News – “These 22 Food Mags Will Be Owned by the Same Company” – As expected, magazine publishing titan Time Inc. agreed to sell itself to one of the company’s major competitors, Meredith Corp., over the weekend, in an all-cash sale valued at around $3 billion. Conservative-leaning tycoons Charles G. and David H. Koch helped Meredith with an infusion of around $600 million from their private equity arm.

Both Time and Meredith publish some of the world’s most popular food magazines, as well as family, health, and general lifestyle-themed publications that also cover cooking and entertaining. Here’s a list of all the major food-related titles that will now be owned by Meredith, with letters indicating their pre-acquisition affiliations, in alphabetical order:
