With Patrick and Joyce joining the team we have in place, we look forward to producing the leading information resource for food and beverage processors.

PMMI Media Group, a division of PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, recently welcomed two industry heavyweights to their growing roster of business-to-business media professionals. Patrick Young, the former Publisher of Food Engineering, and Joyce Fassl, the former Editor-in-Chief of Food Engineering, have joined the Chicago-based company to launch a new media brand called ProFood World. The new brand, debuting this summer, will cover news, innovations, products and technologies for the global food and beverage processing industry.

Patrick Young brings over three decades of related experience to his new position. He has been with BNP Media for the past 15 years, most recently Publisher of BNP’s Food Engineering Network, which includes Food Engineering, Food Master, Refrigerated & Frozen Foods, related websites and Food Engineering’s Food Automation & Manufacturing Conference. Prior experience includes sales and sales management positions at McGraw-Hill’s Healthcare Information Group and the Chilton Company. In his new role as Publisher of ProFood World, Patrick will also work closely with PMMI’s ProFood Tech team. ProFood Tech (April 4-6, 2017, Chicago) is a new food and beverage processing exposition, powered by PACK EXPO, Anuga and the International Dairy Foods Association. Additionally, Patrick will be working with PMMI’s OpX Leadership Network, a community of manufacturing, engineering and operations professionals. Through open dialogue between CPG manufacturers and OEMs, OpX Leadership Network provides a forum for solving common operational challenges.

Joyce Fassl has covered the food and beverage processing industry for over 20 years, most recently as Editor-in-Chief of Food Engineering. In addition to her responsibilities as chief editor, Fassl was program director for Food Engineering’s Food Automation & Manufacturing Conference. Previous to her work at BNP Media, she oversaw content development for the debut of Packexpo.com. As the new ProFood World Editor-in-Chief, Joyce will oversee coverage of news, trends, products and technologies in food safety, automation, processing, packaging, material handling and sustainability for food and beverage processing professionals. Joyce will also continue as a well-respected speaker and moderator for various food processing events. A website, newsletters and other digital products will be produced under the ProFood World brand, edited for manufacturing, engineering, operation and supply chain/logistics executives.

PMMI Media Group President, Joe Angel, shares his enthusiasm: “We’re excited to welcome two of the most knowledgeable and experienced professionals in the food industry press to PMMI Media Group. With Patrick and Joyce joining the team we have in place, we look forward to producing the leading information resource for food and beverage processors. ProFood World will be powered by PMMI Media Group’s proven expertise in serving business-to-business markets, and by the resources of PMMI, co-producers of the upcoming ProFood Tech show.”

More information about ProFood World will be announced this Summer.
