Buyers from Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands, Lithuania and Dubai seek new garden and pet products at event

The latest in the highly successful ‘Meet the International Buyers’ events organised by the Gardenex and PetQuip associations will take place at the Federation’s head office in Brasted, Kent on Wednesday 27 March 2019.


The buyers that have been invited to take part in one-to-one business discussions with British suppliers will be seeking to source a wide range of garden, leisure and pet products.


The garden product buyers include a German mail order/online sales company, a Swedish online store and importer/distributor and a Spanish franchise group of 44 garden centres.  Also from the garden sector will be a Dutch buying organisation that services a retail franchise of 27 garden centres and a retail organisation that supports 120 independent Dutch and Belgian garden centres.


Seeking to source a range of pet products will be a buyer from a leading Lithuanian retail chain of 73 stores that is also an importer/wholesaler supplying over 700 retailers and veterinary practices.  A buyer from a leading pet food and accessories distributor based in Dubai will complete the line-up in the latest event organised by Gardenex and PetQuip.


 To ensure that you don’t miss out on the opportunity to apply for 25 minute one-to-one meetings with any of the buyers on 27 March, or to find out more about future ‘Meet the International Buyers’ events for both the garden and pet sectors, please contact as soon as possible.
