Each year, the Maine Grocers and Food Producers Association chooses an outstanding Maine grocer, food producer and associate to honor with our annual awards. Our friends at the Retail Association of Maine do a similar award for their industry businesses.
However, this year, we felt it was important to honor the tens of thousands of people who work in retail, grocery, and food production who have done amazing work throughout the pandemic. It has been an unbelievably difficult year and the people who work in our industries have continued to adapt, pivot, and rise to meet every challenge.
“It’s just what we do,” perfectly sums up your spirit and perseverance. This is dedicated to every Maine retail, grocery, and food production worker. Thank you for all that you do!
