Aunty R, Aunty J and I got to talking about starting a Co-Op the other week...
Essentially the aim was to be able to purchase organic products at a price which is approximately the same as the current non-organic brands we are purchasing (and hopefully cheaper) so that we can stretch our weekly budgets further and feel good about eating organic products.
So the Geelong Organics Co-Operative was born..
A Co-Op or Co-Operative is:
A democratic organisation, owned and controlled by its members for a common benefit.
Co-operatives are traditionally based on values of self-help, self-responsibility, equality and solidarity.
Members of a co-operative can benefit from economies of scale through the combined purchasing, distribution or marketing power or influence of the group. (definition found here)
Coconut Sugar ( $8 for 1kg)
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil ($15 for 1L)
Raw Cacao Powder ( $16.50 for 1kg)
Desiccated Coconut ( $8.80 for 1kg)
If you want to be a part of the Co-Op or have any idea how to start one - drop me a line x
