Explanation:
Wholesaler: A company that handles the resale of books in large quantities and serves booksellers (distributors work on behalf of publishers).
(http://bookzonepro.com/glossary.html)

Dealer
a firm that buys and sells, adding some value for the consumer in the process. Dealer often means a firm which operates closer in the distribution channel to the consumer than a distributor or wholesaler, and may add more value for consumers than either of the above-mentioned terms.

Distributor
synonymous with wholesalers; distributors perform many of the same functions as wholesalers, such as selling, physical distribution, credit, etc. Some industries use the term distributor instead of wholesaler.

Wholesaler
an intermediary which sells to other intermediaries, such as a firm that buys from a manufacturer and sells to a retailer.

Example:
Different levels of trade necessarily involve difference in selling activities, although differences in selling activities alone are not sufficient to establish differences in levels of trade. Similarly, customer categories such as "distributor, "wholesaler," "retailer," and "end-user" are often use ful in identifying levels of trade, although they, too, are insufficient in themselves to establish differences in levels of trade.

Explanation:
"refined vegetable oils"

"Plantaardige olie": vegetable oil

"Geraffineerd" is the past participle of "raffineren" : to refine.

---------------------------------------

Literally translated "grootverdeler" means "large distributor".

"Groothandelaar" [ as opposed to "kleinhandelaar"] is more used and means:

wholesaler [as opposed to retailer --> retail trader] --> <American English also> jobber, merchant.

"Groothandelaar in textiel": wholesaler in textiles;
"in wijnen / kruidenierswaren": wholesale wine merchant / grocer.
