Speed announces trio of foodservice appointments


Three exciting foodservice companies have appointed the mission™ Agency, Speed, as their retained PR agency – BRITA Professional, the water filtration specialists, Company of Cooks, a London-based hospitality business and Oh My Good Nosh!, a new chilled food brand.

Speed’s dedicated Food & Hospitality team, based in London and Bristol, will deliver engaging and inspiring communication campaigns across national, consumer, trade and regional media. Each Client will be taking advantage of both our traditional media offering as well as evolving multi-channel content approaches:

  • BRITA Professional has been supplying out of home water filtration solutions to the hospitality and corporate sectors for nearly 40 years and is the trusted expert when it comes to water optimisation. It is a sustainability leader and partner of choice for water filtration products.
  • Company of Cooks partners with prestigious venues including the Royal Opera House and the National Portrait Gallery to provide bespoke food and drink, perfectly matched to each location. Company of Cooks offers thoughtful and tailored white label hospitality in restaurants, cafés and bars as well as for events.
  • Oh My Good Nosh! prides itself on having a sound ethical and community conscience. In fact, it’s the first range of British-made ready meals to exclusively use free-range chicken that is free from growth-antibiotics and growth-hormones.

Stakeholders at each business comment on Speed’s appointment:

Rebecca Widdowson, Director of Marketing at BRITA Water Filter Systems, said: “Speed impressed us with its full capability offer – which spans lead generation, a dedicated studio and digital services plus a strong heritage in foodservice. We’re looking forward to the creative campaign taking shape and are excited to share this new approach with the wider hospitality industry over the coming year.”

Mike Lucy, Founder of Company of Cooks, said: “Over the past 21 years, we have built a strong business and a talented team and have forged high-profile partnerships we are very proud of. Now we want to take this further by appointing Speed’s Food & Hospitality team. We believe that their industry knowledge and connections and their appreciation of our business make them the right PR partner to help us enhance our reputation and grow.”

Shazia Saleem, Founder of Oh My Good Nosh!, said: “With lives getting even busier, we know people struggle to find the time to cook food from scratch. Oh My Good Nosh! is designed to fill that gap, providing a convenient and nutritious alternative meal option that is ready in minutes. I’m thrilled to be working with Speed’s Food & Hospitality experts, who are just as passionate about the brand as I am.”

Cat Jennings, Director of Food & Hospitality at Speed, commented: “It’s exciting to announce a hat-trick of fantastic new Clients. We’re delighted to start working with these three fresh and innovative foodservice brands and look forward to finding creative ways to tell their stories, cement market position and help them grow.”
