The Distributor/Producer Partnership Part III: When the Partnership Changes, What Are Your Options?

What happens when your partnership changes? Just like any relationship – business or personal – change is inevitable, but some changes require more action than others.   As distributors continue to consolidate and craft and independent producers continue to grow, what’s best for your business and do you have options? Is there ever a time to “break up” with your distributor?  Do you have the right legal language in your contracts to protect your business in the event of change?
