As regular readers of FoodNavigator-USA have likely noticed, we're making changes to the way our readers access some of our news content. After reading two articles, all users will be asked to register with the site for free to keep track of important food & beverage industry news.

Even if you are currently signed up to receive our newsletters, you will still need to register to access more than two articles every 30 days.

To register, click on the 'Register' tab on the top right of the homepage and set up a free account.

This is NOT a paywall, and all content on FoodNavigator-USA continues to be available for free to all readers, but being able to tailor our content to our audience will help us maintain this position. 

Like many media organizations globally, we are implementing what is known as ‘metered’ access, asking site users, from October 25, to register to continue to interact with our news content as part of our ongoing strategy to develop a deeper relationship with our readers.

For now, we are only metering news content. Other pages such as resources, promotional features, listing pages and the homepage are still accessible without limitations.

To access more than two articles over 30 days, users must register ​​

Newsletter subscribers will continue to receive newsletters as normal and they, together with those visiting the site via search engines or social media, can read two full stories​​ over 30 days​​ before being asked to register.

We understand that every single one of our readers is unique. The founder of a food tech startup has different interests to the CEO or regulatory affairs manager of a global CPG manufacturer. By registering with some basic details, in the future FoodNavigator-USA will be able to:

  • Personalize the content you receive via email newsletters
  • Only inform you about webinars, events, and downloadable resources that you really care about
  • Keep you up to date on the latest developments in your niche areas of interest

What if I already subscribe to a FoodNavigator-USA newsletter?

If you're already signed up to receive newsletters from us, you will still need to register to enjoy unlimited articles.​ Don’t worry, you will keep receiving the email updates that you have already opted-in for – you can manage these on our email preference hub​.

Once an account has been created, you will enjoy unlimited FREE access to all content on FoodNavigator-USA and will no longer see any registration messaging while logged in to your account.

Your login details will also give you access to our sister sites FoodNavigator.com (Europe) and FoodNavigator-Asia.com (Asia and Middle East).

As a reminder, even if you are currently signed up to receive our newsletters, you will still need to register to access more than two articles every 30 days.
