- Products and Services: these are companies that provide products and services of interest to our co-op natural food organizations.
- Co-ops Products & Services: The “Co-op Products and Services” Section of the National Co-op Directory is intended to let the co-op food stores know that these companies are co-ops to promote cooperation between co-ops which is one of the Cooperative Principles. These are all co-ops that are owned and operated by their members.
- Support Organizations: These organizations provide consulting and information services specifically of interest to co-ops.
- Co-op Stores / Organizations: A general way to describe the majority of organizations listed would be: Member-Owned Natural Food Stores. A few are Member-Owned supermarkets. In this new wave of listings we have included some on-line co-ops and other variations of food co-ops so people can have contact information if they want to start similar co-ops.
All Co-op Grocers get a free listing. If you are a member of a new co-op, make our process faster by contacting us.
