FIEN Message Delivery

FIEN messages are delivered only by e-mail to subscribing organizations in the agriculture and food industry, such as food companies and their trade associations; consulting, public relations and law firms; professional membership organizations such as institutes, societies and federations; Congressional offices and government agencies; and university departments.

The annual fee for delivery of FIEN messages is $2,500, which is negotiable, especially for professional membership organizations (institutes, societies and federations), government agencies and university departments. Sole proprietors are requested to contact Elana Natker at elana@fien.com ; she will work with you to negotiate a reasonable subscription fee.

Each organization that has a paid or free trial subscription for FIEN messages may assign up to five individuals on its staff (employees or partners) to receive FIEN messages on a no additional charge basis.

  • Each of the five individuals may choose to receive information in as many of the subject areas as may be of interest. In other words, a person interested in food labeling, food safety and nutrition may have their name on those and related lists; another person interested in occupational safety and health may be on that list; another person interested in clean air and clean water issues may be on those lists, and so forth.
  • Another five individuals may be added for an additional per person annual fee of ten percent of the annual fee paid by the organization, with a minimum per person annual fee of $60.
  • Additional individuals beyond these ten may be added for an additional per person annual fee of five percent of the annual fee paid by the organization, with a minimum per person annual fee of $60.
  • Subscribers may assign elected officers and committee leaders and/or consulting, public relations and law firms to receive FIEN messages on a no additional charge basis until the next invoice date with a minimum of one year. The purpose is to allow these individuals to become familiar with the value of FIEN messages, perhaps leading them to obtain a separate subscription for their organization.
  • University Departments may assign students with an interest in food regulatory and policy developments to receive FIEN messages on a no charge basis until they graduate and are gainfully employed.
  • Subscribers may assign their interns to receive FIEN messages on a no charge basis during their term of service.

Mergers - In the event that two FIEN, LLC subscribers merge, it is expected that in the year following the merger, the fee paid by the merged company will be equal to the amount paid by the acquirer plus two thirds of the fee paid in the previous year by the acquired company. In the second year following the merger, it is expected that the fee paid by the merged company will be the amount paid by the acquirer plus one third of the amount previously paid by the acquired company.

Free Trial - A 4 week free trial period is available only to organizations in the agriculture and food industry, including food companies and their trade associations, professional societies, university departments, government offices, consultants, and law firms.
* If you are interested in a free trial please contact Elana Natker at elana@fien.com.
