The California Distributors Association is a non-profit California corporation. CDA's membership includes a variety of distributors that service the grocery and convenience store industry throughout the state. Additional membership consists of manufacturers, brokers and other associations that share our common interests.

Since 1962, we have used our team's skills to help our members meet their business goals. To ensure success, we maintain close relations with executive and regulatory personnel and with key Legislators on both sides of the aisle.
