We’re in the business of food – wherever it’s sold

FMI creates and facilitates an environment for open and free dialog among business interests in food retail and wholesale with a unique focus on the wants and needs of the U.S. grocery shopper. Within FMI, members work together, unselfishly and with mutual respect, to ensure the success of the food retail industry and the well-being of the customers they serve. We believe healthy trading partner relationships are critical to effective business performance in an ever-evolving, customer-centric landscape, which is why FMI unites the entire food chain to better serve each other, feed families and enrich lives.
