“It is often difficult for manufacturers to align their entire organization around redistribution. With varying points of view from Sales, Marketing, Supply Chain, Customer Service, and Finance, the redistribution program can become an afterthought or source of friction within the organization,” said Dave DeWalt. “My book discusses how it doesn’t have to be that way. For more than 15 years, we’ve been working with manufacturers and redistributors to put together strategies and programs that work for everyone. The success of Understanding Foodservice Redistribution is attributed to this experience.”
