How is it that "Trader" companies have products from big CPG's at lower prices than a legitimate distributor?

Plus, in the case of a Global Condiment company, they are claiming to be out of product for two weeks, yet the product is available off the Wire.

What’s a CPG, and are you referring to Asian Foodservice providers, because they often operate as trading companies.

Less markup, but also less support, rebates, etc.

Better check the dates on some of that stuff from these "trader" companies.
Also, lots of "trader" companies were buying up product (and still are) that distributors were dumping when sales tanked.
Lots of distributors wanted the cash and in many instances, were willing to take the massive margin hit just to put money in the bank.

It's strange times - so expecting some semblance of normalcy with product right now is just living in fantasy land.
