A national full-service marketing agency with deep California roots.

Founded in 2007, we are a collective of strategic and creative makers seeking to support and impact the food system. We are a leading agriculture and food ingredient marketing agency serving commodity boards, mills, processors, nurseries and more. AC&C was created to help cultivate and amplify the stories of California agriculture. We’ve grown from an owner-operated consultancy to a national marketing agency with deep California roots. We are headquartered in the agricultural heartland of Turlock, CA with offices in Los Angeles, Sacramento, CA and Columbus, OH.

We marry our passion for agriculture with proven and nuanced digital marketing and brand-building tactics. Our clients range from permanent tree and row crop farmers to food-ingredient packers to entrepreneurs launching a “hero” food consumer brand.

How does this look? We like to say we’re both a big picture branding partner and a strategic business advisor. Our team provides a rigorous brand positioning and strategy process, the conceptual chops to develop work across multiple touchpoints and creative muscle across communications planning, media management, design and copy. Our clients utilize us as their outsourced marketing department or their partner for big campaigns and brand launches.
