Share Groups


Throughout the year, FMI hosts multiple events to link non-competitors in share groups across the country. These groups allow food retail professionals in similar subject areas to convene in specialized forums and engage in issue-specific dialogue.


FMI currently operates ten share groups.  Information and feedback from share group discussions can help food retailers improve efficiencies and profitability, as well as develop relationships with leading food retailers from around the country. Share group meetings are self-funded and involve discussion, store tours and education and resource sharing.

For more information about FMI’s share groups, please contact our Membership Department.
