Meister Media Worldwide and AgNet Media today announced the sale of Florida Grower magazine and its Florida-related assets to AgNet Media, effective March 1, 2022.
Through Florida Grower, Meister Media has invested more than 25 years of commitment to Florida’s citrus, vegetable and other specialty crop producers. Initiatives like the Florida GrowerSM Citrus Show, the Florida GrowerSM Citrus Achievement Award and the We Believe in Florida Citrus program reflect the continued importance of the state’s specialty crops growers, not only to Florida but to the rest of the United States and the world.
As they navigate the immediate challenges facing their businesses and the industry at large, Florida growers need a single, unified information source to assist them. Meister Media representatives believe AgNet Media, with its in-state presence and market leadership, is best positioned to serve that need.
“We are thrilled to bring Florida Grower into the AgNet Media portfolio,” says Robin Loftin, president of AgNet Media. “The publication has a long and storied history of serving Florida growers. We share that commitment to a grower-first emphasis in all that we do at AgNet Media. We are proud to continue that tradition and serve Florida Grower’s audience as we move forward with this transition.”
