Are you looking for a Specialty Food Distributor?

As a Specialty Food Manufacturer, are you ready for Distributors?

It's better to be prepared.

komida wrote the book for their clients, and hope it helps you become successful as well!

While you're there, check out komida's business software for specialty food manufacturers, if you are a specialty food manufacturer, it could be right for you.

Why are there so few Specialty Food Distributors?


In the past 25 years there has been major consolidation of the distribution industry, led by the two largest specialty food distributors, UNFI and Tree of Life.  Philip H. Howard of Michigan State University has created a beautiful information graphic depicting the trend.  


The graphic is a tiny bit outdated (~2008), but the only major change happened in 2010 when KeHE acquired Tree of Life, and the graphic is well worth looking at.

Here is the list.
