Who we are


NARGON (the Grocery Retailers' Association) is the only voice for independent grocery retailers in New Zealand.

There are over 500 retail members of the Grocery Retailers' Association, all of whom are owner-operators of retail grocery stores. Our members range from the owners of the largest supermarkets through to the smallest dairies/convenience stores, and are based throughout New Zealand. Our associate members include those businesses that interact with the grocery retail industry (such as suppliers and advisers). In addition we have many members operating non-banner stores throughout New Zealand.

The Grocery Retailers' Association has an advisory committee that is made up of owner-operators from a variety of stores from throughout New Zealand.

The Grocery Retailers' Association maintains an executive office in Wellington. This office is the administrative and lobbying base of the Association, and is there to provide a number of services to members.
