Food and Drink PR

Expert Food and Drink PR Agency

There has never been a more exciting time to work in the food and drink sector. Within the hospitality arena, the on-trade is experimenting and blending influences from all over the world to create new concepts which are driving footfall in an increasingly competitive, and challenging, environment. In the contract catering sector the uncertainty around the dominant plcs is leading to new opportunities for forward-thinking and more agile organisations gaining momentum and opportunities that would otherwise be few and far between.

Meanwhile the off-trade is challenged with an increasing price war as the discounters continue to gain ground, mergers and acquisitions see the supermarket landscape changing, and independents continue to face the battle against not only the big five, but also the battle to attract people back to the high street and into their shops. At a time when, due to political uncertainty, the supply chain could see major shifts in the coming few years, manufacturers too face both clear opportunities and challenges.

All this means that we can safely say that the sector is one in which we relish working in. With over 50 years of experience dedicated to the food and drink sector, Refresh PR is a specialist in brand building, profile raising, driving footfall, supporting listings, delivering creative stunts, generating engagement on social media and handling crisis management situations.
