Senior Content Manager, Supermarket News

Julie Gallagher’s delicious foray into coverage of the food industry was purely accidental. With a background in technology, she joined Supermarket News as associate editor of its Technology & Logistics section in 2004, but has since covered every supermarket food category under the sun. She reported on trends taking place around the store’s perimeter as part of her two-year tenure with SN’s Fresh Market section before being named Center Store editor in 2007. She was appointed senior content editor in 2013 and senior content manager in 2014.
