Grocer of the Year

Wisconsin grocery industry’s highest honor, the Grocer of the Year Award, is presented annually to recognize an individual or individuals for lifetime achievement within the grocery industry. These honorees exemplify the highest qualities of leadership in business and in their community and their influence has positively enhanced the lives of others.

Excellence in Operations

Excellence In Operations Award honorees are recognized for their work ethic, commitment to the grocery industry, and for efforts that have positively influenced their company, associates, and customers.

Vendor of the Year

The Vendor of the Year Award will recognize one vendor for their many contributions as a grocery industry partner, helping grocers strategically merchandise products and increase sales in one or multiple store categories. The nominated company must be a WGA Allied Member.
