We were served our most mouthwatering opportunity, when McCormick Canada called upon our team to launch their new line of McCormick Recipe Mixes.
Naturally, we jumped at the opportunity by selecting the right ingredients for their launch that included a dash of YouTube videos, a pinch of social media marketing, generous portions of event marketing, and more.

"I’ve had the opportunity to work with AV Communications since 2010 on some of our marketing programs targeting multicultural segments, through our Western Union partners. The agency demonstrates strong understanding of multicultural segments, eagerness to understand our business and recommend fresh creative ideas. Marvi and Anna bring their own solid experience, knowledge and expertise to support marketing programs and it’s always a pleasure working them. There are very few agencies in Canada that have a strategic approach to multicultural marketing and at the same time have solid executional capabilities across various ethnic segments. AV Communications is one of those very rare gems."Rakesh Kirtikar

"AV's deep networks through diverse ethnic media helped ensure that families across our multicultural city heard our message.
While we knew that certain ethno-specific communities would require special outreach, AV's sensitive intelligence gathering on the ground informed our outreach strategy, making sure our targeted marketing had the greatest impact."
