KANSAS CITY, MO. — Sosland Publishing has appointed Bruce Webster as publisher of Food Business News, effective Oct. 19. Webster previously was associate publisher of Food Business News and was instrumental in the launch of Food Business News in March 2005.

Webster will continue to work closely with the Sosland editorial team, ensuring the delivery of high-quality news while supporting the company’s advertisers in achieving their strategic marketing objectives and goals.
