"It’s during challenging times, independents are doing what they do best – innovating and contributing to the communities they serve," says CFIG president and CEO Tom Shurrie. "From enhancing the competitive position of independents when it comes to developing a grocery code of conduct, and lowering credit card fees, CFIG has steadfastly worked to ensure independents’ voices are heard. Independents are in a myriad of communities across Canada, where in many rural and remote areas they are the only grocery store available."

"From coast to coast during the pandemic, independents were serving their communities – in B.C. we saw Save-on-Foods’ $1-million campaign to feed kids in need in Western Canada to Powell’s in N.L., leveraging their online platform while also taking phone orders and delivering groceries directly to seniors.," adds Shurrie. "CFIG looks forward to showcasing and celebrating independents coast to coast in our 60th year."
