With Thanksgiving upon us, it’s a fitting time to pause and reflect on the cornucopia of gifts abounding in the food industry, paramount to which is the pivotal role your companies play in feeding families and enriching lives with the services you provide in your local communities, and the countless food and related products you sell to help customers sustain and improve their lives on a daily basis.
Along these lines, I’d also like to take this opportunity to let you, our valued readers, know that we’re deeply grateful for your support in making Progressive Grocer the most well respected source of need-to-know news in the industry.
Whether you count on us for the day’s top headlines, or to learn something new about up-to-the minute consumer or industry trends, or to simply keep tabs on your competitors from a distance, your faithful, frequent visits to our website and related digital products, your interest and participation in our live events and award programs, as well as your loyal affinity to our monthly print edition, provides us with ample inspiration to do our very best to provide the diverse and dynamic food industry with the most reliable, timely coverage in the marketplace.
Because of you, we have been able to grow explosively in the past year under the Stagnito Media umbrella, and we will continue to expand and diversify our offerings in new directions in the coming weeks and months ahead to further enhance our brand’s mission to remain Ahead of What’s Next.
In striving to meet our reader’s expectations, we welcome your suggestions and feedback regarding our coverage. What do you like and what don’t you like? What type of stories would you like to see more of? We’d love to hear from you.
In addition to sharing our sincere thanks with our extended community of readers, we’d also like to convey our profound appreciation for a few of the most important things that you do on a daily basis…
To put food on our tables
To provide hundreds of thousands of Americans with well paying, diverse career opportunities.
To generously support local communities with meaningful charitable outreach.
To set the bar ever higher in the areas of service, sustainability and corporate responsibility.
To offer shoppers increasingly impressive settings in which to shop, dine and learn.
To tenaciously withstand the slugfest that defines food retailing today.
Finally, let us always remember that it is not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, that is the true measure of our thanks.
