Our story

Kevin and Jonathan met whilst working for the natural food and beauty manufacturer Lea Nature, a French based producer that only makes products to EcoCert standards. They had such a high ethical focus that they published the names of the farmers harvesting their aloe vera leaves in Mexico and Morocco. Unless the consumer dug deep into the corporate website of the company there was no way to communicate this side of the business. If only the consumers knew!

This was the frustration that prompted the dream that lead to Buyerdock being developed. Kevin and Jonathan knew that if you could give a consumer more information about all the great ethical brands out in the market place, it would force un-ethical manufacturers to change or go out of business.

Buyerdock took shape giving companies the ability to tell their story to the consumer, not just pre-point of sale, but once the product was at the consumers home. As Kevin and Jonathan built Buyerdock, new packaging regulations were being passed and introduced in the EU to help support the development of a Circular Economy, that could be delivered digitally. The Buyerdock team saw an opportunity to support and help businesses (of all sizes) navigate their way through this new regulation and at the same time make it meaningful to the consumer who will ultimately make or break the success of the Circular Economy.

This is Buyerdock and the people who work at Buyerdock, we believe that empowering consumers with the visibility of the supply chain and providing options for disposal once that product has been used, we can create a world that re-uses more than is manufactured and has a future for us all.
