The AWG Learning and Development Department is here to support our member retailers, their employees and the employees of AWG. We offer a wide range of learning opportunities, from leadership development, to produce merchandising, to food safety certification, and much more. Our programs fall under three categories: department operations, management and leadership and store operations.

At the foundation of every program is a commitment to provide AWG member employees learning opportunities to make a positive impact immediately and into the future. Our programs are developed and presented by individuals who have extensive, varied experience in the grocery industry. They understand the challenges our members face every day. Program participants also benefit from knowledge sharing with other retailers participating in the program.


Our mission is to provide exceptional learning opportunities and resources for the employees of our members and AWG.
