Co-operatives Fortnight is a two week period when co-ops of all shapes and sizes across the UK come together to encourage people to choose co-operative.
Equal Exchange is a proud worker co-operative. For those who arenâ€™t familiar with them, worker co-ops are owned and controlled by the people that work in them. A democratic and open approach to business is at the heart of what we do; we arenâ€™t designed to maximise profits back to shareholders.
From high street retailers to co-op pubs, fan owned football clubs to farmer controlled businesses, healthcare to housing, wind farms to web designers, Co-operatives Fortnight is a sector-wide national campaign.
Organised by Co-operatives UK, and brought to life by co-ops across the UK, Co-operatives Fortnight is the perfect time to choose co-operative.
Look out for co-operatives in your area. There are probably more than you realise.
