Wholesalers and suppliers of goods and services to the retail food industry can join the Pennsylvania Food Merchants Association as associate members. PFMA associate members join a prestigious group of suppliers who enjoy the services and recognition provided by one of the nation's largest and most respected food industry associations.
Associate membership unites wholesalers, suppliers and vendors with grocery and convenience store retailers. Associate members gain opportunities to connect with Pennsylvania retailers through PFMA contacts.
