business news in context, analysis with attitude

The National Grocers Association (NGA) yesterday announced what it called "a new education program that will provide in-depth training to develop a strategic business plan that addresses multifaceted business issues faced by independent supermarket operators."

Dubbed the Sustainable Business Growth Strategies program, it is designed to "provide independent supermarket operators with the necessary tools and resources to help executives guide their organization through a rapidly changing grocery industry. Participants will explore a vast range of important issues, including consumer trends, identifying areas of differentiation, change management, and workforce diversity."

Sponsored by Unilever, the first session in the program will take place September 11 – 15, 2016 at Cornell University. This event is open to NGA retail and wholesaler members.
