This is the leading resource for buyers of food ingredients and processing machinery; pharmaceutical and cosmetics ingredients and manufacturing equipment; printing industry supplies; printing and converting equipment; packaging machinery; as well as packaging components and materials, putting suppliers in touch with thousands of potential buyers every day.
Food Review has been the industry mouthpiece for the past 39 years. Incorporating Beverage Review and Packaging Review, the publication is more comprehensive, relevant and valuable than ever. It is the only publication of its kind in the country to target decision makers in the manufacturing processes of food, beverages, and related industries. It offers incisive and authoritative reports on all aspects of the process, informs readers about the introduction of new ingredients, equipment, products and packs, and provides objective commentary on local and international trends and issues, as well as significant processing and packaging technologies.

Readership is diverse, and includes general management, marketing, production and research personnel from the cosmetics, toiletries, household products, pharmaceuticals, health products, machinery and packaging material sectors.
As the most consistent magazine in its sector, Graphix has stood the test of time.

The editorial team goes to great lengths to ensure the information portrayed is factual and current, guaranteeing readers look to Graphix to keep them abreast of the latest developments in their industry.

Graphix has been serving the printing and related industries – from pre-press to post production – for 40 years, and pioneered many aspects of specialised publishing: Graphix was the first publication in South Africa to boast a laminated cover, and its pages are often used to demonstrate the qualities of new papers, bindings, inks, printing plates, foils, and much more.
