Good Housekeeping
Founded in 1885, Good Housekeeping magazine reaches 22 million readers each month. The Good Housekeeping Research Institute (GHRI), which is home to the Good Housekeeping Seal and the new Green Good Housekeeping Seal, was founded in 1900 and is dedicated to improving the lives of women and their families through education and consumer product assessment. The Good Housekeeping Research Institute is staffed by engineers, chemists, nutritionists, textile pros, and other industry experts. Located on the 29th floor of the Hearst Tower in New York City, the Good Housekeeping Research Institute includes six labs plus Good Housekeeping’s famous Test Kitchen. Good Housekeeping publishes its “Triple-Test Promise” in every issue—validating that every recipe has been tested at least three times and works on any range and with any brand of cookware and ingredient. Good Housekeeping’s commitment to improving how American families eat started when it championed the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906. That commitment continues today throughout all of the magazine’s food and nutrition editorial — from signature features such as Healthy in a Hurry to Drop 5 Lbs.— and with signature programs like Cook Your Heart Out, the nation’s first heart-healthy cooking competition, launched in 2010. In addition to its U.S. flagship, Good Housekeeping publishes 13 editions around the world. Good Housekeeping is published by Hearst Magazines, a unit of Hearst Corporation.
