We’re proud of our roots as the world’s first consumer co-operative and they still guide who we are, what we do, and where we’re going today. We continue to grow because we support the community that supports us. We make sure our values are reflected in every single Co-op store and business. And, most importantly, we invest in the community.
We’re the UK’s fifth biggest food retailer with more than 2,500 local, convenience and medium-sized stores.
As well as having clear financial and operational objectives and employing nearly 70,000 people, we’re a recognised leader for our social goals and community-led programmes. We exist to meet members’ needs and stand up for the things they believe in.
