...Pleased to meet you. We're less about the sweets and more about helping food and drink brands hit the 'sweet spot' when it comes to all things strategic, creative, marketing, digital, PR and social media.
We are an award-winning integrated food and drink agency (a mouthful in itself). For nearly 30 years we have been working with some of the UK’s best-loved food and drink businesses, from small craft producers to big blue-chip brands. We are passionate about the foodservice, out of home and retail markets and our bean team has proven expertise at delivering strategic, creative and effective communications across marketing, design, digital, PR and social media. Our accolades include: Top 50 B2B Marketing Agency, Recommended Agency Status with RAR, Finalist in the RAR Awards 2017, top 20 ranking in both The Drum’s Independent Agency Census 2016 and The Drum’s Design Census 2016, as well as award winning client work across CIPR Pride Awards and FPA Marketing Award. Our approach is built on a strong foundation of insight to ensure we hit the ‘Jellybean Sweet Spot’, which goes something like this…
