what makes us different?
our co-operative difference
Not only are we a leader in our field, we’re also part of the Co-operative Group, which gives a unique advantage:
- Financial security –if you choose to work with us, you can be safe in the knowledge that you’re entering into a relationship with a long-established organisation, renowned for reliability and standards.
- Access to the retail supply chain – as a retailer and a farmer, we can bring farms and clients closer to consumer. Our food stores offer a guaranteed outlet for our products, and we’re now developing a high profile range of Co-operative Farms foods, meeting the increasing customer demands for safe, high quality, traceable food, farmed with care for the environment.
- Consumer trends – as a retailer, The Co-operative has an exceptional insight into the needs of customers, which can be translated directly to our farming business, enabling us to stay one step ahead of the market.
- Influence – The Co-operative is a nationally recognised brand, with considerable influence. In the world of farming, we are a powerful voice within the industry, making sure farmers’ interests are represented when decisions are being made that will affect our future.
- Co-operative values – as a democratic, member run organisation, we are led by co-operative values and principles. The Co-operative Group seeks to practice business responsibly, and as a farmer we are committed to care of the environment, and to supporting the rural communities in which we farm.
