  • Setting the Co-op Standard:  The Seven Cooperative Principles

    The cooperative is a unique business model because it is governed by its members, the people that own it, giving them all a voice in the co-op.  However, what truly makes co-ops special are the seven cooperative principles on which co-ops operate, setting a standard for how these businesses should be conducted.  A co-op is so much more than a "business" and these seven values are the core of their uniqueness and success.
