With the sector thriving throughout 2020 and 2021, both businesses are ripe for growth with the opportunity to offer consumers something different when it comes to food experience and flavour.
Founded by CEO, Jyoti Patel, both businesses aim to educate people in the UK on the power of authentic ingredients and produce from other continents. Starting with Red Rickshaw in 2017 by making high quality, fresh ingredients from all over the globe easily accessible via an online grocer. Shortly followed by sister company Feast Box in 2020, evolving the journey to show people how to use those ingredients via a recipe box with weeknight step-by-step guides so consumers are able to enjoy a quality home dining experience, full of new flavours.
The PHA Group will take an integrated approach to the account, servicing a consumer, corporate and influencer brief to raise mass awareness and reputation amongst consumers as the businesses continue to thrive. Both London and Manchester teams will play a vital role in the communication strategy, supporting the brands through a strategic multi-layered press office, strategic influencer partnerships and the implementation of creative campaigns to bring the company visions to life, as both businesses continue to show rapid growth and disrupt the market.
Speaking about the appointment, Jyoti Patel, CEO and Founder of Red Rickshaw and Feast Box, said:
“The PHA Group demonstrated a strong understanding of both brands, as well as the wider recipe box and world ingredient industry. We have no doubt they will help increase awareness of the brands amongst consumers and help us communicate what we do to a wider audience, in what is a rapidly growing industry. As Red Rickshaw and Feast Box embark on an ambitious period with new hires, social and content support and exciting brand partnerships, we look forward to PR and media communications contributing to our huge growth over the coming months.”
