Having the credibility and recognition that our work is truly independent is vital to our success.  Being seen as a data firm that can be relied upon to take a neutral stance and provide pragmatic opinion and detailed understanding is one of our strongest attributes.

As a hugely influential and globally renowned body, the Chartered institute ofCIPS_White_WEB Procurement and Supply (CIPS) is dedicated to  promoting and developing high standards of professional skill, ability and integrity among all those engaged in procurement. Mintec is proud to be a strategic partner with CIPS and the sole knowledge provider for raw materials and commodities.

High-quality, robust and honest data is critical to the effectiveness of good procurement practice and for anyone working at any level in business.
Understanding the risks attached to commodities and raw materials can influence forecasting in business and the strength of supply chains in coming months and years as key to securing essential supplies.
I’m pleased that we have such a high-profile partner on board to strengthen our knowledge and support for our members.”
