Product Sampling Staff
We supply industry leading product sampling staff.
Our sampling staff are experts in the preparation and distribution of pre-packaged, fresh, hot, cold, frozen, cooked and ambient food products.
All our product sampling staff hold Food Hygiene Level 2 certification as a minimum requirement ensuring optimum food handling standards. Our team members are iMP staff – we never outsource – and they’re professional, consumer and client facing. We’ve got plenty of 5* Google reviews to show for it. From premium energy drinks to new snack bars, cereals to celebrity perfumes, ice cream to microwave sausages, we estimate we’ve sampled more than 5.5 million products to consumers since 2008.

Where Can We Sample?
We’re always researching, booking and managing product sampling sites and applying for sampling permits. We take the time out of dealing with the application forms, health and safety, RAMS docs, site access and exit – all that time consuming detail required to deliver an effective activation. We know all the best sites across the country and we also know which of them require permits and which of them don’t. Here’s some examples of the kinds of sampling sites we use and deal with:
- city centres
- train stations & tube stations
- in-store supermarkets
- office sampling
- shopping centres
- sporting events and stadiums
- festivals and theme parks
Product sampling logistics can be tricky. That’s where we take the hassle and time out of the campaign planning. We find, research and book the best spaces to sample ensuring our ‘brand to hand’ mantra is delivered. We have the infrastructure, storage and staff to execute pretty much any kind of sampling activation. From sampling vehicles and sampling pods to sampling bin hire we’re equipped and ready to go when you are. We have more than 9000 sqft of workshops, storage and warehousing on site and studios make us a genuinely in-house agency.
