The AFDR Top 400 List is provided in partnership with Dot Foods, the industry-leading foodservice re-distributor, that provides products from 500 different manufacturers to more than 3,500 foodservice distributors. The list is compiled quarterly and represents the most-sold non-food, dry, refrigerated, frozen and Protein foodservice products from nationally branded manufacturers.
The list is an easy-to-use resource for DSRs who want to quickly increase their knowledge about products that have proven to be popular among operators nationally. Rankings are based on the number of cases sold during the quarter.
The AFDR Top 400 is just not an honor, but a measurable achievement that tells DSRs that your product is a successful solution for thousands of operators across the country.
AFDR Partners get additional benefits beyond just being featured on the list:
- Use of the official AFDR Top 400 emblem on DSR and customer communications, such as websites, sell sheets and training materials.
- Website links from the list directly to the product information page on the partner's website.
Some product categories, such as french fries, do not appear as high on this list as one might expect. These products are often ordered directly from manufacturers by distributors rather than purchased through Dot because they are sold in large volumes. Many dairy and other locally-sourced products also aren't represented. Private label products don't appear on the list.
