We’re rockstars in

360° branding for food & Green

We are a people-driven agency with a strong focus on creating original and creative foundations for brands in food and green. With years of experience and knowledge in (inter)national retail, we create brands that stand out from the crowd, connect with your customer and are result-driven. We understand the difference between communicating ‘B to B’ and ‘B to C’, but in the end they are all people…

ok… let’s start with

your brand strategy

Your brand is not only your product, your logo, your website, or your name. Your brand is much more than that – it’s the stuff in between that connects all these elements together and makes it something strong.

We deliver smart brand strategies rooted in your business and market insights; focussed on your marketing goals while staying true to your target audience, and the competitive environment you’re in.

We developed our own special HLO-BRAND system to deliver to you your clever communication strategy. Based on a visual brand card system, which is based on brand values; you can find out your true brand purpose and create capacity within the organisation. From there on we’ll develop a 360° marketing plan to launch and activate your brand.

digital storytellers

get in touch with the right audience

Yes! We make your brand story come alive by creating social content like videos, animations, designs, photography, illustrations, copywriting… But it’s not just creating cost effective content. We start with your digital strategy, implement campaigns and gather data from them. Because in the end you want to get in touch with the right audience, not just ‘any’ audience.

We do what we say and say what we do, always respectful to people. Our positive ‘get it done’ nature is the base in the way we approach questions, challenges and connections.


We are encouraged to think differently: Continuously challenging ourselves and those around us and we constantly innovate to enhance our products and processes.


We do what we say and say what we do: we respect people and the planet: we don’t just talk about quality and transparency, we live it! You need it fast, we run with you… we’re not afraid of challenging deadlines.


We are hands on, pragmatic and flexible, we take the initiative and make things happen. In our world things just move fast. We have a sensitivity for trends and the direction the market is going and act accordingly.

Our latest work!

We are a diverse bunch of PEOPLE


Diversity is what makes us unique and challenges us to go beyond. What unites us is our beating HLO heart, which maintains an upbeat rhythm. We all want to keep growing, we are never too old to learn and we push each other to get the best results out of ourselves as well as the team. Some of our patchwork of talents you can meet in our office in The Netherlands, some are traveling the globe or living abroad. This creates a very flexible environment focussed on solutions that fit the culture.
