Welcome

The Iowa Grocery Industry Association (IGIA) is a state trade association that represents the food industry including chain and independent supermarkets, convenience stores, suppliers, wholesalers, brokers, manufacturers and distributors. Our mission is to proactively promote and strengthen Iowa's grocery industry.

Founded in 1899, the IGIA has long served as a resource to its members, the food industry and the public through education, legislative support, networking and philanthropic programs. The association’s leadership is as diverse as the industry it serves with directors from major retailers and independent markets, as well as national and local wholesalers and suppliers.
