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 $2,286 ($2,500 effective January 1, 2015), which is negotiable, especially for professional membership organizations (institutes, societies and federations), government agencies and university departments. Sole proprietors are requested to contact Jack Cooper at JLC@fien.com ; he 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.
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 - An 8 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.
