You will want to identify a company, and then find its business operations to see where they do business. The best bet for finding this would be the company website or its annual report.   Next, try locating the following section:   Investor Relations or Investor Resources as this is where you would find financial information and an overview or discussion of a company's business ventures.  Also helpful are a company’s financial filings as they often provide an overview of their market products or brands along with their distribution or supply chain channels.
