The Grocery and Liquor Association (GALA) was formed some 65 years ago as a voluntary Community fundraising arm of Master Grocers Australia. The GALA committee consists of a number of grocery and liquor industry representatives who willingly volunteer their time to support a worthy community organisation, namely the Reach Foundation – which supports our challenged and troubled youth through specific development programs in Victoria and New South Wales
The purpose of GALA is to represent both the Grocery and Liquor Industries in supporting community organisations while fostering goodwill, friendships and networking opportunities for all companies (wholesalers, retailers and suppliers) willing to be involved.
GALA conducts Major Annual Industry Community/Charity events throughout Australia including industry Golf Days, industry breakfasts and the annual GALA industry Ball.
As a result of these events, GALA has been able to raise considerable funds for the Reach Foundation and other community organisations in designated states.
In recent times, additional committee members have been recruited from the trade ensuring the trade is always presented with the freshest and liveliest approach to fostering a community spirit within our industry.
