Business Development for Food and Retail

The food and retail sectors usually involve a lengthy distribution chain from the producer to customer. Various entities play crucial roles in this chain, including distributors, importers, stores, shops, independent retailers, department stores, specialist merchants, supermarkets, online retailers, and more.

To establish your position in the distribution chain, there are several factors to consider, including the nature of your business, your target market and your overall strategy.

For companies aiming to expand their reach, the typical approach is to team up with distributors or importers and leverage their network for product distribution. However, working directly with retailers is also a viable option.

Reexia helps you gets started

As a result of low product awareness or sales records, it can be challenging to find local partners, distributors, or resellers who are willing to trust you. Distributors tend to look for products in demand.

When starting on the retail route, it is necessary to create momentum and gain ground with the best partners.

There are several ways to persuade a potential business partner to work with you:

  • Highlight successes in your home market
  • Emphasise award and accolades
  • Sell or return option
  • Discounts for the initial order

Certainly, it is essential to progress methodically and make the most of opportunities as the arise.

Online retailers can also help in quickly generating sales records to then win over more established market players.
