Setting the Standard
The independent retail grocer is the cornerstone of UNFI's industry-leading distribution business, which serves a broad range of entrepreneurs ranging from single neighborhood stores to small and large, regional multi-store locations. Each of these independent retailers is focused on the needs of their respective communities and creates a shopping environment that is reflective of - and responsive to - their local neighborhoods.
Working for Your Success
Many independent grocers look to UNFI for more than distribution support. UNFI has a dedicated support team focusing on sales and gross-profit enhancing merchandising and marketing programs, which help to ensure the success of the stores we supply. To best serve the needs of these customers, UNFI offers a full suite of retail support services that include consumer research, data analysis and market development, merchandising and marketing support, private brand programs, leading technology and facility operations services.
Responsive and Innovative
As the market changes, today's consumers expect more from their local grocery store. As a result, independent retailers expect more from UNFI. Our wholesale platform is an easy, collaborative way for independent retailers and UNFI to find solutions that provide real results. UNFI's expertise, flexibility and commitment make the difference in today's evolving shopping experience.
