About Us

Founded in 1985, the company has grown from a small family run fieldwork agency into a full service market research agency capable of undertaking projects throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and the U.S.

We are proud to say that most of our growth has come from continuing work with existing clients as a result of building long term relationships with some of the biggest international FMCG manufacturers. We have formed a large portfolio and cater to a variety of clients, providing a bespoke experience with each project that we have been presented with. For examples of our clients please visit Our Clients section.

With the head office located in Newcastle upon Tyne we manage an extensive national field-force of regional supervisors and interviewers, who are trained to comply with MRS standards to ensure precision and high quality work to meet the needs of our clients. The team comprises of dynamic market research professionals, who know how to deliver meaningful and actionable answers to clients’ questions on consumer needs, attitudes and behaviours. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of numerous product or services developments, which have driven our clients’ business forward.

Since our inception we consistently reinforce our commitment to quality, we are full members of the Market Research Society and are ISO9001 accredited.
