The team of FoodProductionDaily has something to celebrate—the number of industry professionals following us on Twitter just passed the 4,000 mark.
Through our Twitter feed (which you can read and follow by going here ), we have been sharing breaking news on food processing developments, events, packaging technology and other relevant information. It looks like our work has paid off; each day, more and more industry leaders are connecting with us on Twitter to follow FPD news and engage with our staff.
If you aren't following FPD on Twitter, you might want to start. It's a good place to keep up on the latest happenings with big consumer goods firms like Kraft and Tyson; hear about emerging technologies from packaging giants like Tetra Pak; and follow crucial regulatory and safety issues emerging from the US Food and Drug Administration, the European Food Safety Authority and other influential agencies.
In addition to FPD's Twitter feed, there are other ways to keep connected with FPD and other industry members. Please take a moment to check these out and engage with FPD, so you don't miss a thing.
