Your #CoopStories

Today, the International Day of Co-operatives marks the end of Co-operatives Fortnight 2017, two weeks of celebration and sharing #CoopStories about how communities and co-operatives co-operate.

I’ve been reading some of the stories co-operators have shared this Co-ops Fortnight, here are some of my favorites.

Starting internationally, proving ‘co-operatives ensure no-one is left behind’, Brad Hill has shared his story about working with our Fairtrade producers, Kuapa Kokoo, a cocoa-growing co-op, for the last 17 years.

Fay Bowden met Josie in her local Co-op who puts a smile on everyone’s face that she meets, I’m sure you’ll all agree.

Ed Powell Has supported Edinburgh Bike Co-op when making the choice to buy his daughter a bike, they’re owned by cyclists for cyclists.


I hope you’ve enjoyed Co-operative’s Fortnight as much as I have.
