Get to Know Us
The USWGA was founded in 2004 originally named the Hispanic Women Grocers Association. Main reason being to fill a void in that particular demographic's representation in the grocer industry. Our headquarters was in one of Southern California's largest distribution hubs, the City of San Bernardino.
In 2012, we decided to evolve. Part of that evolution was to be more inclusive and more realistic as to who are membership really is. Hence, the renaming to the United States Women Grocers Association.
The USWGA spent the past decades building business relationships with producers of ultra-high quality goods and products — perishables and dry goods including organics, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals.
In parallel, complimentary professional relationships formed bridging the gap between producer, distributor and wholesaler. Now is the perfect time to infuse technology to simplify managing these relationships and their many moving parts.
