The agency told PRWeek it took the action because it didn't have enough access to the company's main business strategy.
Freeman Christie had handled Q8Oils UK PR for the last three years. 'They were phenomenal people and we have no ill feeling with them, but the company is run thinly and the staff are incredibly busy', said principal Mark McArthur-Christie.
'We developed a lot of strategy but we didn't have the access we needed to the overall business strategy. There was a disjoint between PR and the rest of the business, so it was time for us to move on', he said.
A Q8Oils spokeswoman confirmed that the agency had resigned the account but refused to comment on whether she would look to replace them.
Freeman Christie is based in Gloucestershire. Its clients include Yamaha and the Environment Agency.
