Administrative History
Alberta Co-operative Wholesale Association Ltd. (A.C.W.A.) was incorporated in 1928 by several local consumer co-ops, for the purpose of improving efficiency through large-scale purchasing and warehousing. In 1938 it reorganized, and was owned by 9 local co-ops. It expanded rapidly, and by 1951 it managed 56 co-op stores by arrangement with their local boards of directors. By 1958 it managed over 100 stores. It dealt in groceries, hardware, dry goods, lumber, coal, petroleum products, fertilizers, feeds, and farm supplies. The A.C.W.A. was headquartered in Edmonton, and J. Russel Love was its President from the 1940s to 1961. Negotiations to amalgamate A.C.W.A. with UFA Co-op were undertaken in 1958, but was unsuccessful due to differences in strategies and financing structures. In 1961 it amalgamated with Federated Co-operatives Ltd. (FCL), a wholesaler operating in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Custodial History
Records were collected by officers of United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative who attended A.C.W.A. annual meetings.

Scope and Content
This series consists of partial sequences of the Farm Supply Division Manager's correspondence (1960-1961, M-S and 1984-1997, replies to delegates' questions); sales statistics and analysis (1959-1961 and 1995-1996); documents on marketing plan (1986) and five-year operating plan (1987); memoranda regarding personnel changes (2003).
Administrative History
In its early phase, the United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative managed grocery, hardware, and dry goods stores for local co-ops, but in 1952 this function was transferred to Alberta Co-operative Wholesale Association. UFA Co-op established a Farm Supplies Department for wholesaling farm supplies to local co-ops. Initially it distributed mainly bulk products such as coal, fence posts, twine, and agricultural chemicals, but it eventually expanded its range to include varied products such as building supplies, livestock medicines, and fertilizers. In 1954 its name was changed to Farm Supplies Division and in that year the first Farm Supply Centre, a combined warehousing and retail operation, was opened in Calgary. In 1966 restructuring of the provincial Co-op system encouraged expansion of the division's direct retail operations. Its Building Department, later known as the Farmstead Development Department and as UFA Building Solutions, began with an experimental prefabricated barn in 1957. It constructed complete buildings and materials moving sytems for farmers. The specialized Animal Health Department and Equipment Department were added in the 1970s. By 2006 the division was renamed Farm and Ranch Supply Division and it was operating 34 Farm and Ranch Supply Stores. In 2007 it was renamed Agricultural Operations (Ag-Ops). In 2010 it was renamed Agricultural Business (Agri-Business).
