The Packer publisher’s produce roots run deep

The article notes that the acquisition placed Vance Publishing in the top three of more than 200 Chicago-based business newspaper firms then in operation.

Starting with this issue, you’ll notice the Vance 75th Anniversary logo.

Here in the Lenexa office, we also house Produce Retailer and Citrus & Vegetable magazines in the produce group, and a protein group includes well-known brands in their field, such as Drovers and Dairy Herd Management.

Much has changed in the media business in the nearly half a century since The Packer joined the Vance lineup.

But the forward-looking spirit of its founder lives on as the benchmark for the company as digital media open up new ways to report the news while helping clients and customers tailor and target their marketing messages.

My Dad worked for the Packer from 1946-1971 when he died. He was a Packer man thru and thru. His territory was served out of Pittsburgh, PA. Enjoyed reading that it is still a vibrant and exciting company with which to be associated. Thanks for the memory.
