CGA Hosts LA City Local Government Day

CGA and member companies including Vons, Ralphs Grocery Co., Gelson’s Markets, Smart & Final, Northgate Gonzalez Markets, and Unified Grocers on October 16, with no fewer than 12 Los Angeles City Council members.

The meetings were designed to help the grocery industry raise its profile in the state’s largest, and most active legislatively speaking, jurisdiction. With no formal issues to lobby, the group focused on developing and deepening relationships that will help the grocery industry and CGA become a resource for elected officials when discussing policy proposals that impact retail grocers and suppliers.
