6th October 2021, Amsterdam: The world’s largest product discovery and sourcing platform RangeMe has continued its global expansion having launched across the Benelux region today as it branches into continental Europe. This comes off the back of recent launches in the UK and Australia earlier this year. Buyers at retailers will now be able to source over 700.000 products and connect with more than 200.000 suppliers to fill their shopping aisles and online stores with curated products meeting consumer demand. Buyers at health and wellness retailer Holland & Barrett are currently partnering with RangeMe as they seek the latest products for their customer base.
RangeMe first launched in 2014 and is used today by nearly 15.000 retailers in the U.S., including Walmart, Sephora, Walgreens, Petco, 7-Eleven and Albertsons. It has quickly established itself as the industry leader for retail product discovery and sourcing by becoming the world’s largest source of brands and products purchased by buyers in the US.
RangeMe helps retailers and their buying teams scale product sourcing efforts with streamlined submissions, simplified discovery tools, and the industry standard digital sell sheet. RangeMe enables buyers to filter searches to find brands meeting exact sourcing needs, enables seamless connectivity and collaboration with suppliers and provides curated collections to help identify and understand category trends and emerging brands.
“The Benelux region represents a powerful economic area in Europe that has a strong and well organised retail sector. It provides the perfect setting for us to launch RangeMe in Europe. Moreover, like in most countries, there is a significant shift to online and retailers will be keen to stay on top of the latest demands and trends. RangeMe will offer buyers a full spectrum of choice to service this shift to remain competitive and relevant for their customers and beyond said Nicky Jackson, Founder and CEO of RangeMe. “We will pick up the heavy lifting for buyers and present the global product market opportunity in one screen”.
Holland & Barrett, one of the world’s leading health and wellness retailers and the largest in Europe, is an early adopter of RangeMe. “We have grown by virtue of being relevant to our customers over time, around the world. Our customers trust us to offer the widest range of products that meet the highest standards, and we do this day in, day out. Through RangeMe, our buyers will be able to provide products for a wider audience. We want to have the latest products on our shelves quickly and with our sustainability agenda in mind we want to source locally also. Additionally, we will quickly scale our buying operations through the platform by reducing the friction and time to get more products on our shelves” added Marc Estourgie, Managing Director, Holland & Barrett Benelux.
RangeMe also invites suppliers across the region to join the platform for a front-row audience of the biggest retailers in the country and around the world. It is a single place to represent their brand and products to a network of thousands of retail buyers. RangeMe helps suppliers grow their retail relationships with a platform that gives them the tools and insights to manage their products, market their brand, and build awareness.
RangeMe is the global online platform where retailers and suppliers can discover, connect, and grow their business. Suppliers can showcase their range, bring new products to market, increase brand visibility, and grow sales, while buyers use RangeMe to discover new products, search trends, and communicate directly with brands.
John van der Valk, CEO Europe at RangeMe commented: “This is an exciting development for retailers and suppliers across Europe. Retailers now have access to the latest technology to engage with suppliers anywhere seamlessly to drive positive outcomes, faster. Great to have Holland & Barrett adopt RangeMe and it bodes well for our launch and expansion across the Benelux region and further into European markets”.
