Today those of us in the CPG Industry are faced with many challenges and head winds: understanding & meeting the needs of our retail customers & consumers, dealing with increasing costs, economic instability, pressure from government mandates, etc. We at the Florida GMR believe that by working together and supporting each other, we can find ways to achieve our goals profitably while providing opportunities for personal development.
Founded in 1949, and with a current membership of over 800 and growing (+16% in the last 2 years!), The Florida GMR continues to be a strong & relevant organization. Our mission is simple: to foster the interaction and development of grocery industry professionals. To this end, we have held record-breaking forums with our retail partners that have offered our members key insights into their vision for growth & success; and we have raised over $50,000 for our growing CPG-focused scholarship program just in the last year, quadrupling the number of scholarships we are funding and the number of universities we are supporting.
And now, we are poised to do more, add more value, and be even more relevant in today’s ever changing market.
With the support of our retail partners, we are working hard to provide even more value to our organization & its members by expanding the reach, frequency and depth of our events.
So we invite you to join us and be a part of something great...be a part of the Florida GMR!
