Overview of an Introduction Agreement
What is an Introduction Agreement?
An Introduction Agreement is a contract that offers protection to a business that sources goods from a manufacturer on behalf of a client and is therefore acting as the “middleman” in the deal.
An Introduction Agreement can be between a client and a sourcing company, whereby the sourcing company agrees to source products up to a certain quality and the client is prohibited from contacting the manufacturer directly.
Alternatively, an Introduction Agreement can be between a sourcing company and a manufacturer, whereby the sourcing company requires the manufacturer to supply goods of acceptable quality and prohibits the manufacturer from contacting the client directly.
