Mental Floss spoke to a few food stylists working in TV, film, and commercials—from Game of Thrones to Taco Bell—to bring you the tricks of their magical trade.
As many large corporations delay payments to suppliers stretching out well beyond 30 days to 60, 90 or even 120, electronic invoicing firms, B2B payments and financial companies like MasterCard are stepping into the payment gap, largely bypassing banks.
