HP Foods consolidates £7.5m media account into Vizeum

LONDON - HP Foods has consolidated its £7.5m media buying and planning account into Vizeum after the agency beat two undisclosed agencies to land the business.

Previously, HP worked with Brand Connection for media planning and Carat for buying. HP Foods brands include HP Sauces, Lea & Perrins sauces and the Amoy range of food products. Last year, it appointed Beattie McGuinness Bungay to its advertising account after parting company with Mustoes.

Graham White, HP Sauces' marketing director, UK & Ireland, said: "After detailed analysis we're delighted to go forward with Vizeum as our media agency partner. Its people, thinking and passion for our business are in harmony with our objectives for growth and innovation."

Last summer, Heinz bought the HP Foods business from Danone for $855m (£470m).
