Taste Buds – Response to Covid-19

Taste Buds has got a important role to play in supporting Devon’s food and drink businesses – I hope this will help.

I know you’ll be as worried as I am about your livelihoods and of those around you. Taste Buds has got a important role to play in supporting Devon’s food and drink businesses – I hope this will help.

We have decided to offer a free-of-charge advert in the MayJune 20 issue to any business that has advertised with us in the past 12 months (JulAug19 – MayJun20 issues). If you qualify, you do not need to contact us. We will email you in the next 7 days with the next steps. There is nothing to pay for this service.

If you do not quality for a free advert we can still help you. Tag @TasteBudsMag on Facebook or Twitter and we will share and retweet to help you get your message to the widest possible audience.

In the coming weeks, it is impossible for us to be able to guarantee the delivery of a printed magazine with many of our usual outlets closed, or if open, likely having fewer visitors. For this reason the MayJune issue will be digital only. It will be sent to our database of 41,000+ subscribers, distributed on social media and via the Taste Buds website.

Moving forward, print is as popular as ever. We will be back to normal soon, stronger than ever, as will you.

My heartfelt commitment to you is that Jennie, Julie and I will do everything we can to help you through this. While I appreciate that our gesture alone will not be enough, rest assured that we care, and that we are in this together.

Jeff, Jennie and Julie
