Press release – for immediate release
nextmedia acquires healthyfood.com and myeverydaywellbeing.com
Today, nextmedia Pty Ltd announced it has purchased print and digital brands Healthy Food Guide and My Everyday Wellbeing from NZ-based publisher Healthy Life Media Ltd.
Healthy Food Guide magazine was launched in New Zealand and Australia in 2005 and, from 2012, nextmedia has published the Australian edition under license. Workplace wellbeing platform My Everyday Wellbeing was originally launched in 2018 and rebranded in 2021.
Both these brands provide credible, science-backed information on how to live a healthier life. Currently, healthyfood.com has paid digital subscribers from 35 countries and My Everyday Wellbeing has many leading corporates subscribed to its product which promotes health and wellbeing to employees.
Arek Widawski, managing director of nextmedia says: “We have worked with Healthy Food Guide for many years, so know the brand well. Now, with healthyfood.com also under our publishing umbrella, we will be able to offer a much more complex platform to our readers. We think that My Everyday Wellbeing is a perfect product for the times, we have big plans for the growth of these brands both domestically and internationally”.
Phil Ryan, managing director of Healthy Life Media and founder of both brands says: “We are truly excited to see a global publisher take these two brands on their next phase of growth. Several years ago, we reset the NZ business to being 100 per cent digital and have been growing ever since, nextmedia are now poised to accelerate this growth. It has been a pleasure to work with so many fine people on these brands and I wish to sincerely thank all those involved over the years.”

Healthy Life Media Ltd, the publishers of Healthy Food Guide magazine have announced that the award-winning magazine will be changing to being published in digital format only after the November print issue comes off sale.
“ Like many publishers around the world, we are finding that audiences are migrating online, especially to mobile, and, meanwhile, publishing in print format is increasingly unsustainable. So, we will continue to invest in our website (healthyfood.com) to serve these digital audiences with evidence-based, expert advice on healthy eating and improving lifestyle. For those who prefer the print version of the magazine, we are expecting that the Australian edition of the magazine will be in shops from late November”, says Managing Director, Phil Ryan.
Existing print subscribers will be offered a choice of an extended digital subscription or a refund for unexpired portions of print subscriptions.
