Co-op Basics

October is Co-op Month – Support Co-ops and Your Budget with Co-op-Made Products at Every Day Low Prices

Most shoppers buy products that are produced by a cooperative every week, and most likely, they don’t even realize it.  Cooperatives are really great at producing high-quality products, using sustainable methods and fair labor practices, but we’re often not so great at shouting about it.  Because co-operatives are owned by the folks who use their services – yes, people just like you – we all reflect the various needs and desires of our member-owners.  That means it can be hard to look at a product and recognize that a co-op made it!  At Food Co-ops across the country, you can find a label on our shelves that helps you find your way to Co-op-Made Products.  It looks like this:
