Associated Grocers, Inc. provides the best quality and variety of products for our retailers. We are a company that has been a part of the fabric of the gulf coast community for more than 65 years, with our longest vendor relationship dating back that same number of years. The Associated Grocers, Inc. Vendor Portal is an Internet-based tool that vendors utilize to submit deal information directly to Category Management. Once proposed deals are submitted and accepted, they are automatically created in Midas, the Associated Grocers, Inc. selling system, and passed on to Member-Retailers based on the terms negotiated by the vendor and the category specialist. Vendor Portal is a tool for all vendors and brokers to submit deal information in this way only, which will reduce errors and increase corporate efficiencies. The Vendor Portal also provides the information you need to get set up as a vendor partner of Associated Grocers Inc.

For technical questions or issues, please contact Vendor Portal Support. For item, deal or survey questions, please contact your category specialist

As part of our on-going efforts to keep retail prices as low as possible through cost efficient business practices, Associated Grocers, Inc. continues to seek ways to further leverage our investments in technology. Toward this end, we have identified EDI as one of the key technologies to achieve these goals. To accomplish this, we have partnered with Edict Systems as our EDI on-boarding service provider. Although Edict Systems is our on-boarding partner, your company may use any software provider that supports current EDI standards and Associated Grocers’ data requirements. Edict Systems will also provide testing and certification for Associated Grocers’ vendors who choose a different software solution.

For more information please visit the Associated Grocers, Inc. EDI Initiative website.
