I've got a question about structuring a production company with a vision of supplying directly to various large retailers. Due to retailer constraints though I'd like to know whether it would be in my best interest to open a new company to deal with each large retailer for purposes of maintaining autonomous contract mandates & seperate cashflow (ie: If I sell coffee to Woolworths they may have special demands or packaging demands which differ to those of Pick 'n Pay).
And if the answer to the above question is no - should I be looking at splitting the production company and the supplier company at the least.
Eg: Where my production company farms and imports coffee beans, then refines them into coffee grounds, should a secondary company be created specifically as a vehicle for on-selling those coffee grounds to retailers in order to reduce liability?
Please let me know if this was the right place to post btw, and if there's a way I can improve on in terms of answering questions.
