Editor’s Corner: A Mid-Year Review


We are more than halfway through the year and yet it seems it was just last month we launched this year’s refreshed Retail News Insider—expanding our Market Watch feature from two pages to four, and adding more content from our in-house experts at Interactions and SAS Retail Services. With six months under our belts, it seems like a good time to take stock of where we stand today.

The feedback we’ve received on this year’s issues has been overwhelmingly positive—both from our associates and our external readers. In April, we received a Platinum Award from the Hermes Creative Awards—the highest distinction awarded to creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional and emerging media. Readership is up over last year, and you particularly seem to be enjoying our Expert Viewpoints features—which consistently gets some of the highest “click throughs” online.

In that spirit, we’re adding even more expert insights to Retail News Insider starting with this issue. Each month, we’ll share an update from our parent company, Daymon Worldwide CEO Jim Holbrook. Flip to page 6 to check out his thoughts on the food industry’s clean label movement.
