About This Report


Diminishing relevance

The Grocery Wholesaling industry will continue to contract in size as intense competition and rising production costs are driving food manufacturers and supermarkets to cut out the middleman. Current economic pressures are forcing all sides of the grocery supply chain to become more aggressive with their wholesale bypass. As manufacturers and retailers become more involved in the distribution process, demand and revenue will decline.

Grocery wholesalers act as the middlemen between food producers and retailers. They do little to transform products and are intermediaries in merchandise distribution. The products that industry wholesalers sell and distribute include general-line grocery products; establishments do not specialize. Trade usually includes dry groceries, perishable food and non-food products that are found in grocery stores.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
