Godiva, the luxury Belgian chocolatier, has chosen Kitch Media, a Sussex-based social media and online marketing agency, to deliver its UK social media presence.
Godiva has sites in over 80 countries worldwide. There are currently 11 Godiva sites in the UK; 10 in London, including the Godiva Chocolate Café in Harrods, and one site in Selfridges in Trafford, Manchester.
Godiva said it wanted a social media agency that had experience in the food and hospitality industry to help it establish a reputable social presence in the UK.
Kitch Media has created social media profiles and will manage its UK social networks going forward. Prior to working with Kitch Media, Godiva did not have any UK social media presence. The two companies have already worked together to develop Godiva UK Facebook page and Twitter profile and Kitch Media will deliver the social strategy in line with the core marketing objectives of Godiva.
The social media platforms will allow Godiva to engage with their UK audience ongoing and support the imminent launch of the UK website.
Victoria Leadbitter, brand manager EMEA at Godiva, said: “We are so excited to work with Kitch Media to launch our social media presence in the UK.
“The UK takes a key focus in Godiva’s expansion plans, and we are thrilled to be able to engage and further communicate with our UK customers through these new channels. Kitch Media have been a delight to work with and more than deliver our expectations.”
Natalie Martin, Director of Kitch Media, said: “We are delighted Godiva has chosen Kitch Media to develop their social media to deliver effective engagement with their consumers and enhance their brand awareness in the UK. We are excited to add another F&B client to our portfolio and have enjoyed tasting the Godiva truffles.”
