Your Co-op is a family of businesses operated by the Midcounties Co-operative. The Midcounties Co-operative is one of the largest independent UK co-ops with over 640,000 members and 7,300 colleagues. Following the model created by the UK’s first socially responsible businesses, co-ops are developed to build stronger, more effective communities. People have always been the heart of co-ops, and it is our mission to enhance lives as we work towards a fairer, more sustainable, ethical future.
Our family of businesses offers Food, Travel, Childcare, Utilities, Pharmacy, and Post Offices. The Society trades nationally through some of its businesses, including Travel, Utilities and Childcare.
Your Co-op Food has it’s heartland in Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Buckinghamshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, the West Midlands, Wiltshire and Worcestershire. In our Your Co-op Food stores we are tackling single use plastics and have already replaced all single use plastic shopping bags with compostable bags, saving 8 million plastic bags per year. Our Co-op branded food packaging is all widely recyclable, and we take pride in providing our members with access to fair trade and locally sourced produce.
Our Utilities businesses offer our members climate-positive broadband and mobile products across the UK, to help them reduce their household carbon footprint, and we work with local renewable energy groups up and down the country to provide the UK’s only 100% Community Generated renewable energy tariff, sold in partnership with Octopus.
In our Childcare business, our Green Flag Eco-School accredited nurseries educate future generations about sustainability and the environment, and our Travel business is actively working towards the launch of carbon neutral holiday packages.
