Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: I have contacted this company about carrying there line a couple of times. The distributor will not sell item due to the fact that a competing store in the area over a mile away had asked them not too. I used to work for said company. I never signed a non compete contract with that company. The fact that fromm has not responded to my inquiries and the distributor is unwilling to help. I have the money all the required permits to sell this item. The fromm company is just denying my store there products. I don't want to take legal action if I have to I will.
Desired Settlement: I would like to carry this line I don nor know why this company is doing this I would like a call from the company Fromm itself.
Attached please find the Fromm Family Foods response to Consumer Complaint # *******.
As far as ********** distributors I only emailed Fromm in regards to them not responding to my inquires. I emailed ********** in November twice and no one from the company ever got back to me. Two weeks later I called the distribution company and left a message with a woman. No one from the distribution called me back. I then sent an email to Fromm due to **********s poor response. I was interested in another avenue since I could not get the distributor to respond. I eventually got ahold of ********** and was told that I was not welcome to carry Fromm. That is when I told them they had no right to do that. It seems to me as if ********** is upset that I sent the inquiry to Fromm and they are now punishing me. I have not had any problems with any other distribution company or food company.
Better Business Bureau:
