Your brands into mums’ hands - Blackcurrant Babies is a sampling and distribution media agency, working with selected partners providing a network of mums open to sampling and providing feedback. From brand-to-hand product sampling and parental product engagement, sponsorship opportunities, through to bespoke targeted marketing solutions. We work with National chains and Privately-run mother-and-baby networks, with extended reach into nurseries, playgroups, leisure centres throughout the UK. Let us raise awareness for your brand by giving children and parents the opportunity to interact directly with your brand: see it, touch it, feel it, play with it; or via bespoke campaigns, targeted sampling and focused feedback. Mums discuss it, try it, and very often report back again at the next meeting! We engage your brand with a highly captive and targeted audience by putting your brands into mums’ hands so that they can choose to put it on that week’s shopping list!

We started Montezuma's, our little chocolate business, in 2000 with only a kitchen sink sized machine, huge enthusiasm, spades of naivety and most importantly, a broad ideal to bring chocolate innovation to a boring and staid British chocolate market. With the exception of that first machine, little has changed and the childish enthusiasm we shared exploring South America in 1999 largely wakes up with us every morning; although we now have three little girls who rise before dawn every day!
Being lawyers turned self-taught chocolate makers has meant steep learning curves and often re-inventing the wheel but everything we do is carried out with a passion for creating chocolate we want to eat in an environment we enjoy. What we certainly didn't train for or expect in our wildest dreams was that a business started on a shoestring would become arguably Britain's most innovative chocolate brand with a reputation far bigger than our actual footprint”. – Helen Pattinson, Co-Founder.
