Consumers are doing more shopping online for direct shipment of goods. Amazon, and Google Shopping are examples of this growing trend, and there is great potential for a similar model in the food supplier industry. Currently, our supply chain is made up of bulk pallet shipping for retail distribution. Including the option of direct to consumer shipping could transform the way our customers shop, especially since we offer a broad portfolio of food products. With such product diversity, our direct shipping could offer a complete solution for consumers that want their food delivered to their doorstep.
