Blackwell Publishing buys Nutrition Press

Published on .

Boston—Blackwell Publishing announced Wednesday it has acquired Food and Nutrition Press.

With the deal, Blackwell adds 11 journal titles and more than 50 books to its food science list.

As part of the agreement, Blackwell will now publish Foodservice Research International, Journal of Food Biochemistry and Journal of Food Process Engineering, among other titles.

Eugene Simonoff and Associates represented Blackwell in the deal, which was finalized on Oct. 1 for an undisclosed amount.

"Blackwell Publishing has invested heavily in food science and technology over the last few years, and this represents a major step towards our goal to be the leading publisher in this area," Gordon Tibbitts, Blackwell’s U.S. president, said in a statement.
