Our Co-op

Why we're different.

We're one of the world’s largest consumer co-operatives, owned by millions of members. We're the UK’s fifth biggest food retailer with more than 2,500 local, convenience and medium-sized stores.

We’re also:

  • the UK’s number 1 funeral services provider
  • a major general insurer
  • a growing legal services business

And, we have a minority shareholding in The Co-operative Bank.

As well as having clear financial and operational objectives and employing nearly 70,000 people, we’re a recognised leader for our social goals and community-led programmes. We exist to meet members' needs and stand up for the things they believe in.

So, the more successful we are, the more we can give back to you and your local community.

That's why we're different.
