McCormick & Co. consolidates global media under Dentsu X

The company has continued to increase its global marketing spend. McCormick spent $182.6 million on advertising in 2021, a bump from $174.8 million in 2020 and $150.8 million in 2019, according to its annual filings.

“When it comes to delivering innovative thinking to fuel our media-driven marketing approach, Dentsu X has proven tools and expertise to help us build deeper connections between consumers and our brands. We look forward to growing our relationship with the Dentsu X team globally,” Melanie Sifuentes, VP of global marketing strategy and media at McCormick, said in a statement.

One point of emphasis for McCormick, which acquired Cholula in 2020, will be expanding its presence in the hot sauce space, according to Meranus. 

“So in the U.S. for example, Frank’s is super big for American football. We drive tailgate season throughout the year all the way through Super Bowl. It’s a hot time of the year, no pun intended, but how does that translate in other markets where the NFL is not necessarily the moment?” she said.

Despite inflation and supply chain issues, and the company’s exit from India and Russia, McCormick reported that constant currency sales grew 6% in the third quarter of 2022.

Dentsu also recently picked up media duties for Heineken, JCPenney and The Aspen Group.
