Tradegood’s global buyer member METRO (MGB) is a well-known wholesale and retail supermarket group ranking as Germany's largest, Europe's second, and third in the world with branches in 32 countries. In order to find suitable suppliers for MGB’s requirements, the Tradegood Buyer Analysis Center released MGB’ssourcing requests, including ladies’ knitwear,through the Tradegood platform on January 4, 2013. Although Fadalai had no experience with this buyer before, the factory ownerMr.Luoandthe business manager Ms.Peng were both very proactive in responding to the inquiry and impressed the buyer with their solid experience and factory production capacity. MGB attended a matching meeting in Dalangon January 7, 2013 and were very interested in the children’s clothing produced by Fadalai. Since then the two sides have remained in constant contact and have begun a series of procedures,including developing and proofing. In May, the MGB buyer in Hong Kong took Fadalai samples to the German headquarters, afterwards approvingthe sample and arranging a factory visit with Fadalai. Fadalai was later added to the MGB Group supplier database and has nowentered the trial-orderstage.
