The HWGA: Taking the Lead

THE USHWGA: Is the National women trade association representing the retail and wholesale grocers that comprises the independent sector of the chain food distribution. An independent retailer is a privately owned or controlled food retail company operating in a variety of formats. Most independent operators are serviced by a wholesale distributor, while others are employee owned. Independent grocers are the true “entrepreneurs” of the grocery industry and dedicated to their customers, associates, and communities. USHWGA members include retail, wholesale grocers, producers, food manufacturing, pharmaceutical companies, pharmacy set up, logistics and transportation, services suppliers and State grocers associations.

Our Organization runs on membership dues and independent donations... please consider contributing financially.
