A bit about MRM Global

At MRM Global we drive customised marketing that brings brands to life.  Getting this right is good for brands – and better for the environment.  We believe sustainability should be part of the success of any marketing campaign.

So, we’re shaking up the way global drinks brands create visibility.  Our mission – to make it easier, faster and greener with customised, on-demand and brand-compliant marketing – has never been more important.

 Our Brand Creator software lets major drinks brands and wholesalers create marketing materials that combine the power of their global brand with customised, locally relevant messaging.
