Distributor Profiles overview


         There are hundreds of distributors throughout the island of Ireland
         and this directory features a sample of these.  The distribution sector
         is characterised by distributors who operate at a national level, those
         who operate at a regional level and smaller operators who distribute
         in local towns and counties.  These latter smaller distributors are best
         researched at local level by talking with store owners and managers to
         seek their advice and contact details for this group.  Choosing the right
         distributor to match the requirements of your business is a crucial step
         and there are some simple rules that apply.


         •   First sit down and decide what is it that you are looking for e.g. 26
             county or 32 county distribution
         •   Talk with at least 3 distributors before making a choice

         •   Ensure that you rate all 3 against criteria that you have set out e.g.
             payment terms, services provided, etc
