Benefits for GFF Members:

Editorial opportunities in Fine Food Digest – the magazine at the heart of speciality food & drink

If you’re launching a new product or changing your packaging during the next year, you can take advantage of FREE editorial coverage in Fine Food Digest, our industry-leading trade magazine.

Inclusion in Fine Food Digest’s popular Shelf Talk new products section usually costs around £170. Guild members are not only entitled to a substantial discount on this price each time they launch a new product but can benefit once a year from FREE inclusion in a special ‘News from Guild Producer Members' section, provided they have a brand new line to announce.

Producer members featured in Shelf Talk are highlighted with a Guild logo so retail members can seek out products from them.
Fine Food Digest’s journalists always look to Guild members first for news and views on industry issues.

And by keeping an eye on Fine Food Digest’s annual features list, you could feature in our editorial team’s regular sector-by-sector product round-ups too.

Reduced cost advertising

All members benefit from lower advertising rates in Fine Food Digest. Call the sales team on 01747 825200 to discuss any of the above benefits.

Finding new customers...

Our deli, food hall and farm shop members are happy to hear from all Guild producer members. Any time you need it, we will email you a full list of our retail members. Just contact for a list to be emailed to you. Please note that due to data protection, we are not permitted to include email addresses or phone numbers.

Savings on Great Taste Entries

Valuable reduced price business services
