About Paid Subscriptions for The Rotten Apple
Support independent food integrity news and get food fraud reports every week
The Rotten Apple is a reader-supported publication. We don’t run ads or endorsements so we can stay independent and unbiased. We need your support to keep producing high quality information here and on the Trello Food Fraud Risk Information Database.
Become a paying subscriber to support Karen’s efforts with The Rotten Apple weekly newsletter and with the Trello-hosted food fraud database. Subscriptions cost just $US10 per month or US$100 per year. You can cancel anytime.
Most subscribers get their employer to pay, but if you pay yourself, your subscription is (probably!) tax deductible.
Paying subscribers get1:
Our popular once-per-week newsletter, with three interesting, short articles (food safety, food fraud, supply chains), delivered straight to your inbox every Monday, plus;
Food fraud incident reports at the end of every issue. Plus;
Horizon scanning news (that’s changes to food supply chains that might increase food fraud);
Awesome 🎧 audio versions 🎧 so you can stay up to date while on the go;
Access to an index of past topics; and
Downloadable e-book compilations of past issues.
Plus, you can feel great knowing you are supporting expert, unbiased food integrity journalism. Always independent, always ad-free.

Paid subscriptions are $US10 per month or $US100 for a year, which are mostly paid by employers. Subscription fees are used to support my efforts in bringing you the most interesting and pertinent food integrity news every week.
Group subscriptions are available for a hefty discount; check out prices for groups here.
Tax-Effective, You Say?
If you are a food professional, policy-maker or purveyor, or work in a related industry, there’s a good chance your paid subscription can be (1) paid by your company or (2) tax-deductible.
The Rotten Apple’s publishing platform automatically creates expense-account-friendly receipts and tax invoices, which makes it easy for you to claim.
