Definition: Forward Integration is the strategy of seeking ownership or increased control over distributors or retailers (further/forwards in the supply chain).
Is a vertical integration strategy, just as backward integration, which focuses on the supplier side.
Unlike horizontal integration, in BI the firm acquires activities at other levels of the value chain.
