Looking for help with Indian market entry

Question

I am a British exporter of printing media, the material is either obsolete, indent clearance or rejection however it’s palletised and in original wrappers.

I am ideally looking to appoint a trusted local partner, distributor or even a customer who is close to the Indian market.

Can anyone signpost me or connect me with services, business support organisations, contacts etc to help me achieve Indian market entry?

Thank you.

Hi Richard
I have exported to India stationery, craft, hobby, and art materials in the past. I could help out but I would need more information.
What is the actual product ? Printing paper ? What grammage, size,packaging etc. I could then get in touch with some contacts to see what demand there might be. Is it on-going business ? You can contact me at gilio@exportadvisory.com
On the other hand when you ask about business support organisations then
UKTI can help you, including carrying out research for you to find specific buyers through their offices in India. They also have local International Trade Advisors in Leicester to talk to.
