CHICAGO, IL, October 02, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As small communications agencies use big mergers as a catalyst to stand out amongst the crowd, Foodmix Marketing Communications is no exception, proving that the little fish can indeed survive and thrive in a big pond. The Chicago based strategic marketing firm for top brands in the food industry has proven itself a leader in its category despite a stagnant economic environment impacting both the food and advertising industries. Experiencing an upswing in growth throughout 2013, the firm has been recognized several times throughout the year for demonstrating creative excellence and putting brands everywhere they need to be. ---
Providing a wealth of marketing, communications and advertising services, Foodmix boasts specialization in both B2B and B2C categories, combining research, brand strategy, communications and sales support programs to help clients build their brands and keep products within arm's reach of consumers. This year the firm's creative talents earned the brand a ranking on the Inc. 500I5000, five Gold Awards at the 42nd annual Creativity International Awards, a Telly Award and an Honorable Mention Award at the 43rd Creativity International Awards.
"We've been able to rise above the anecdote that the small guy won't get noticed in the big crowd," Dan O'Connell, CEO of Foodmix, said. "Big brands find advantages in working with small agencies, and clients such as Coke, Tyson and Farmland have allowed us to demonstrate that through our team's creative talents."
