In the short-term, for Snapple to regain some of its lost market share, it should rebuild the previous strong relationship with distributors especially those servicing the warm channel (mostly supermarkets). Since many of the distributors have perpetual contracts with supermarkets, it would be beneficial to have a solid relationship with them so as to improve Snapple's share of supermarket sales.
