Fresh Bread & Bakery Goods Wholesaling

The staple nature of some Fresh Bread and Bakery Goods Wholesaling industry products in the American pantry has historically protected the industry somewhat from fluctuations in consumer disposable income and the industry has seen growth over the past five years. However, s downstream customers have increasingly consolidated and been able to take advantage of their large-scale operations, wholesale bypass, wherein customers directly establish supply contracts with bread and bakery goods producers, has begun to pose a threat to traditional industry distributors.
