[Bolst Global’s work] reflects highly and positively for our brand and has allowed us to increase export sales in under two months […] Hiring Bolst Global as our export department is the best thing we have ever done as a small business to help grow our international opportunities.
…having the Bolst Global team on the ground doing the market research and category analysis was totally the right decision. Their approach was thorough, enthusiastic and extremely helpful in identifying not just target markets but giving us the whole picture in terms of regulatory and other market entry issues to consider and work on. They were extremely professional, accommodating of working to our timelines and time zones and we would not hesitate to recommend Bolst Global as a valuable export resource or to use them in the future.

I had the pleasure of working with the Bolst Global team on a food and drink trade mission to Bratislava, Slovakia. They were a tremendous asset, seamless extension of our trade team at the Chamber of Commerce in Slovakia.

Having worked in and with a broad spectrum of businesses, Victoria and her team has built up a vast amount of knowledge, and the passion and enthusiasm for working with dynamic SMEs really shines through….Friendly, approachable and responsive, whilst still strategic in approach, it’s an exciting time for Neo G as we grow the business in our chosen markets, and we see Victoria and Bolst Global playing a big part in our future expansion.
We contracted Bolst Global to help us exhibit at our first international trade fair – Gulfood, UAE – in 2017 and they did a fantastic job for us. The preparation and objective setting beforehand was thorough and their support, engagement with prospects and general energy on the stand ensured we had a very successful show with a high number of leads. As a direct result we have started new business with customers in Malaysia, China and the Middle East and will definitely be re-exhibiting next year and asking Bolst Global to help us at future events.
It’s been great having Bolst Global on board at Dr Will’s. We are a small team and at our stage didn’t have the resources or expertise to focus on export in-house. Knowing Bolst have the export side of the business covered is a great relief for us and we’re already seeing results after just a few months. They are organised and efficient and keep us updated regularly with their progress. Looking forward to seeing our export business grow over the next few months!
