As a specialist food and drink agency targeting the foodservice, grocery and retail trade we do more than our fair share of B2B communications. As such we have long been an advocates of B2B Marketing and the report and league table it produces each year ranking agencies and providing insight to the industry. This year we are delighted to rank as 61st overall and in the ‘Top 30 Independent Integrated B2B Agencies’ at 28th, coming in 4th for independent integrated B2B agencies with less than 25 employees (we are after all – as trite as it may sound – big enough to matter but small enough to care).

One of the real positives that came out of the wider report for us is that clients are increasingly looking for specialist agencies to work with so that they are assured of a knowledgeable team that really understands their business and their target market. As a food and drink specialist in foodservice, convenience and consumer markets for nearly 33 years, it is fair to say we know our onions. Our broad range of expertise includes PR, social, digital, design, creative and marketing strategy, at the heart of which is our understanding of the world of food and drink ensuring we offer a truly integrated service to our ever growing portfolio of clients. Working smartly, closely and collaboratively in a truly integrated way we provide creative and innovative solutions informed by our industry knowledge, it’s what we are known for and it’s fair to say that we do our best work when we become an extension of the client’s team.

As such it’s great to be ranked in such a highly respected 2020 report and important to celebrate external validation of our work and recognition of our performance. But more important is to understand that this is all down to our fabulous bean team, who’s dedication, creativity, intelligent thinking and teamwork keep us ahead of the pack. It truly is a ‘dream bean team’! So a big well done to all our talented individuals who turn out great work and keep our reputation riding high.
