Some of the feedback we’ve received from our wonderful clients

We engaged HRA Global to look at opportunities for Victorian food and drink exporters post-Brexit. The report they delivered was incredibly comprehensive, providing us with rich insights and actionable recommendations for exporters. Their specialist knowledge, expertise and connections are evident, making them a valuable resource for food, drink and beauty exporters looking to enter the UK.

Katie van den Bos, Assistant Trade and Investment Manager, Victorian Government Trade and Investment Office

HRA provided us with some really insightful feedback from consumers on our NPD concepts. With the research due to take place in retail stores just as lockdown began, HRA were flexible and agile with their approach and worked quickly and efficiently to get us the answers we needed at the time we needed them. Their debrief was accurate, concise and to the point and gave us some really actionable recommendations to work on rather than just a mass of information. The products and concepts from the research are now on sale all over the UK.

This is excellent. Lots of great content, engaging and interesting.  Couple of media stars in the making…

Maria Hellyer, Consumer, F&B UK & Ireland. Sector Lead Europe, New Zealand Trade & Enterprise

Delighted with the recent research project undertaken by HRA. They took on a brief at short notice, listened well, challenged intelligently regarding the methodology and shaped the project which was then executed and delivered on time.  They provided an excellent debrief and actionable insights and were a pleasure to work with.

Fiona Esom, Executive Director, Product Chain Ltd

Working with the team at HRA was a delight! Communications were easy and efficient with regular updates given along the way. The panel set up was well organised with a collaborative way of working to allow us both to get the most out of it. The level of detail provided in the results and how they were presented back was great and easy to understand. I am also excited that they are on their B-Corp certification journey and would work with the team again!

Hamish’s industry knowledge was critical in bringing this innovation to market. Hamish immediately identified the value within the product offering and tenaciously brought about its implementation. Supported by Hamish’s contacts and driven by his enthusiasm, I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again.

Hamish recently undertook some work for us where we required an independent expert’s view. He clearly understood the brief and provided a great review of the brand concerned. His ability to summarise, what appeared to be very complex to those actively involved, was excellent.

I worked with Hamish on a recent successful breakthrough packaging project. His energy & vision create a great platform for ideas & innovation, always with a clear focus and understanding of the main consumer, market and business objectives.

Hamish recently chaired “Dairy NPD 2012” for me. As a Conference Producer who works with many chairman on many different subjects, I felt that Hamish did an excellent job for us. He was knowledgeable, engaging and enabled the attendees to partake in question sessions more readily. I feel that Hamish effected the quality of the experience attendees had here and would recommend him happily to others.
