Direct-to-consumer or DTC is a form of e-commerce that involves a direct transaction between the manufacturer and consumers, often enabled through mobile and digital channels, that allows brands in sectors such as FMCG and food to cut out the retailer ‘middlemen’. However, without retailer support, DTC brands can face many obstacles that can hurt their bottom line. A dedicated review approach can be just the solution to any DTC brand’s key purchase barriers.
