Furthermore, Abel & Cole promoted its sales and customer director Hannah Shipton to managing director in October. The grocery delivery service's brand messaging it centred on sustainability, farmers and organic foods.

Abel & Cole has worked with Vizeum, parent-company's media agency, handle some print activity, according to Nielsen.
