In the first half of 2022, the proportion of direct sales increased to 36%. The flattening of channels gives Moutai a greater voice, which is conducive to strengthening the management and control of dealers, and at the same time accelerating the company’s price adjustment and the reach of the series of wine marketing strategies. The i Moutai APP was launched to restart the self-operated e-commerce platform and further promote digital empowerment.
