a basic treatment at the bottom of the listings.
If your marketing plans call for standing out among your competitors and making it easier for your customers to locate your products, then you need to participate in the Directory & Buyers Guide.

Combined Circulation...Widespread Distribution

Your single advertisement in the Directory & Buyers Guide will give you exposure to both the Baking & Snack and Milling & Baking News subscribers as the issue offers combined circulation to an expanded user base. This insures your advertisement will be delivered to all levels of decision makers. In Fact, 92% of the subscribers have influence in the purchasing decisions at their companies*. The subscriber base is composed of the following job functions:

• Top Management/Administration • Plant Operations/Engineering
• Technical/R&D/Quality Control • Purchasing/Marketing

Annual Issue...Year-Long Shelf Life

As an annual, special issue, the Directory & Buyers Guide is used time and time again by industry executives throughout the year. In fact, research shows the average subscriber refers to the publication 9.8 times per year*. No other advertising opportunity can match the value and staying power of this 350+ page issue.
