Blog: Dean BestFood refreshes parts others can't reach

Dean Best | 6 July 2007

Global mergers, acquisitions, health scandals and obesity – there is little doubt the food industry has the ability to command the front page of newspapers around the globe.

I have worked as an editor in the food and drinks sector and whilst drinks no doubt has a certain glamour attached to it, the passion that the subject of food can raise in almost every individual still makes this the industry to work in, in my opinion.

A quick look at the front page of the BBC’s news website yesterday (5 July) and there were stories on the salt content of sandwiches and news of research that flew the flag for organic foods.

But the top read story on the whole of the site yesterday? The story of a lady in Cambridgeshire who managed to come second in a cake baking contest despite being the only contestant to enter.

Evidence once more that food stories will grab headlines on almost every level.
