Titles in these areas include National Provisioner, Beverage Industry, Dairy Field and Food & Drug Packaging.


Content and revenue-building opportunities exist between Medical World's food and beverage titles and Ascend Media's Gaming Group titles, including Casino Journal and International Gaming & Wagering Business, Ascend said in a statement.
