Do you charge brands a fee to be on your retail shelves?

Slotting fees occur in retail all the time, but recently the practice has been in the spotlight in the cannabis industry. Do you charge slotting fees to wholesalers to be on store shelves?

Many retailers and small-scale growers believe this help hasten the end of craft cannabis brands on retail shelves. What do you think? Are slotting fees going to be the norm before too long?

Slotting fees in the grocery industry are common for the large chain stores if you want to get into their whole chain. A lot of these stores are actively looking for local, unique brands to separate themselves from competition and will waive the slotting fees for these types of brands.
