What is a community food co-op?
A community food co-op is a consumer-owned cooperative—that means if you join, you own it and so do your neighbors and friends. When you make an investment in Long Beach Grocery Co-op, you receive financial benefits. You also become part of something bigger: a group of consumers joining together to grow a business that meets their needs. In return, the Co-op makes this promise: We pledge to serve our community with quality products and honest information. Unlike most businesses that make decisions primarily to maximize profits, cooperatives make decisions to maximize service to their owners and the community.
Long Beach Grocery Co-op will be a full-service grocery market. Co-ops are founded on the belief that we can achieve greater results by working together than we can by working alone. We are a consumer co-op: a business that is voluntarily owned and controlled by the people who use it.
