Organic Meadow Celebrates National Co-op Week
October 14, 2014
Happy National Co-op Week!
- Did you know that more than 2 out of 3 Canadians agree that co-ops are a trusted place to do business?
- Did you know that twice as many co-ops remain in business after 10 years as other business enterprises?
- Did you know that in Ontario alone, there are over 1,300 co-operative organizations, operating in over 1,900 locations? (including Organic Meadow!)
By definition, a co-operative is a business enterprise owned and operated for the benefit of those using its services. As a proud farmer-owned co-operative since 1989, this unique model has shaped our organization over the last 25 years and continues to govern our approach to business.
In honour of National Co-op Week, which runs from Oct 12-18, we encourage you to learn more about the rich history of co-operatives in Canada and abroad.
