Serving up Happier Mealtimes

Serving up Happier Mealtimes

Healthy, tasty food is something of a passion for us here at Stripe so we’re very proud to have helped launch the Scottish Government’s ‘Happier Mealtimes’ campaign.

It’s all about championing the sourcing and eating of fresh, in-season food which is nutritious, tastes delicious and also has environmental benefits.

We kicked it off with a taste test of delicious samples at a pop-up food kitchen in Edinburgh’s Festival Square.

The four-week campaign offers advice on how to find and use fresh, in-season foods as well as easy to make, tasty recipes from some of Scotland’s leading chefs and food organisations.

The pop-up food kitchen is also on the road to spread the ‘Happier Mealtimes’ message across the country so keep your eyes peeled!

Stripe partners with dram communications to build PA offer

Stripe Communications, the Edinburgh-based strategic PR and communications consultancy, has today announced a strategic partnership with public affairs specialists, dram communications, to offer value add insight, stakeholder and influencer support to clients.

The collaboration between the two agencies comes at a time when many organisations in Scotland need to better understand the changing political landscape and to effectively manage their relationships with decision makers and influencers at all levels of government. It will enable Stripe and dram to fully integrate stakeholder management, policy analysis and CSR with media relations and community engagement, in order to develop the most appropriate communications strategies and programmes for clients across a range of sectors.

Vicki Steel, Joint Managing Director, Stripe said; “Over the past six years, we’ve always sought to evolve our business in line with the changing nature of our clients’ worlds. Forming this enterprise with dram perfectly complements our current offering, and will enable us to provide the strategic political insight and counsel that many of our clients are increasingly seeking. We’re looking forward to working with them and being able to offer all our clients a fully integrated communications service.”

David Ross, Managing Partner, dram communications said: “We have worked closely with the team at Stripe over the last few years and this new partnership is a very natural progression. It enables us to further strengthen our full range of integrated communications services and to provide a one stop shop solution.”

Stripe and dram already work in partnership on a number of clients including John Lewis.
