Press Release

TORONTO, Nov. 2, 2023 – Foodism, Toronto’s largest dedicated food and drink magazine, celebrates its 40th issue this November. Launched online in 2015, followed by a premium print publication in 2016, Foodism quickly solidified itself as an authority on Toronto’s food and drink scene. The brand has since built a loyal audience on Instagram, YouTube and through in person events, with the print magazine remaining its mainstay.

“Forty issues of a print magazine is a huge achievement, especially in this climate,” says Foodism’s publisher and Twenty Two Media’s founder Krista Faist. “We are beyond thankful to our readers and partners for their support over the last eight years. Local media is so important to a well-balanced media landscape, and with their continued support we hope for many more issues to come.”

To commemorate the milestone, the brand has launched the ‘Foodism 40,’ recognizing 40 hospitality professionals who are committed to bettering the industry.

“Supporting the local community has always been a cornerstone of Foodism,” says Foodism’s editor Katie Bridges. “The Foodism 40 is our way of saying thank you to all of the incredible people making this city so special.”

The Foodism 40 are recognized in five categories:

  • Community Changemakers
  • Champions of DEI
  • Leaders in Sustainability
  • Industry Innovators
  • Tourism Trailblazers

Individuals recognized represent organizations including Second Harvest, Unboxed Market, Community Fridges, Quell, 100km Foods and Indigenous Tourism Ontario.
