Master Grocers Association of Victoria expanded nationally and became Master Grocers Australia.


MGA absorbs the Liquor Stores Association of Victoria (LSAV), which resulted in the forming of Liquor Retailers Australia.


MGA absorbs the National Association of Retail Grocers Australia (NARGA).


MGA expands again and takes on Mitre 10 stores as members.


Master Grocers Australia rebrands as MGA Independent Retailers.
