A New Vision of the Way Retail Works

Bamboo Rose knows that to compete in the New Retail Economy retailers, wholesalers and suppliers need to bridge the gap between the consumer experience of shopping for products and the B2B experience of creating them—a more visual, more dynamic and more collaborative workflow that makes a difference in our customers’ businesses and their employees’ happiness. Bamboo Rose connects more than 150,000 members of the retail community to help them more effectively discover, develop and deliver ideas and products, on trend and on time to diverse markets around the world.

We exist to help our customers stay out ahead of today’s smart, savvy and social consumers and their desire for new products in today’s New Retail Economy. Bamboo Rose leads the way as the only digital marketplace with proven trade engines for retail and supply chain management.
