Wakefern Food Corp.

A leader in food and beverage retailing, Wakefern’s unique cooperative structure allows independent grocers to compete, and succeed, against multinational chains. While many might think it’s impossible for family-owned businesses to deliver a customized, community-specific experience AND the competitive pricing and product variety customers have come to expect from large chains, Wakefern has proved that it’s not only possible, but it has allowed us to be a strong force in the grocery industry.

In fact, with 51 member families who independently own and operate 354 retail supermarkets under the ShopRite, Price Rite Marketplace, The Fresh Grocer, Dearborn Market, and Gourmet Garage banners, Wakefern Food Corp. is the largest retailer-owned cooperative in the United States.
