Co-operatives Fortnight brings together co-operatives and their members and supporters from across the country to raise awareness of the ways in which co-operatives are offering fantastic, local and trustworthy shops and services for everyone’s needs.
In 2013, Co-operatives Fortnight is focusing on raising consumers’ awareness and understanding of the diversity and benefits of co-operatives. Co-operative businesses and organisations are armed with online and printed resources, for use in store or for members to take out, to encourage people to explore local co-operatives and find new co-operative shops and services.
Ed Mayo, Secretary General of Co-operatives UK says:
“We know that people love and trust co-operatives. But we know that most people are yet to discover the tremendous range of co-operative products, shops and services available to them.
The purpose of this year’s Co-operatives Fortnight campaign is to focus on helping people find co-operatives they’ll love – whether that’s sparkling wines or energy providers, online or in-store.”
