Buying Groups

Partnering for Growth

Dot works closely with all the major buying groups in the food industry.

Dot is a strong supporter of groups. We feel groups help distributors increase sales and expand marketing capabilities, especially by:

  • Combining the purchasing power of individual distributors to negotiate better prices from manufacturers.
  • Negotiating national marketing programs with manufacturers.
  • Marketing a group label to create brand loyalty.
  • Providing training and professional development on industry and business topics.

Dot offers groups several advantages:

EDI

Dot's advanced technologies allow seamless reporting so manufacturers can pay groups, and so groups can reconcile manufacturer payments and track distributor sales. Dot's reporting allows accurate recording and transfer of license fees and payments.

GROUP SHOWS

Dot enthusiastically attends all group food shows. Our participation gives us great opportunities to meet with our distributor customers and discuss our 500 product lines.

GROUP LABELS

Dot carries group private labels to have access to more lines that we can offer our customers, and as a service of good faith.

STRATEGIC PLANNING

As the industry continues to grow in importance, Dot helps groups develop a redistribution strategy that maximizes profits and supply chain efficiencies.
