Case Studies and Testimonials

What Our Customers Say About Us – Really Matters to Us!

When I first started using The Sourcing Team I immediately found the entire team I came into contact with was so knowledgeable and warm that it made me want to continue utilising their services as we grow our business.  They always seem to have great ideas and nothing is too much trouble in terms of investigation, sourcing the right goods and bringing our visions to life in the best way possible, to fit budget and timelines.  I would highly recommend The Sourcing Team to any business and utilise the passion, respect, experience and knowledge this company has to offer! Director – Gibbs Hybrid

Love my pink parcel!! – My PA has never been so pleased!

epsom and st helier

Just to let you know that our order of pens arrived today.  Thank you for such a speedy turnaround – a great service overall



Thank you Becky for your hard work last year.  We put a lot of last minute requests and had a lot of back and forth with you both where our spec kept on changing but you both always came back with potential resolutions and didn’t give up until we were happy with the end result.  Thanks for your efforts you have truly gone above and beyond at times, we appreciate it and look forwards to another busy year!



They were very reliable and were able to get the costs down to meet our budget. They really tried hard to get what we wanted. When I tried to find an alternative source when we weren’t sure if it could be done within budget, not one supplier could deliver this project  – The Sourcing Team were the only ones who made the effort and it is a huge credit to the company.



It is such a delight to be working with The Sourcing Team; they are so incredibly helpful and work tirelessly to source products of the highest quality from ethical and sustainable sources. I don’t know where we would be without them. Their professionalism is second to none; they make everything so much easier, it really is like being part of one big family working towards the same goal!


poppy scotland

We did (inevitably) have the odd issue to deal with but you both made sure that you kept us informed at all times which in turn allowed us to plan properly & schedule the Factory work as required – something which is critical for us as the Factory employs disabled ex-service men. You delivered the product when you said you would & it is (mostly) ready to send straight out to our Poppy Appeal volunteers to begin the process whereby we make sure that poppies & tins are available throughout Scotland in time for Remembrance. Thank you.



Over the past twelve months, Bloodwise has consolidated a great deal of its merchandising requirements and has chosen The Sourcing Team as a principal business partner. Along with cost savings and efficiencies we also have greater control over management of our brand identity. And the team are always a pleasure to work with. We value their expertise, enthusiasm and their commitment to delivering ethical products.



It is of the highest importance to us to be completely confident about the ethical credentials of merchandise for Amnesty campaigns. Naturally we also need suppliers who are responsive and cost effective and we always keep our lists under review. We’ve been working with The Sourcing Team for many years, trusting them to deliver some of our key campaigning purchases.



We have been using The Sourcing Team for several years now. They are always polite and helpful from the initial quoting stages through to product selection and delivery. Their communication is great, which is definitely a selling point to us. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for promotional products.
