For more than half a century the Indiana Wholesale Distributors Association, Inc. has served the wholesale candy and tobacco distributors of Indiana. Over 95 percent of member wholesale houses are family-owned businesses serving their own and neighboring communities in Indiana and surrounding states. The smallest of these wholesalers employs seven people, while the largest employs more 200.
In the early days of the association, wholesalers sold primarily tobacco and candy products. Today, however, distributors are widely diversified. In addition to tobacco and candy, distributors sell groceries (dry, refrigerated, frozen), beverages, snack foods, institutional foods, paper products, health and beauty aids, automotive products, chemicals and cleaning supplies, fountain and bar supplies and much more. Among their customers are oil retailers, convenience stores, drug stores, mass merchandisers, gift shops, liquor stores, military installations, airports, schools, campgrounds, service organizations, government agencies, hospitals and nursing homes, and motels and restaurants.
Because they are a part of a responsible industry, wholesalers have invested significant time, energy and resources to ensure that tobacco products are marketed to adults only. IWDA members are interested in any legislation or tax policy which affects their industry. But, as small business people, they are concerned, too, about the rising cost of doing business due to mandated benefits, advertising bans, and many other intrusions by government into the affairs of private business.
Being a member of the Indiana Wholesale Distributors Association, Inc. offers these business people strength in numbers — together they can have a much greater impact on legislative and regulatory proposals affecting the industry than any one company can have individually. In addition, it offers members the ability to share the cost of knowledgeable lobbyists, legal counsel and public relations expertise which they could not individually afford.
