Convenience and Exchanges

Convenience / Exchanges

The global system of convenience stores and exchanges are an opportunity for food and non-food consumer packaged goods manufacturers to deliver a familiar taste of home to those serving abroad or in the U.S. The system is operated under the U.S. Department of Defense Army & Air Force Exchange (AAFES), Navy Exchange (NEX), Marine Exchange (MCX), Coast Guard Exchange (CGX) and Veteran’s Canteen Services (VCS) programs. The system serves active-duty U.S. Military, Guard and Reserve members, military retirees and their families.
