Brampton firm The Food Marketing Experts is living up to its name by racking up two more food industry awards - just as it marks its 10th year in business.

The food and drinks marketing agency has grown from being a home-based start-up to having a client base of local, national and international customers.

Managing director and founder Vhari Russell said: “I started The Food Marketing Experts ten years ago with three children in tow, working from home.

“I began with a passion to share the knowledge that I had gained from various jobs in the food and drink industry with other businesses to help them flourish and grow. This is the same motive that continues to drive me today.”

She said: “The agency has grown beyond my wildest dreams - we now have a great team with clients located all over the world.”
