In order for Tim’s Coffee Shoppe to be successful, Tim will have to be sure he has a consistent and reliable supply of coffee beans. Research coffee bean producing countries on the Internet, and choose one country along with a grower that would have the greatest supplier potential to import beans for domestic sales with your distribution firm. Choose a country and a grower for your supplier of coffee beans that you (as distributor) can then sell. Discuss your reasoning.1. What are the economic advantages of dealing with a vendor from this country?
Does the country have environmental laws that align with those of our country?
What are they?
Will there be a marketing advantage by divulging the source of the coffee beans?
Why or why not?
Will sourcing the beans from the supplier you choose affect Tim’s bottom-line or not?
