The Independent Operator Committee, chaired by Kevin Davis, Bristol Farms, is an FMI Board-level committee that evaluates FMI's activities and makes recommendations on programming and services uniquely applicable to independents. The committee monitors industry trends, including technological advances, competitive challenges and consumer needs, for the purpose of identifying key issues of opportunity and concern for smaller operators.

FMI hosted “Independents Day” at FMI2012. Independents Day was a new program designed by the FMI Independent Operators Committee focused directly on bringing the greatest possible value to independent supermarkets at this year’s show. Independent's Day was kicked off with a “Hard-Hat” tour of the show floor before it opened. Thank you to our sponsor Stericycle Expert RECALL, and thank you to Rick Brindle of Kraft Foods, Inc., for welcoming the hard hat tour participants to FMI 2012.
