I think it’s about time I told you something very important. There’s a lot more to Food Engineering than what you can hold in your hands. I’m sure many of you have visited www.foodengineeringmag.com, but you might not be aware of the recent changes we’ve made to FE’s online presence.

For instance, did you know Food Engineering now provides breaking news updates every afternoon? You can find them on our home page under the Latest Headlines box. But if you want these daily news headlines delivered immediately, “like” Food Engineering on Facebook or join our thousands of Twitter followers. And, if you haven’t already joined FE on LinkedIn, connect with us now to participate in technology discussions or to find a job. In January 2013 alone, more than 50 food and beverage positions were posted on FE’s LinkedIn page.

Food Engineering also has web exclusive articles that never appear on the printed page. All of these articles on topics such as food safety, sustainability, automation and innovation can be found using FE’s search engine on www.foodengineeringmag.com. Or, if you want these web-only articles delivered to your email inbox, sign up for FE’s twice monthly Tech Flash e-newsletter under the Resources tab on our home page.

A multimedia experience is also waiting for you on www.foodengineeringmag.com. We’ve recently launched a YouTube channel, established an e-learning center and posted many videos from past Food Automation & Manufacturing Conferences. Tune in to learn about topics from continuous improvement to sanitary plant design to the latest machinery innovations.

In addition, FE’s home page is a great starting point if you need to find replacement parts or want to look up equipment suppliers via Food Master. Foodengineeringmag.com is also your source for webinars on demand, photo galleries of fabulous foods plants and industry association and government links.

Connections to all of these valuable resources are available on www.foodengineeringmag.com. I look forward to welcoming you to FE’s digital world, where much more meets the eye than meets the ink.
