What is a grocery cooperative?

Grocery Co-op Principles Co-op Principles
  1. Voluntary, Open Membership
    Open to all without gender, social, racial, political, or religious discrimination.
  2. Democratic Member Control
    One member, one vote.
  3. Member Economic Participation
    Members contribute equitably to, and democratically control, the capital of the cooperative. The economic benefits of a cooperative operation are returned to the members, reinvested in the co-op, or used to provide member services.
  4. Autonomy And Independence
    Cooperatives are autonomous, self-help organizations controlled by their members.
  5. Education, Training And Information
    Cooperatives provide education and training for members so they can contribute effectively to the development of their cooperatives. They inform the general public about the nature and benefits of cooperation.
  6. Cooperation Among Cooperatives
    Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative movement by working together through local, regional, national and international structures.
  7. Concern For The Community
    While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the development of their communities through policies accepted by their members.
