Back to our activities

Distribution Law

Distribution consists of a chain of economic players where each plays a specific role, from the production, manufacturing and importation to the end consumer, relying on intermediaries and logistics teams.
Each player, at every step of the value chain, will seek to generate a maximum profit margin, causing abuse--whether voluntary or not.
