When we restructured our membership plans, we took into consideration the needs and limited budgets of smaller organizations, including nonprofits and NGOs. We priced the plans as low as we can and therefore are unable to offer any further discounts. Membership plans are not expensive. especially compared with dues of other industry organizations. For example, the Silver level is only US$99/year, or US$8.25 per month. This is the same as the cost for two cups of coffee or a quickservice (fast food) lunch, which are things you are already accustomed to buying at these prices. When you put our pricing in this perspective, you can see that our membership plans really are extremely affordable!
If your company would like to sponsor memberships for worthy professionals in less wealthy countries, please get in touch with us at help(at)worldfoodtravel(dot)org. Because our pricing is transparent, you can see that a donation of US$2500, for example, will pay for Silver level memberships for 25 professionals for one year! And your company can get exposure on the homepage of our website as a supporter!
