About Calgary Food & Drug Executives

Our Mission The Calgary Food & Drug Executives was established in 1974 to bring industry members (Consumer Packaged Goods Company Representatives and Grocery Retailers) together for networking and to provide a forum for discussion about industry issues. They are also co-hosts and help organize the Santa Cause event each December with the Retail Council of Canada. The Santa Cause was established to provide an opportunity for representatives of the grocery industry in Western Canada to come together each year during the holiday season to honour someone within the industry and raise some much needed funds for charity.
