I.T Foods Co., LTD doesn’t have an online selling portal for its products. However, their focus is mainly on traditional marketing which still depends upon the wholesaler and retailer markets and B2B business system.
Companies that sell products or services to various businesses or companies normally use B2B marketing strategies. But it will be better if they will start an eCommerce platform so that it will increase their credibility in front of their customers.
I.T Foods Co., Ltd have not developed any mobile apps on their own, as they had not felt any need for them.
