Australian Good Taste magazine to close ahead of launch of Taste magazine

Good Taste magazineNews Limited’s food magazine for Woolworths, Australian Good Taste, is to cease publication.

The move comes seven months after News Limited’s lifestyle arm NewsLifeMedia announced the closure of MasterChef Magazine and a month since the company said that it would be extending its online brand Taste with the launch of a new magazine title to launch in September.

The August edition of Australian Good Taste will be the title’s last.

According to the joint announcement from Woolworths and NewsLifeMedia: “Woolworths will continue to focus on its popular and free Fresh magazine which is published by NewsLifeMedia’s custom division on behalf of the retailer.”

Nicole Sheffield, MD of NewsLifeMedia, said: “Australian Good Taste is a wonderful title and we have enjoyed a very successful relationship with Woolworths. Closing a title is never easy, however we have jointly chosen to explore new opportunities going forward.”

The statement said: “NewsLifeMedia is endeavouring to redeploy all staff affected. NewsLifeMedia recently announced the launch of magazine which will be ranged nationally across newsagents, all major supermarkets and independents.”
