The Foodtown Magazine welcomes new editor

The Foodtown Magazine has a new editor. Sarah Beresford has been appointed to the role taking over from Jan Bilton who is leaving to pursue new business interests.

Ms Beresford has a passion for food and is an experienced journalist, editor and publisher, who has worked in Fiji, New Zealand and Australia.

Most recently she has worked as a freelance book editor, a project manager and a magazine contributor.

Ms Beresford says she is very much looking forward to building on the magazine’s already established brand.

“The Foodtown Magazine is a very successful title and what I term a fabulously friendly magazine. It helps people shop wisely and is a great reference point for families who need fresh meal ideas every day.

“And believe me, with two teenage daughters I know how challenging meal time can be. This title is a real friend of the family.”

Michael Glading from The Foodtown Magazine says he is delighted to have such an experienced editor.

“Sarah’s background in publishing and editorship of a number of leading consumer titles are ideal for her role as editor of The Foodtown Magazine. We’ll miss Jan who has been a tower of strength and creativity for the title. We are fortunate that she will continue to assist in a consultancy role.”

Ms Beresford starts at The Foodtown Magazine on September 18. Jan Bilton will step down from her role in November.
