Three former executives from The Jamie Oliver Group have launched what they classify as the first ever food and drink-focused content and production agency.

Created by co-founders Jonathan Almond (pictured) – previously channel manager for Oliver’s Drinks Tube and formerly with FremantleMedia UK, now serving as creative director – and former brand partnership execs for Oliver, Katie Nelson (commercial director) and Steve Cardwell (strategy director), Delightful Media is designed to be a one-stop shop for food and drink-related content, talent and ideas. The agency’s mandate is to meet massive demand for digital campaigns in the food and drink field from brands and publishers by expediently and efficiently producing relevant content.

“With a smaller, leaner, smarter team we’re able to go from brief to shoot in no time at all, at a fraction of the cost,” said Almond in a statement.

“What’s really exciting is we’re launching an offering that is platform agnostic, and can work on behalf of a multitude of names and brands,” added Nelson. “Every idea is perfectly aligned to what the client needs, from talent suggestions to media placement and creative.”

The agency’s offerings cover off the entire content spectrum, from effective creative ideation to distribution strategies and high quality content production across the full range of formats and platforms. The agency also boasts a boutique roster of food and drink talent, including large-scale social influencers and more traditional professionals.
