The rationale for contracting out distribution and the problems associated with distribution in the cool chain are explored. A detailed analysis of how the distributor can meet the rigorous standards required by its customers is given. The article concludes with suggestions to improve distribution through the cool chain, from educating the final consumer through to improvements in the design and packaging of products.
