Richmond & Towers adds a touch of sparkle to Ocean Spray Launch

Ocean Spray Appoints Richmond & Towers

Brand communications agency Richmond & Towers has been appointed by cranberry juice brand Ocean Spray to unveil its brand-new on-the-go cranberry drink, Sparkling Pink – in a bid to crack the fast-growing ‘naturally sparkling’ soft drinks market in the UK. The announcement follows hot off the heels of a string of wins for R&T which has bolstered its food & drink division after recent appointments from Masons of Yorkshire, Rombouts and Lily O’ Brien’s.  R&T’s answer to Ocean Spray’s London-centric brief includes a high-impact print and online media partnership with Time Out London, as well as a targeted consumer media relations programme. All activity will fall under the banner ‘Bubbles with benefits’, designed to encourage 35-54-year-old health & wellness shoppers to discover the new low-calorie sparkling proposition which has the added benefit of vitamin C.

R&T demonstrated a solid understanding of the sector as well as our target consumer

R&T’s CEO Nikki Thomson explains: “We’re delighted to be given the opportunity to work with Ocean Spray and help the brand to launch such an exciting new proposition into the UK market. We have a history of handling successful brand launches, particularly in the wellbeing space, and with this sector well and truly thriving at the moment we’re confident that our campaign will strike a chord with new shoppers and drive rate of sale. We can’t wait to get started!”

Ocean Spray Europe’s Marketing Director, Ken Dolan adds: “We were impressed by Richmond & Towers’ strategic and creative solution to our brief. The ‘naturally sparkling’ soft drinks market is new territory for us, but R&T demonstrated a solid understanding of the sector as well as our target consumer. That said, we’re confident that we’ve picked the right partner with the right know-how and expertise to deliver a hugely successful launch for Ocean Spray Sparkling Pink.”

The account will be handled by R&T’s wellbeing division.

Richmond & Towers adds four new clients to its growing roster

Richmond & Towers has added four new clients to its roster as food and drink continues to be one of the most resilient areas of the global economy during Covid-19.

Pernod Ricard’s Champagne division – Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët – Masons of Yorkshire gin, Erdinger beer and Rombouts coffee have all handed the London-based agency briefs to help them engage with trade and consumer audiences within the UK and beyond.

The additions follow hot on the heels of a string of new wins for R&T in 2019, during which the 100% employee owned business recorded income growth of nearly 10%.

R&T added Pernod Ricard’s international trade and consumer Champagne brief following a three-way competitive pitch process. The agency also handles accounts for other parts of the Pernod Ricard business, including Irish Distillers, Havana Club, and Pernod Ricard Mexico for its House of Tequila portfolio.

Masons of Yorkshire, meanwhile, has recruited R&T for its best in class, results-based drinks experience as the brand embarks on its next stage of growth nationally and internationally.

R&T has also added a PR and social media brief for German beer, Erdinger, to its Marston’s roster, as the brand looks to grow an even bigger foothold within the UK’s pub, bar and restaurant trade. The agency already handles all UK comms for Marston’s stablemate Estrella Damm.

Last but not least, the R&T team will be spearheading an exciting new launch for Rombouts coffee to help the brand recruit a new generation of shoppers, and drive further growth in retail.

Welcoming the new additions to the agency’s roster, R&T CEO Nikki Thomson comments: “We’re thrilled to add these fantastic brands to our roster, which is testament to the ongoing achievements of our dedicated food and drink experts during these challenging times.”
