Beanstalk has appointed Maurizio Distefano Licensing to expand its slew of Diageo brands, including the likes of Baileys and Guinness across Italy.
The partnership has been established, based on a shared philosophy between MDL and Beanstalk that a successful licensing programme requires a “strategic approach consistent with a brand’s unique positioning.”
MDL will be leveraging its specific knowledge of the Italian market to grow the Diageo brands on behalf of Beanstalk.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Beanstalk and look forward to growing the licensing footprint for Baileys and Guinness in the Italian market,” said Maurizio Distefano, president of Maurizio Distefano Licensing.
“Strategic brand extension through licensed products is among the most authentic and credible forms of communication, opening up further opportunities for consumers to experience the brand in fresh and attractive ways.
“In particular, Baileys and Guinness offer multiple possibilities to create products suitable for the Italian market in categories such as food & beverage, apparel, and gift & novelties.”
