Disposable gloves will play essential role in reopened economy

Why the Food Service Sector Must Embrace Data-Driven Distribution

If the prediction from a recent Nielsen report that up to 70 percent of groceries in the U.S. will be purchased online by 2023 doesn’t ring alarm bells, the growing presence of Amazon and others in the sector should at least indicate that a sea change is under way.

But for their specialist suppliers, dependent on a limited number of product lines, lack of diversity leaves profit margins dangerously exposed.

Typically, that means a transition from center-of-plate to broadline distribution.
