We’re the statewide organization representing the interests and concerns of Maine’s grocery and food producer industry. 

We are monitoring 105 pieces of legislation that would impact our members.  To date, over 1,159 bills have been printed with still others to come including proposals from the LePage Administration.  Work continues on the budget proposal, mostly behind closed doors.  We’re keeping a watchful eye and may be calling on our members to oppose LD 1101 An Act to Adopt a Retail Workers’ Bill of Rights.  This is be labeling as the most anti-business bill of the session.

Join us at the April 22 Food For Thought Forum for a round table discussion on Bills of Interest and a meeting with Governor LePage.  Learn about how your business is faring this session and see why your involvement is so important.
