Foundations are important in any plan, and so the foundation on which the Co-op was built started this way.


The Co-op should be community based, manned and organised.
It should aim at developing and encouraging private product development.
It should have a social, and food supply service all year round, all local supply where possible.
It should aim to grow steadily within its present budget whilst developing rapor and reliability
within the communites it serves.
All profits should go back into the growth of the service, until established.
All products to be of nutritional value and of benefit to good health options.
The business should be low stress, high impact.
It is the aim to beat winter depression in our communities.
A percentage of profits to be shared yearly amongst its members upon establishing membership options, and optimum business development. That is after we are established.
