ABOUT THE FOOD CO-OPERATIVE
We are a not-for-profit member-owned organisation that knows good food. We are crazy about local, organic, sustainable, ethical, bulk and affordable produce.
Members own the Co-op, share the benefits of it and have the opportunity to work in it. The Co-op is managed with consensus-based decision making and all members are invited to participate. The Co-op employs four part time Co-managers. Members behave as working members (volunteers) and/or staff within the store, and perform the other tasks required to keep the Co-op operating.
