Finn beat two other agencies in a pitch to become the company’s first retained PR agency, reporting to brand PR manager Sam Ward.

Taylors of Harrogate owns Yorkshire Tea, which has struck a partnership with the Tour de France Grand Depart cycling event in Yorkshire, and Taylors Coffee, which is being advertised on TV this year for the first time.

The agency’s brief will focus on supporting trial and awareness objectives across core product lines and NPD, with activity including traditional and online media relations as well as experiential and event support.

Ward said: "This is a year of firsts for our business, so what better way to kick that off than with appointing our first ever consumer agency."
