The landscape for food and beverage businesses is increasingly competitive and the challenge is to differentiate yourself from your competitors. You can do this with location, service and product.
With regards to product, the smaller the distribution, the less interesting for the supplier; the greater the distribution, the less interesting for the customer. Unless, of course, the supplier’s main goal is pure volume of sales, and the customers main goal is having products with broad brand recognition.
