The ‘Today’s Women in Grocery’ group was created by the IGBF as a platform for women in grocery to grow their connections, learn from leading inspirational women, discuss issues of concern and to network with each other. Its key focus is on raising the profile of women in the grocery sector and fundraising for the IGBF.

The luncheon will give women in grocery the opportunity to connect and foster important connections with fellow retailer, agencies and suppliers. It will also give them an opportunity to listen to the inspirational stories and experiences of ‘Growing Connections’ in the careers of our insightful speakers.”
