We have expertise is bespoke marketing and communications for the bioeconomy sector. We work with bio-based businesses and on external projects to increase awareness of their products or processes to key stakeholders. This could be developing a communications strategy, writing content for a brochure or a website to offering social media recommendations.
We are the work package leader and communication and dissemination partner for AgriLoop. An international collaboration between 35 European and Chinese partners to push the frontier of circular agriculture by converting residues into novel economic, social and environmental opportunities for the food and farming sectors. As the UK is no longer part of the EU we have accessed the UKRI Guarantee Scheme for this project.
We are also the communication and dissemination partner for EU-funded projects. Agrimax was a five-year project with 29 partners (completed in 2021) which built two ground-breaking pilot plant facilities in Spain and Italy. The project successfully demonstrated how unavoidable crop and food-processing waste can be turned into multiple, high-value bio-based products for the food-ingredients, food-packaging and farming sectors.
Types of communication activities we work on include;
- Developing key messages, identifying key audiences and channels for communication
- Producing an animation
- Writing and disseminating press releases as well as media liaison
- Advising on social media platforms as well as running accounts
- Producing and editing short video content
- Developing printed materials including display items for exhibitions
