Who We Are

About The CFA

Since 1933, the Connecticut Food Association (CFA) has been a powerful advocate for the food industry in the state. We are continuously proving to be a dynamic and productive force in the arena of state public policy. The CFA also serves as a source of food industry information to the media, communicating a positive image and a unified voice for Connecticut’s grocery community. CFA’s retail membership is composed of large multi-store chains, regional firms, and independent supermarkets employing over 30,000 associates. CFA’s 90 associate members include the supplier partners of its retail and wholesale members.


The CFA has been a huge asset in drafting pro-industry legislation such as item price exemption and Sunday sales of alcoholic beverages plus informing members of and minimizing detrimental legislation.
