UniPro Merger Leads to Layoffs at Progressive Group Alliance

The news follows last Friday’s announcement that Progressive Group Alliance is merging its foodservice and group purchasing operations with Atlanta-based UniPro Foodservice. The layoffs, most of which are considered permanent, are scheduled to take effect in mid-April, according to local news reports.

Performance Food Group executives said in a statement that the deal with UniPro, the industry’s largest buying and marketing group, will give the company a greater breadth of supplier relationships and more purchasing leverage.
