Supplier Benefits

Make Connections That Matter

For more than a century, the California Grocers Association has brought together the state’s grocers to form a community of retailers and their suppliers. Large or small, our Association works to help your business thrive by establishing a better connection to your customers.

The CGA is the best entry point into California’s grocer commmunity. They have the industry information you want and connections to the retailers you need.

Join the Conversation

CGA serves as the waypoint for California’s grocery community. Our events assemble leaders from across the industry, creating a network through which our members can build business relationships and develop a better understanding of their customer’s challenges.

CGA opened doors and provided us the opportunity to network with all the CGA members who are our potential customers.

Information for Decision Makers

In a world where anyone can create and distribute content, it is not access to information, but having the right context that makes a difference. Through our curated bi-monthly magazine, weekly email newsletter and educational programs at events, CGA cuts through the clutter to deliver the information our members need to better understand the industry and lead their organizations.

Stand with Your Industry

The health of the industry reflects the health of your customers’ businesses. We work to protect the state’s grocery industry, which means your membership investment goes towards CGA’s comprehensive advocacy strategies deployed at the State Capitol and California’s city halls. Not only are you strengthening the grocery community, but positively positioning your company among your peer group.
