Lauren R. Hartman is the new editor of BNP Media's Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery, located in Deerfield, Ill. Prior to joining SF&WB, Hartman was senior editor of Packaging Digest magazine, Oak Brook, Ill. She possesses nearly 30 years of experience as an accomplished journalist and editor, specializing in packaging case history articles, production line features, trend pieces and more, both in print and online. Hartman has visited countless packaging and plant operations and conferences in both the United States and overseas. Her industry background, lively reporting and expertise helped shape Packaging Digest into a successful brand.
 
“Lauren joins Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery with a strong track record of editorial experience and will be a great asset to our team and company,” notes Jeff Heath, publisher.

Hartman’s articles and editorial work has won multiple awards from the American Society of Business Publications (ASBPE) for Packaging Digest's tradeshow daily magazines. She has specialized in covering package manufacturing, converting, smart and active packaging, radio-frequency identification and sustainability, and also has worked in public relations. She has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Northern Illinois University. Hartman resides with her family in northwest suburban Chicago.

"I'm very excited,” Hartman says. “The production of snack and bakery products is integral to the function of packaging them, so the transition to covering products themselves and to focusing on more upstream production processes will be very familiar to me.”

The brand focuses on new product developments, snack and bakery production, advances in technology, market trends and critical issues that impact its audiences' companies' bottom lines.
