IGD has come a long way since the time, 100 years ago, a group of small, independent grocery retailers came together to improve and develop professional standards and deliver training in grocery management. Now the trading company works with leading manufacturers and retailers across the industry, operating from offices in Asia, Europe and North America. One thing we haven’t changed is our commitment to helping small businesses.
IGD is a training and research charity. We have a trading subsidiary, IGD Services, which provides a range of commercial services including research and insight on the food and grocery industry. The net profits from these commercial services help fund IGD the charity.
There are a number of ways your small business can thrive with IGD.
