Red Oval Family Partners 

The Red Oval Family—an alliance of the industry’s premier food manufacturers and service providers—partner with IGA to provide extensive resources that are unavailable to other independents.

Throughout the year, Red Oval Partners support IGA Retailers and Licensed Distribution Centers in numerous ways. For manufacturing partners, this includes helping to develop, fund and execute marketing events and providing valuable category management insights that enable IGA Retailers to make better and more informed merchandising decisions. Red Oval Family service providers offer IGA members expert services that help them compete in their marketplaces and add value to their IGA Brand presence. In return, these partners enjoy privileged access to the largest organization of independent grocery retailers, often the industry’s most responsive buyers and creative merchants.
