What is a Co-op?

The significant difference between a Co-operative and a company is its democratic nature. Co-operatives are owned and controlled by their members and they apply co-operative principles and values in their day-to-day activities. Co-operatives are based on values of community, democracy, equality, and solidarity.

Co-operative enterprises invest their surplus profits back into the Co-operative or alternatively return them to its members. A  Co-operative’s primary focus is to help  improve and strengthen  its community.
