Associated Wholesale Grocers
Associated Wholesale Grocers (AWG) knows its customers can’t live on bread and milk alone. The second-largest retailer-owned cooperative in the US (behind Wakefern Food Corporation), AWG supplies more than 2,800 retail outlets in some two dozen states from eight distribution centers.
In addition to its wholesale grocery operation, AWG offers a variety of business services to its members, including marketing and merchandising programs, shelf management, insurance, and store design. The firm sold its company-owned retail stores, which operated under the Homeland and other banners, in 2011 to focus on its wholesale business.
AWG was founded by a group of independent grocers in 1924.
