When the Atlanta Produce Dealers Association (APDA) first sprouted into existence in 1947, its primary purpose was two-fold-to share credit information among its members and provide a forum where matters of general interest could be discussed and acted upon. Over the years, those basic principals have remained constant as their commitment to helping each other and improving the industry has grown stronger.
The official membership organization for the area's professional produce business leaders, APDA is located at the Atlanta State Farmers Market and consists of wholesalers, retailers and distributors of food and produce, as well as associates from the businesses that work closely with them.
It is the foremost advocate and liaison for the industry and offers a host of benefits to its members including monthly luncheons, a scholarship program, access to insurance, and fellowship activities. Additionally, the group is actively involved in legislative issues which affect its members and pursues special interest community projects such as the Forest Park Livable Centers Initiative.
