NPFDA has been in existence since 1967 and is constantly growing and changing to meet it’s member's needs. NPFDA was started by a group of poultry & food distributors who recognized a true need for an organization able to deal with the problems of the distribution segment of the industry. Within the course of a year, NPFDA saw the need to expand membership with broad objectives structured to embody all segments of the industry and incorporate a "team" concept.
Maximizing our members’ success is what The National Poultry and Food Distributors Association is all about. By providing valuable resources and networking opportunities, we empower our members to advance their business while having a strong voice in the representation of our industry.
Since 1967, the NPFDA has been recognized as the organization that brings it all together—from distributors to logistics companies, from processors to brokers. Our members consistently praise NPFDA for the meaningful contacts they make through their membership and the knowledge they gain that enables them to increase sales and more effectively handle the day to day challenges of their business. Through our volume discounts, members can optimize their profit margins. And a direct connection to our knowledgeable staff assures members valuable access to the expertise of top performers in our industry.
