Bill Gates once said, “Bringing together the right information with the right people will dramatically improve a company’s ability to develop and act on strategic business opportunities.”

This slice of wisdom holds particular relevance for today’s snack and bakery industry.

Some of the right information begins with our annual Buyer’s Guide, an essential resource that will help you make the connections between the right information and the right supply-chain partners to help drive your business forward. You can also visit our online Buyer’s Guide at if a digital directory is desired. We continually update this essential database to better meet your business needs.

Offering the right information is central to our business at Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery, and we’re growing to bring you more need-to-know information that will help drive your business forward. To that end, we’re expanding our content in 2018, adding regular Sanitation articles covering new and essential sanitation equipment, tools, materials and technology in every issue starting in January 2018. This new pillar of content will touch on topics like allergen control, sanitary facility design, sanitary equipment design, sanitation software, air handling equipment, water management systems, infrastructure maintenance, chemicals and lubricants, and pest prevention.

As you might already know, Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery is the exclusive media sponsor of the annual Sanitary Design Workshop, a vital industry event supported by associations across snack and baking. Adding Sanitation to our regular content mix furthers our mission to continue bringing you the most-encompassing breadth of essential and cutting-edge information anywhere in the industry.

We also know that finding the right people for today’s changing operations environment is top-of-mind for companies across snack and baking. Therefore, we’re partnering with the American Bakers Association to bring new expert insights into the subject of Workforce Development throughout 2018 and moving forward. These columns will offer new solutions to finding and training tomorrow’s snack and bakery workforce so you have the necessary resources to grow into the future.
