We provide them with comprehensive assistance from the product concept (ingredients and claims) to market launch (labeling, advertising via all media (notably comparative advertising) and distribution contracts).
Our expertise in supplier – distributor relations allows us to provide effective assistance with annual commercial negotiations (single contracts and the Economy Modernization Act). Moreover, we can provide companies with useful advice on pricing and commercialpolicy.
