New Food Co-ops Keep Opening!

<<<<< Republished with permission from Cooperative Grocers Network >>>>>

Continuing a wave of cooperation, 11 new food co-ops have opened since the previous mid-year summary listing. Food Co-op Initiative (FCI) oversees and assists this nationwide movement, and in recent years a similar number of new co-op stores have been announced. This year’s crop ranges from all along the Eastern Seaboard to the Northwest U.S.

FCI Executive Director Stuart Reid announced and welcomed the cooperatives listed below: new members of the food cooperative sector and the greater cooperative community. At the June 11-13 CCMA conference in Boise, Idaho, Reid presented a video giving a striking tribute to these successful startups. Reid also provided additional information highlighting the story of each of these 11 co-ops in a report that appears in the July-August issue of Cooperative Grocer.
