The Food distribution industry has significantly grown during recent years thanks to a heavy capital investment on the companies in this industry.
As part of their growth and divestment strategies, the industry’s big players have acquired large retail centers, such as department stores, supermarkets, superstores, etc.
Moreover, family consumption has grown after a long period of stagnation due to the economic crisis in Spain, resulting in more sales for this industry. On the other hand, franchises have taken the lead among many key players, thanks to the adaptation of local and regional products the consumer wants and needs, as well as freshly made products.
Furthermore, as part of a global expansion strategy, distribution companies are taking their businesses beyond their international borders.
