Your Best Investment

Since 1898, the California Grocers Association has served as the voice of the California grocery industry. Becoming a CGA member is one of the best investments a grocery retailer, supplier or wholesaler can make.

CGA offers its members a comprehensive advocacy program, industry-leading communications, media relations representation, relationship-building networking and educational scholarship opportunities.

CGA is the only grocery-focused, trade association in California that offers a comprehensive advocacy program providing vital representation at the state, local and regulatory levels. That’s critical when operating in the most heavily regulated state in the nation.

As the California grocery industry’s leader in communications, CGA keeps members informed about critical issues through award-winning publications.

Joining CGA gives your company’s employees access to thousands of dollars in college scholarships and tuition reimbursement programs through the CGA Educational Foundation.

CGA provides numerous networking opportunities to help build relationships with key industry contacts. Our CGA Strategic Conference is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for grocery retailers and suppliers to gather for three days of face-to-face business meetings, insightful education sessions and networking events.


Protect the investment you have made in your business and learn about issues critical to your day-to-day operations. CGA covers state, local and regulatory activities so you have one source for information that affects your business.
