Lewis Business Media (LBM) has acquired Weekly Tribune, a paid-for newsletter for the UK and EU pig industries, from its co-editors Brian Chester and Paul Smith.
LBM, established in April 2012, acquired Pig World, the leading monthly magazine and website for the UK pig industry 12 months ago.
“Weekly Tribune is a good fit with Pig World’s existing portfolio and will add significantly to our presence in this market,” LBM managing director John Lewis said.
“The title has established a great reputation for providing accurate data and market analysis across the whole pork chain and we plan to build on this.
“We’re pleased that Brian and Paul will continue to contribute to the title, and look forward to developing it in the future,” he added.
The first Weekly Tribune produced by LBM will be the October 7, 2013 issue.
