The successful Bright Food Group Co. announces a buying spree among Australian and European firms, according to Bloomberg. A smart strategy, comments retail analyst Shaun Rein, who says buying existing brands is better than building your own.
Buying overseas assets may help the closely held company make the best use of its “extremely” strong distribution network in China, said Shaun Rein, managing director of Shanghai-based China Market Research Group.
“Rather than spending the money and time building up new brands, it makes sense for them to acquire a well established foreign brand and leverage its strong distribution,” said Rein.
