A boutique agency with BIG ideas

About Us

Crave PR is a boutique public relations and marketing agency with a focus on all things good: Food, Wine, Agriculture, Nutrition, Health, Wellness, Sustainability, and Lifestyle. Crave PR was founded in 2009 and is led by Saskia Brussaard, a savvy business communicator with 20 years of experience in marketing and PR.

We collaborate with a team of senior professionals in Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto, and New York.

Our boutique firm is nimble, responsive and delivers more personalized service, efficiency and results. 

We work on short- and long-term campaigns for brands, consumer products and services, agricultural marketing boards and wineries, not-for-profits, associations, government, and personalities seeking representation.

Media Relations & Strategic Counsel

Crave Public Relations conducts a wide range of public relations programs, events and campaigns to tell the media about your brand's story. 

We work seamlessly with your team. Bring us to the table when you need additional brainpower during strategic communications planning.  Or, hire us for a one-day intensive media coaching session to refine your media interview skills.

Influencer Marketing

Influencers have gained momentum in recent years becoming more  sophisticated, professional and savvy. They continue to prove  themselves indispensable and powerful ambassadors for brands. We have cultivated relationships with tastemakers and influencers (bloggers, chefs, dietitians, talent/personalities) and work with them to develop programs that garner attention and build your brand following. 

Digital & Social Marketing & Advertising

Crave PR develops comprehensive media strategies that combine social, digital and influencer networks to help develop audiences and promote your brand. We also assist with ad buying to boost campaign reach.

Strategic Partnerships & Sponsorships

Crave PR identifies strategic partners, synergies and opportunities to elevate your brand, including participation at festivals, trade shows, events, or with other brands, charitable associations or other organizations.

Content Development

Crave PR develops content (recipes, photography, graphics, video) as part of broader campaigns to tell your story through a variety of traditional, digital and social channels.
