What is a Co-op?


What Is a Co-op?

  • Cooperatives are member-owned, member-governed businesses that operate for the benefit of their members according to common principles. Individuals can be members, not entities. (To read the Co-op by-laws click here).   Becoming a member-owner of the Concord Food Co-op is an investment in your community. The Co-op serves our member’s needs for local, organic, natural, and eco-friendly products. In turn, we need the financial support of our membership to improve and expand our product lines, services, and equipment. It also allows us to take on special projects that support our local farmers, downtown community, like-minded nonprofits, and educational programs in wellness and agriculture for our community at large. Membership means helping the Co-op provide you with more of what you want. We are much more than just a grocery store.
