About Mango

Mango was established by Lesley Allen and Alison Baber in 2005, each having over 20 years in the promotional merchandise sector. Previous experience within agencies and client-side has given us a real understanding of and valuable insights into the constraints and pressures that our clients work under.

We are a small company with both partners actively involved in the day to day handling of our client’s business – who you see is what you get!


We are not simply a business gift supplier of widgets and off-shelf items from a catalogue. Yes, of course we can do that but we can also develop bespoke merchandise and display items tailor-made to your brand, your brief and your budget.

The items we supply are dictated by our client’s requirements – not the other way around.


We have worldwide experience in sourcing - particularly from Asia, Europe and UK. This means that we can tailor the region of supply to your budget, time-line and quantity requirements.

Technical knowledge has given us an understanding of what can and can’t be achieved within a budget and the best areas of supply for that particular item.

Be it t-shirts from Turkey, party hats from China or leather from India, we get to the solution quicker.


We do not charge management fees or employ agents on margins. Instead we go direct to the factory to guarantee you the best price.


All new Asian factories are audited to ensure that they meet international standards. Wherever necessary, products are tested to ensure that they conform to appropriate BS and EN safety requirements.

Consignments shipped out of Asia are randomly inspected in order that quality is maintained.

Delivery and freight logistics

There is no point coming up with a great creative piece of merchandise at a competitive price if you simply can’t deliver on time. We maintain close links with our factories and a long-term relationship with our freight and transport agents ensures that we are kept up to date with all our shipments at all times.

Detailed planning ensures that all our shipments are put on the fastest and most economical routes whilst documentation and customs requirements are dealt with right at the start of a project so that there are no nasty surprises or delays when goods arrive at their destination.

Graphics and design

As part of our product offering we can provide creative design and artwork –saving you time and money.


We keep our clients updated on all aspects of a job – whether the news is good or bad!
