At AWG, it’s our responsibility to provide our retailers all of the products, tools, and services they need to compete favorably. And we can’t do our job without you. You are the products, and, in many cases, help provide the services. That’s why we consider you a partner–and that’s more than just a word to us.
Our category managers are always excited to discuss new product introduction opportunities. To have AWG assess your products and determine which items complement our assortment, please contact one of the following based on the type of product(s) you represent:
Fresh & Perishable
Grocery, Dairy & Frozen
VMC (Health Beauty & Wellness, General Merchandise, Specialty Foods)
The AWG Partner Gateway is a “best in class” information-sharing portal designed to standardize all communications between AWG/VMC and its vendor and broker partners. AWG/VMC will use this information-sharing portal as the primary and singular way for our vendor partners and their respective broker partners to exchange data, benefiting all trading parties. The AWG Partner Gateway capabilities provide:
- Improve speed and profitability of decision-making;
- Implement long-term demand forecasting capabilities for our vendor partners (including the visibility to drive supply chain efficiencies);
- Significantly reduce manual processing costs via vendor partner workflow automation for overall vendor partner updates; and
- Simplify item management/introduction and information maintenance with our vendor partners
