Sweet Taste of Success for Sodexo’s RBGE catering

Throughout the summer, visitors to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh have been treated to a variety of floral inspired ice creams thanks to Sodexo, its exclusive catering partner.

The rose, jasmine and lavender flavours were inspired by the Garden and have served up a true taste of summer.

In partnership with Mackie’s of Scotland, Sodexo reaffirmed its commitment to sourcing local produce, showcasing the best of what Scotland has to offer.

To earn such a sweet treat, Holyrood PR brought the story to life and in doing so, brought big ticket media outlets to our client’s doorstep

Highlights Include:

  • Online coverage by national broadcaster, STV
  • Front page coverage in the all-important local newspaper, Edinburgh Evening News
  • Covered in The Press and Journal, a regional newspaper with a circulation of over 60,00
  • Appearance in The Scotsman’s Food and Drink Section
  • Online coverage from Deadline News

This was not just a tasty bit of coverage for our client Sodexo Prestige Venue & Events, but also for the Royal Botanical Garden Edinburgh and Mackie’s of Scotland – all of whom shared the pictures and story extensively on social media.

Coverage was also achieved on a wide range of trusted business websites, such as Daily Business Group, Scottish Business News Network and Marketing Edinburgh.
