The Kentucky Tobacco & Candy Association (KTCA) formed in 1972, is composed of wholesalers as regular members, manufacturers, brokers and other vendors to wholesalers as associate members. Our purpose is to seek improvement of the distribution industry in Kentucky and lend our strength nationally when possible.

Although comparatively small in numbers and budget to other state associations, KTCA has been one of the most active and effective associations in the country. Despite its size, the association has been able to maintain a very high profile in Frankfort and been successful in a number of court cases favorable to the industry.

KTCA is the only trade association devoted to protection of the wholesale distributor in Kentucky. We cooperate with the American Wholesale Marketing Association on the national level.

There is strength in numbers, consequently, companies doing business with wholesalers should consider membership in our association as the industry is "under fire" from many sides and needs all the help we can get to continue the fight.

Your membership in the KTCA will ensure continued success in our endeavors to promote candy and tobacco products in Kentucky.
