About Cantaloupe


We’re all different; that’s why Cantaloupe is. Putting your requirements first, Cantaloupe provides you with the marketing support that you actually need to achieve your objectives. We fit round pegs into round holes.

Choose a structure that works for you

Cantaloupe can provide you with a capable freelance marketing resource for a project, guidance in strategic planning or an ongoing outsourced marketing service with the necessary marketing skills and specialism in place, only when you need them.

Anna Metcalfe created Cantaloupe Marketing following more than 20 years of both employed and self-employed freelance marketing work. From this highly qualified and experienced core, small to medium-sized businesses can benefit from a flexible, grounded and proficient approach.

“You can always rely on her to do the job well; on time, every time.”

Enjoy a productive partnership

When you choose a marketing company, consider both the capabilities available and the people that you’ll work with. Cantaloupe excels in both; packed with heaps of experience, knowledge and resource whilst really rather friendly and decent to work with.

Tackling most industries, Anna has particular experience in the food industry and more recently, construction timber. Clients, however, have been diverse over the years, including dental practices, insurance brokers and many agencies.

More about Anna


At the heart of Cantaloupe is Anna Metcalfe – that’s me! Eagerly leading the way, I possess more than 20 years marketing management experience; gleaned from a combination of employment and freelance marketing. My core marketing qualifications back this up: a food marketing degree, the Chartered Institute of Marketing Diploma and of course, full membership of the Institute (MCIM).

I’m a practical, down to earth soul and thoroughly enjoy getting on with the task in hand. Guiding you in the right direction where necessary, my many years of experience have covered every corner of the marketing mix – and more besides.

My Linked In profile offers you the opportunity to read many recommendations from happy clients over the years – the longest of which I worked with for just over 15 years.

When not embroiled in my marketing company, you can find me on a hill with my family or perhaps determinedly attempting to improve my dog agility skills – which have a long way to go before they match my marketing ability.

What’s in the name?

I’d love to give you a great, long winded story about why the company is called Cantaloupe. It would surely add something to the sparkle of it all. But the honest answer is always the best one; I like the fruit and the word is nice to say. Try it. I always smile when I hear myself saying it aloud. As you’ll know, the name is actually not that important, it’s how you market the business that counts and hopefully you’ll let me discuss that possibility for your own “Cantaloupe”.
