Since 1999, U.S. food co-ops have been putting the ideals of “cooperation among co-ops” into practice through their own second-level co-op, National Co+op Grocers. Today, this is a co-op owned by 138 U.S. food co-ops that brings together over $2 billion in purchasing power. Come learn more about how NCG works, what it does, and how it makes a big impact in the operations and success of its member and associate co-op partners. Join us for a quick-paced overview of NCG now and its plans to continue to strengthen the food co-op as a sector and a movement. Anyone is welcome to join this session – those involved with co-ops that are already part of NCG, as well as those considering joining in the future.
