It’s easy to head to a store and pick up some of your favorite beverages, like wine or soda. While you may not think much of it during your grocery shopping trip, how exactly do they get on the shelf? Those who work in beverage distribution help to make sure that the shelves are fully stocked with exactly what you’re looking for.
In this video, you will learn more about what exactly a beverage distributor does and get a behind-the-scenes sneak peek. A distributor works with both the supplier and wholesale companies to sell beverages and get them into the consumer’s hands.
They also work on taxes, other details, brand development, and more from start to finish.

Beverage distributors also can work with their specific retailers and provide data to help stores know exactly what to carry and what beverages may perform better.
