Associated Grocers Inc. (AGBR) has partnered with the Southern University Men’s Basketball team to sponsor its nutrition center, becoming the team’s exclusive grocery partner.
The station is located within the men’s team locker room and is available to players throughout the season and while they are on campus.
“I am incredibly excited and grateful for our partnership with Associated Grocers. AG has allowed us to elevate the way our team eats and performs,” said Kevin Johnson of the Baton Rouge, Louisiana-based university.
This summer, Associated Grocers served as the title sponsor of Southern University’s Elite Camp, in which students from across the Louisiana and Mississippi area participated in a one-day basketball clinic led by Johnson and his staff.
“We welcome this opportunity to support Southern University as they work to engage students through various stages of athletic development,” said Roeshawn Peters, corporate marketing manager for AGBR.
“Initiatives such as the Elite Camp, and currently through the Nutrition Center, Associated Grocers appreciates the avenues available through the Jaguar Nation to build a fruitful partnership by providing food options for student-athletes that can assist their sports program.”
