We are one of the first local food cooperatives in the country in which the producers, consumers and staff are all equal owners. Our Board of Directors brings these three categories of owners together along with an 'at-large' position to represent the co-op.
By including three different stakeholder groups (producers, consumers and staff) in the decision-making structure of our operations, we are aiming to expand the understanding and respect of each stakeholder group so that each group can benefit the others. This structure reflects our belief that “We're All in This Together”.
