Health Food Distribution
Amcom is different from many other distributing companies because it takes a particular focus on the health food market. They operate under two subsidiary names; Chamberlin’s Market & Café and Akins Natural Foods Market. Through these they control 32,000 different national and regionally based private label products.
They have the rights to products that include high-quality natural, organic and specialty foods. These all fall under a few common categories; produce, baked goods, frozen foods, nutritional supplements, personal care items and general merchandise.
Overall, Amcom is more corporate-influenced in their distribution method in comparison to the list of family owned businesses that flood the top ten list of distributors. As well, without adequate information indicating otherwise, the health food focus of Amcom is a unique niche to focus on that many other distributors have yet to go into due to their focus on timely and easily storable food products. Meaning that this store may not have the variety you are wanting out of a distributor to provide on-sight stands and customer support programs, but that is exchanged for their ability to supply health-food. Therefore, if you are in the right market, this may be the niche that you need help hitting and if so Amcom is the perfect distributor for you.
