Food, Drink and Retail
We help position our clients at the forefront of the debate on the politics of food

The food, drink and retail sectors have come under increasing global scrutiny in recent years. From their response to public health issues, role in dealing with food security, to efforts to reassure consumers and regulators of their supply chain integrity, effective communication has never been more important. In a saturated market, ensuring that your voice is communicated effectively, whether to business, government, the media or the public is essential.

In response to an ever-changing media and political landscape, PLMR has assembled an experienced team of consultants with expertise in the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) and retail industries. We have extensive knowledge of the issues and challenges that brands face, and are proud to have members of staff who have worked for the opposition Defra team, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Coca-Cola, Warburtons, Burger King, Ferrero and Proctor & Gamble.  Working closely with private companies, social enterprises and trade bodies, our experience has seen us position clients at the forefront of the debate, protecting them in times of crisis, and developing their profile at home and abroad.

Our corporate communications service to organisations is second to none, and PLMR has been involved in providing sensitive and measured support to clients of all sizes, providing them with brand and reputation management, public relations counsel, lobbying strategies, and crisis communications support.  A broad range of clients have seen their reputations and those of their brands and products protected and enhanced through our skills, expertise and knowledge.
