Deerfield, Ill.—Stagnito Media's Retail Leader Group has announced a strategic partnership with the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) in which content from the food retailer and wholesaler organization will be featured in a special section in every issue of Retail Leader. Additional news and data from FMI will appear in Retail Leader's e-newsletters, executive roundtables, webcasts and research. The brand's earlier partnership with the Grocery Manufacturers Association has been terminated.
"The FMI partnership was designed to further strengthen Retail Leader's role as a unique and valuable information resource for consumer packaged goods retail executives," said Bruce Hendrickson, Stagnito's corporate marketing director. The first FMI special section will appear in the March/April issue of Retail Leader, which is published nine times annually, with six regular issues and three special issues.
