HOW WE WORK FOR YOU:
Are you a Retailer looking for help with your brands?
Since the business started, we have been supporting UK retailers in bringing to market their own brands or brands they may have licensed. We work closely with them to bring ideas to life and manage the whole process whether FOB, DDP or delivered. All our suppliers meet strict ethical guidelines and offer competitive prices achieved through our extensive market knowledge, the longevity of our relationships and the volumes we do with them. We provide insight into trends, competitor analysis, market conditions and new and complimentary product ideas.
Do you have a Brand or product you want to launch in the UK ?
Do you have a brand or even a product that you want to bring to the UK market we are here to help. It is surprisingly difficult to get retailers to open up new accounts even if they love your brand, and often they will refer you to one of their other suppliers to distribute for you. We have accounts with all the major UK retailers and E-tailers so can help get your product listed. Do you need help finding a good source for your product, protecting the IP, technical and QC services, importing, warehousing, selling, marketing, ecommerce or customer service we can help you in all areas?
