Ever wished for an ethical food supplier? The Friends of the Earth Australia Food Co-op is just that, producing over 10,000 organic meals per year as well as fruit, vegetables, grains and eco-cleaning products all produced as locally as possible and packaging-free. And it doesn’t stop there. It is also a community hub that brings people together to collaborate on environmental and social issues. This co-op is a pioneer of the ‘Social and Solidarity economy’ and has served as a model for others to replicate. By empowering workers to control their workplaces, cooperatives provide a democratic alternative to the corporate business model that often exploits people for profit. Be inspired!
