Retailer Owned Food Distributors and Associates (ROFDA) will merge with the National Grocers Association (NGA) beginning January 1, 2020. The merger, approved by both NGA and ROFDA’s board of directors, will bring together two organizations with a shared mission to ensure a robust independent supermarket industry while continuing to provide a forum and platform for cooperative wholesalers.
“NGA is pleased to welcome ROFDA into the NGA family. Our two organizations and missions have been closely aligned for decades and this is a natural next step,” said, NGA President and CEO Greg Ferrara. “Cooperative wholesalers play an important role in serving the independent supermarket industry. NGA looks forward to working closely with ROFDA’s members and associates to preserve what has made ROFDA special, while supporting their share groups and programs.”
