Why are strategies for the food and drink sector different from others?

The food and drink industry is a highly competitive space, with new products and trends constantly emerging. Therefore, it’s important for businesses in this sector to stay on top of their game and have a customized PR strategy that sets them apart.

Trade PR and why it’s so important in the food and drink industry

Trade PR typically involves working with industry publications, journalists, and influencers to secure coverage for a brand’s products or services. This coverage can take many forms, including product reviews, feature articles, and interviews with key executives.

One of the key benefits of trade PR is that it allows food and drink brands to reach their target audience directly and build long term relationships. By working with industry publications and influencers, brands can ensure that their message is reaching the people who are most likely to be interested in their products or services and build relationships with key stakeholders in their industry.

Shelf space is limited, so relationship building can be particularly valuable when launching new products or entering new markets.

Do we offer content creation services?

Yes, we do! We have an in-house creative team of video, design, and content specialists. They’ve captured Thaikhun’s Restaurants’ new restaurant launch, created animations for Fentimans, and social videos for Primula. So, they have plenty of experience in the food and drink sector.

So whether you need content to capture a new restaurant opening, amplify a PR campaign, or for thought leadership, we can help – all part of our full-service touch.

How can media relations help with relationship building?

One of the primary ways media relations can help with relationship building is by enhancing visibility and brand recognition. When you regularly engage with the media, whether through press releases, interviews, or guest blogging, you increase your chances of getting featured in news articles or TV segments. This exposure can significantly boost your reputation and attract new customers or clients.

Additionally, media relations can help foster trust and credibility. When your brand or organisation is mentioned or featured in reputable media outlets, it adds a layer of legitimacy to your business. People tend to trust information they find in the media, so having positive coverage can go a long way in building trust with your target audience.
