50 New Food Co-ops in 5 Years!
New food co-ops continue their very strong growth, with more than 50 new cooperatives opening stores since 2009 – and more opening in 2014. These groups are located all over the U.S. map and also vary widely in size and scope. For stories of new food co-op community ventures, along with those on the present website, visit Food Co-op Initiative’s site as well, where the best of the cooperative resources for startups are gathered: http://www.foodcoopinitiative.coop. After the June 12-14 CCMA conference, where new food co-ops will be announced and applauded, we’ll have an update on this page and in Cooperative Grocer.
