The height of sourcing…

Retailers can be the marketeers for products made in cottage and small scale units reaching out to a new set of customers who could not have been serviced otherwise.These customers are in smaller towns and villages and the existingmarketing channels are unable to effectively bridge the supply demand gap.

Here’s a picture tour of a small town called Pilukhwa near Ghaziabad.The pictures will give a new dimension to your understanding of manufacturing processes,logistics,Over the counter display and sales.It’s quite interesting.
