The Trading Partner Alliance (TPA) is a joint industry affairs-industry relations leadership group that was formed by the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) in January 2009. It is comprised of members of GMA’s Industry Affairs Council and FMI’s Industry Relations Council. The TPA exists to develop a shared retailer-manufacturer agenda on supply chain efficiency issues, the application of information technology, the adoption of environmentally-friendly business practices and other issues. This common agenda is executed jointly by the FMI and GMA staffs and is overseen by the boards of directors of both organizations.
