Manufacturers invest large sums of money into promotions with retailers in order to give more visibility to their brands, acquire or consolidate their market shares. Clearly speaking, manufacturers invest considerable amount with retailers under various operations (promotions, advertising rebates…) in order to finance and push forward their products in-store. It is usually one of the biggest expenses – if not the biggest – that manufacturers undertake and which represent a significant portion of the net invoiced sales turnover.
