Aotearoa's Co-opping Hub

Co-ops bring…

Community

Buy with your neighbours and friends. Divide your purchases while the kids run around, and support each other through thick and thin.

Affordability

We should all be able to afford to feed our families wholesome food, regardless of income status. Co-opping makes this possible.

Access

Everyone should be able to buy organics and fresh whole food in their community, regardless of location.

Circular Economy

Keep the money flowing in and around your co-op. Reuse and repurpose products, making zero waste buying possible.


Local Economic Activation

Buy from your friends’ and neighbours’ backyards. Sell to your local co-op and get credits to spend on co-op goods! No more money being funnelled to overseas companies.

Supply Chain Disruption

Get any goods you want, straight from the supplier, and cut out all the ticket clippers in-between.

Melissa Henry

South Island

Being involved in a co-op has really changed the way I think about access to wholefoods. I can now afford to feed my family the best food, and I’m doing it with my friends.




Eric Davidson

Northland

I’ve been selling lemons off my tree to my local co-op for about 3 years. I’m stoked to be able to share my lemons with my community, and also make some money at the same time. I love how I can exchange lemons for other co-op goods.

Kat Simpson

Waikato

I have found my tribe! I love sharing food with my friends. I love hearing about their lives, joys and struggles, while dividing up the food we bought together. We’re forming a bond that will last a lifetime, as our toddlers run around the house while we divide our kai.
