RETAIL – Trade Events The National Grocers Association Show – Where Independent Retailers Gather Independent retailers from across the country attended the NGA event at the Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada from February 9-12. The show gives CAC the opportunity to interact with retailers we wouldn’t normally see at other trade events providing an excellent opportunity for networking. CAC was part of the Produce Marketing Association’s Produce Pavilion and connected with retailers and wholesalers providing crop information, presenting our marketing programs and offering point-of-sale materials designed to drive sales of California Avocados. The expo also provided the opportunity to explain the freshness and “premiumness” of California Avocados and the value of carrying them at retail.
