Seasoned PR & Design

Salt & Pepper PR specialises in innovative, effective public relations, coaching, branding and design. No spin or smoke – just real results for lifestyle brands, including food and drink, tourism, health and wellness and beauty.

We can launch new products with a bang, build a buzz around a restaurant or hotel opening, help healthcare organisations connect with valuable stakeholders, and develop long-term creative strategies that ensure maximum media coverage, sell product, increase distribution and win market share. Our experience and results are unparalleled.

Salt & Pepper PR is led by two directors, Jen Bell and Nick Bell, who share almost 30 years of public relations, direct marketing, branding, research, and advertising experience between them. Nick has held senior positions at Colenso and FCB, leading award-winning campaigns for ANZ, Air New Zealand, Watties and Spark. Jen was previously at Porter Novelli and then spent time at New Zealand Trade & Enterprise, helping a vast number of Kiwi companies with food and drink, not-for-profit, travel and tourism, healthcare and general lifestyle PR.

We create campaigns that deliver results

There is so much choice now. Every day, a new product hits the supermarket shelf, or a restaurant or hotel opens its doors. Brands need to make an extra effort to stand out from the crowd.

We can tailor fully integrated public relations campaigns that create positive publicity for brands, venues and products on an ongoing basis. We will work with you on the strategy, using a range of tools – from social media, to traditional media relations, to press conferences, and even a big splash event or marketing stunt if appropriate.

We are completely flexible, so whether you want a six, nine, or 12-month campaign – or just need one day of our time – we can offer you a package to meet your needs.
