SERVICES

Multiple Services. One Goal.
Grow With The Power of PRESENCE.

Our Broker Services start with the basics: Brand management. Retail services. Distributor relations. Data and analytics. And then we power up. Our authentic, unrivaled focus on natural and organic products and multi-channel penetration take broker representation to the next level, bringing your products along for the ride.

Like with any new adventure, a roadmap provides direction for success. That’s what you get with our Market Ready Services: a comprehensive strategic plan to get your products on the shelf in multiple channels and build your brand.

The powerful metrics you receive with our Reporting Services reveal how your sales stack up in your category. Micro and macro level data and reports change how you see, and market, your products, generating a powerful impact that transforms strategy and drives results.

THE PRESENCE DIFFERENCE

We’ll say it. Size Matters.

And when we say size, we’re not just resting into the old “bigger is better” adage. As a decades-old CPG broker, we know that understanding the impact of size and other factors on your strategy and needs matters more than size alone.

That’s the PRESENCE difference.

When bigger IS better, we have a big PRESENCE.

  • Expertise that covers conventional, specialty and natural trade classes.
  • Vast services, including Broker Services, Market-Ready Services and Reporting Services.
  • An expansive network of connections.
  • A multidivisional structure, allowing for national retail and wholesale coverage for grocery, nutrition and body care brands.
  • 500+ passionate, mission-driven team members. And counting.
  • Over $2 million given to industry causes & initiatives.

When less is more, our big PRESENCE is delivered in a small package.

  • The ONE & ONLY natural, national, independent broker and service provider.
  • A low rep-to-brand ratio, allowing for focused attention as well as frequent communication about your brand, turnover order activity, syndicated data, and retail photos.

Customized. Because we know one size does not fit all in the world of natural and organic products.

  • Personalized assessment, fact gathering, data analysis, and goal creation to target specific growth opportunities.
  • Specially-tailored plans with expertly-selected methods to achieve brand goals using the expansive PRESENCE network and connections.
  • High-touch, custom tech to deliver real-time data and custom reports.

That’s the PRESENCE difference. Are you ready to let our big PRESENCE make a big difference for your brand?

  • 500+ employees & counting!
  • $2 million given to industry causes & initiatives
  • 1 and only natural, national, independent broker and service provider
