Sharon Palmer’s Press Kit
The writing on my website is not the result of money or an exchange of goods. As a small part of my work as a food and nutrition writer, I have
accepted particular writing and communication projects in which I may write specific content in relationship to a food company or organization. On
these occasions, I ensure that my assigned writing project is very clearly defined and that it does not affect my coverage of food and nutrition in other
areas. For example, I may accept a project to write a white paper on a particular food or nutrient that is limited in scope to that particular project. Or I
may provide consulting services to an organization to research and summarize the nutritional benefits of a particular food or nutrient. As a respected
journalist, I do not let these assignments interfere in my unbiased coverage of food and nutrition. I disclose all relationships with food companies and
organizations on this website. Currently, I am offering my services as a nutrition and communications expert to The Tomato Products Wellness Council
and to Daisy Cottage Cheese.
