News Corp Australia’s editorial director of premium food and travel Kerrie McCallum said with the cost of living on the rise it has never been more important to deliver content to help consumers continue to treat themselves, safe in the knowledge their money will be well spent.
“The past 24 months have been incredibly tough, and we’ve missed the joy of being together and eating out,” said McCallum.
“This is one of the reasons why we are expanding our Eat Out offering, to celebrate everything we love about Australia’s unique dining scene and encourage consumers to get back out there.
“There has been a growing number of great new restaurants opening all over the country in the past six months. Our audience is hungry to read trusted and accessible restaurant news and reviews, and to plan their night out feeling confident that they have picked the venue that will give them everything they are looking for.
“It’s also why we are bringing the delicious.100 guides forward this year to later this month. It seems our traditional timing of October/November is just too far away, as audiences are wanting this content now.”
National weekend editor Mick Carroll said he was delighted to collaborate with delicious. to provide the weekend audience with credible and knowledgeable reviews and dining news along with a host of new talent.
“By boosting the amount of premium content available to readers through our Saturday magazine pages, complemented by the Sunday section in each state based on where to go and what to try, along with our annual delicious.100 guides, we are creating Australia’s largest eat out network with the new offering.”
McCallum said that the demand for lifestyle content linked to food remained strong and the new delicious. Eat Out offering was a great way for brands to connect with audiences at scale.
