Farm Harvest: A Distribution Dilemma
In 2017, Farm Harvest Pvt. Ltd., a company that produced and marketed fresh corn and ready-to-eat corn products, was facing distribution problems. The owner and managing director of the company, was worried about the sales of his company's products. During a discussion with his core management team about the non-availability of their products in the market, the owner realized that declining sales could be due to distribution network problems. In order to revamp their distribution network, the team considered pursuing direct distribution rather than going through distributors. The team also had to look at the financial aspects of the direct distribution model versus that of distributors in order to make a decision.
