Membership of the AFGC, gives food and grocery manufacturers the opportunity to drive significant outcomes to enhance the competitiveness of the food and grocery sector. Working partnerships like those forged between members and AFGC are essential in shaping and influencing the political and policy landscape, which directly impacts on our industry’s operating environment.

Our record of achievement provides a solid base to continue to build on.
