Western Family member-owners expanded their relationship with Topco, with Topco now assuming the procurement and marketing services for Western Family’s own brand of products, including Western Family, Shurfine, Natural Directions and ShurSaving.
The agreement affects Affiliated Foods (Amarillo, Texas), Associated Food Stores (Salt Lake City), Associated Grocers of New England, Piggly Wiggly Alabama Distributing Co. Inc., Olean Wholesale Grocery Cooperative, Unified Grocers and URM Stores Inc.
Western Family has already been purchasing health and beauty care products from Topco for more than three years, and the expansion into additional programs is the next step of the relationship.
“Topco’s experience, coupled with their economies of scale, will be a benefit to our independent retailers making it easier for them to remain competitive, while continuing to offer the same quality Western Family products consumers have trusted for over 50 years,” said Ron King, president, Western Family Foods.
