The Portland Group Profile

Portland Product is about tradition and progression, combining an honourable 100-year, family-orientated trading heritage with a British spirit of innovation, focused on shaping the future success of brands and products across the world.

We are a well-connected, highly respected, influential business development group. Through principled entrepreneurship and precise focus, we help to:

  • Grow brands and brand loyalty at local level
  • Create volume and value leadership
  • Develop long-term customer engagement
  • Connect buyers and sellers in emerging and peaking markets

We create enabling networks, offering end-to-end, one-stop, short trader consultancy, operating successfully in the markets you need access to, presence in and profit from.

Our portfolio spans the health and beauty, food and beverage, household and hardware sectors; a broad commodities trading base and a thriving property development business.

Excellent marketplace execution for your brands begins with efficient distribution and availability. It has to be on a shelf, not still on a lorry.

We manage distribution, import, fulfillment, tracking and reporting worldwide and cost-effective, sustainable results are achieved through a world-class logistics infrastructure - integrating processes, people and systems. We invest in the best people and processes - and constantly strive for business improvement and to find the fastest routes to market.

In-country teams in key geographies efficiently screen and assess target markets by category, country and through demographic, trade and economic statistics. We analyse local market conditions, practices, competitors and any potential domestic production; identify key end-user sectors and channels of distribution and identify smaller but fast-emerging markets that may provide ground-floor opportunities. If we know, we make sure you know.

We have the knowledge, resources and contacts to help grow your brand profitably, shape your market and set new trends. We focus on your individual brand and product needs, build long-term personal relationships and work collaboratively to ensure the development of the most effective business solutions.

Portland's success is demonstrated by the speed with which we bring brands to market and the interest consumers have shown in trying new brand offerings - fuelled by customer insight marketing and creative, engaging merchandising. We strengthen the positioning, profile and shelf presence of your brands with high-profile media advertising combined with in- store promotional strategies that are relevant to consumers' tastes, attitudes, pockets and purchasing patterns.

Post-launch product support for store management teams is delivered by our sales associates, overseeing promotional point-of-sale activities 'on the ground' and delivering on-going product training.
