Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

The General Line Grocery Wholesaling industry exhibits moderate barriers to entry. The main costs incurred by new entrants relate to warehousing, storage, and distribution.

In addition, many upstream food product suppliers and downstream supermarkets and grocery stores have long established supply links to source and sell their products. This makes it challenging for new entrants to establish links with some suppliers and larger downstream retail chains. Despite this, low regulatory and licensing requirements for industry activities reduce legal and administrative start-up processes and costs.
