The American Bakers Association (ABA), Washington, D.C., and Valley Cooperative Association, Greenville, Wis., entered into a unique membership arrangement that will leverage key strengths of each organization.

“We look forward to getting to know Valley Cooperative Association’s staff and wholesale baker members,” says Robb MacKie, president and CEO of ABA. “This partnership is the embodiment of one of our core initiatives to strategically align the baking industry.”

“Becoming an ABA member was an easy decision for Valley. We understand that having easy access to the right resources has never been more vital to our members’ success,” adds Mark Munroe, president of Valley Cooperative Association. “We admire the great work ABA does for our baking industry. We believe our cooperative community of bakers, millers and allied companies will bring value to the group and also benefit from sharing the journey with ABA.”
