Promoting, supporting, and protecting businesses in the food, beverage, and convenience industry.
Since 1899, the Washington Food Industry Association (WFIA) proudly supports the independent grocery industry and its suppliers in Washington. WFIA is a non-profit, statewide trade association comprised of independent supermarkets, convenience stores, and coffee houses.
WFIA's membership represents more than 20,000 stable, reliable jobs and $805 million in wages. Our members generate approximately $373 million in state and local taxes and $3 billion to the state economy.
Located in Olympia, WFIA is one of the oldest trade associations and the only state based grocery industry association in Washington. Since day one, it's been our goal to support and serve the community-focused grocers in our beautiful state. We are proud to say that we've stayed true to our goal for over 100 years and are recognized as industry leaders in areas of government, industry relations, and education.
