WHAT IS A CO-OPERATIVE?
A co-operative is different from an ordinary economic enterprise because it is not owned by a private interest. People from the community support it as members and profits are returned to the business in the form of improvements or increased member benefits.
Central to the food co-operative philosophy is fostering co-operation within the community and promoting healthy lifestyles and sustainable use of the Earth's resources.
With your help and support, our Co-Op will continue to grow and thrive into the future.
We began with four families as a simple buying club in 1971. By 1977 the Co-Op had become large enough to warrant opening a store to serve the public as well as its members. Under the name of the Hillsdale Family Food Co-Op and, later, Hillsdale Natural Grocery, we have been in several locations in downtown Hillsdale at different times.
Today our progressive outlook on food and nutrition is needed more than ever. With more products than ever to choose from, we look forward with confidence towards the future. If you shop at our store you probably share many of our concerns about health and nutrition. Become a Co-Op member today and reap the healthy benefits from a lifetime.
