Topco uses a customer centric, data driven approach throughout the offering of exclusive brands, products and services. Topco's product and service offerings are broken down into 10 programs with highly specialized resources designed to support each of these key areas.

CENTER STORE

Topco's Center Store includes the Dairy/Bakery, Frozen, Grocery, Health & Beauty Care and General Merchandise programs. Together, these areas represent more than $4.3 billion in annual volume and purchase more than 4,600 items on behalf of Topco's membership. Approximately 20,000 orders are processed through these programs each month, which procure product from more than 500 suppliers. More than 42 members participate in the Topco's Center Store Private Label sector of business.

Topco members sell over 1.5 million cases of peanut butter, over 40 million Tippy Toes diapers, 20 million pounds of dry dog food and 78% of the total U.S. exports of Fluid Milk to Mexico.*

FRESH

Utilizing Topco's aggregate volume, superior market knowledge, on-site inspection process, and national procurement coverage, members are able to serve as the dominant perishable merchant in their respective marketplaces in our Fresh Meat, Seafood, Branded Meat, Deli/Bakery, Produce and Floral programs.

Topco’s Fresh Programs purchase the largest amount of Certified Angus Beef 18 years running (38% of all National Retail Volume) along with 11 million three-pound bags of clementines.*
