English translation:core/shared product mix
Explanation:
Found a Web site using this term, and giving context: "Ces sociétés sont soudées autour d'une stratégie commerciale unique, d'un tronc d'assortiment commun et d'une politique commerciale et de service identique."

Here is what the Oxford Superlex has for *tronc commun*: tronc commun (d'espèces, de langues) common origin; (de
lignes de bus) joint section; (de disciplines) (common) core
curriculum.

And here is LGDT's explanation of *product mix*--I think it fits your context:

Domaine(s)
commerce
produit commercial


product mix (af)
Contexte(s): The profitability of various products may be different, and there are limits to the markets for each. The result is a complex programming problem to determine the best product mix to produce. (b)

Synonyme(s):
range of products (c)


assortiment de produits n m (af)
normalisé par l'Office de la langue française
Ensemble des différents produits d'une entreprise. (df)

Synonyme(s):
gamme de produits n f (e)
normalisé par l'Office de la langue française

[Office de la langue française, 1982]
RBT2096547

LGDT seems to prefer *core* for most terms with *tronc commun*, and I find 6 sites, doing an Alta Vista search, that use "core product mix". Here's an excerpt from one: "The two selected colors were part of a core product mix. There was ample quantity in stock. "

10 hrs
standard product assortment


Explanation:
That is, a collection of items designed to meet most of the needs of most potential customers most of the time (based, no doubt, on all sorts of sophisticated consumer surveys and sampling, projection, and analysis techniques...!).

Such assortments are made up in advance for retail customers, who thereby are spared the trouble of deciding how much of each individual product to carry.
