Product Retrieval

RQA can collect or purchase products on your behalf globally

Our product retrieval service allows you to request that we collect or purchase products from stores anywhere in the world and have them sent wherever you need them. These could be your own products, and/or your competitors’ products. You may be an institute or agency carrying out sensory tests. You may just want a specific product in-hand or a large number of units to carry out consumer trials. If you do regular tests on your products from the retail shelf, RQA will purchase products from stores and send them back to you, or a nominated lab, for testing. RQA will also project manage the retrieval, give regular updates on progress and a summary at the end of the project. Whatever your needs, RQA can help.

When we say global, we really mean global.

RQA have carried out product retrieval services in Europe, the Americas, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and Africa.
