Consumer IB fish, Is there a better way to forecast wholesale revenue without drilling down to each distributor? Would rather not just slap a rev growth rate.

Anything in between, could slap a growth rate by segment

That’s what I initially thought but this company doesn’t track by segment…..

Assuming that the market is competitive, you can look at the wholesale growth rate of each product over time and apply this to each segment of the revenue. Something like this: revenue per unit x unit x (1+growth rate).

The department of agriculture has a lot of data on wholesale pricing.

Any recommendations on how to pivot effectively without encountering severe financial setbacks?
