Our values

Canela is a team of people dedicated to providing excellent communication campaigns for brands whose products and services we believe in

Present in Barcelona, Lisbon and Madrid and with over sixteen years’ experience, Canela has been among the five Best Agencies to Work for in EMEA in the PRovoke ranking for 6 years running and has received industry awards and recognitions such as Best Communication Agency and Fastest Growing Agency as well as campaign-specific awards.

Canela is organised into three departments: Business to Business, Consumer Technology and Lifestyle. We also offer Digital and Design services.

What really sets us apart

What sets Canela apart from other agencies is the high level of team motivation because we are working for brands whose products and services we believe in. Our clients include game changers such as Swappie, the recycled mobile phone company, Vivid, the investing and banking mobile app, and Smartwatt, who are promoting a more responsible use of the planet’s limited resources.

We put our team members first

We are a company that puts our team members first, and in a sector known for its high rate of turnover, we have an above average employee retention rate. We believe in investing in people and their professional development. Canela team members have been to San Francisco, London and Frankfurt for training and also receive regular customized in-house training sessions.

As an independent owner-managed agency we form part of international networks of like-minded agencies including Brands2Life Global and Convoy with whom we share best practice, training sessions and clients.

We support initiatives that change the world

As a company, we know we have a responsibility to the world and society. That’s why we have #CanelaCares, a Corporate Social Responsibility programme through which we support non-profit initiatives that do their bit to change the world. 

Every six months, Canela team members have the opportunity to make a proposal to apply for funding or pro bono hours for an NGO that is important to them. So far, we have already lent a hand to KUKUBA, Arconatura, Open Arms, PertenSer, CEAR and El Paso City Council to support families affected by the eruption of the volcano on La Palma.

Studio: the latest offer from Canela

Studio offers audio, branding, design, video and web design services to maximise the effectiveness of clients’ communication campaigns from an audiovisual perspective. 

Studio works in an integrated way with all of Canela’s departments, driving the company’s strategy to become an integrated communications agency with a global vision and portfolio.

We are a B Corp

Canela is one of the first PR agencies in Spain and Portugal to receive B Corp certification. This certification means that we form part of a growing community of more than 5.000 organisations worldwide which are putting people, communities and the planet at the heart of their business practices. B Corp certification recognises Canela as a socially responsible agency which complies with the highest standards in terms of social and environmental performance, transparency and corporate responsibility.
