Progressive Grocer Events

Grocery Industry Week will be held Nov. 1-4 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort in Orlando, Fla., and includes the following:

The Impact Award program: This is the first-of-its-kind initiative that will showcase the positive impact retailers, suppliers and solution providers are having with environmental, social and governance efforts. Progressive Grocer's aim is to amplify the accomplishments of retail industry leaders, highlight innovative approaches and inspire the industry to further to greatness by “honoring exceptionalism" across 9 categories.
