Unlike a PLC co-operatives are not about making big profits for shareholders, but they exist to create value for customers – this is what gives co-operatives a unique character, and influences our values and principles.
“We know that people love and trust co-operatives. But we know that people are yet to discover the tremendous range of co-operative products, shops and services available to them. This year’s Co-operative Fortnight focuses on helping people find co-operatives they’ll love – whether that’s sparkling wines or energy providers, online or instore.”
Ed Mayo, Secretary General of Co-operatives UK
