After a pitch involving the major holding companies, The J.M. Smucker Company has chosen Publicis Groupe to manage their creative, data, media and technology business, starting 1st January 2019.

As a 120-year-old, family-run business, Smucker’s has a strong culture and vision for the future. Their ask from the beginning of the pitch was simple but bold: they wanted a true partner with an innovative model to enable an ambitious brand transformation.

To earn the business, our global team brought together talent from many parts of the Groupe to create a single team with a unified voice, strategy and vision – all under one roof, through a bespoke agency.

“Smucker’s is going through an incredible journey and we are proud to partner with them to accelerate their transformation and impact with a Publicis Groupe end-to-end Power of One solution spanning creative, media and business transformation – all with data and insights at the core,” said Arthur Sadoun, Chairman & CEO of Publicis Groupe.
