Abstract

This case study discusses the distribution strategy of the Bonduelle Group and the ability to and value of becoming a retail brand for the world's leading producer and supplier of ready-to-eat processed vegetables. In 2010, the family business opened its first flagship store named ‘Bonduelle Bienvenue'. It was entirely dedicated to processed vegetables and offering a big range in the same selling space. The objective of this prototype was not to substitute the company's existing distribution network, or even to hinder it, but to complement it by providing brand visibility and enabling an increase in Bonduelle Group's market share within households. Introducing the reader to the company, the first steps of the concept store back in 2012, and the following other D2C initiatives of the group, this case aims to address the advantages and drawbacks for a food processing brand to engage in selling directly to end consumers.
