Welcome to the (virtual) Kootenay Co-op! You may know us as one of Canada’s largest and most successful independent natural food co-operatives. But that’s not all! At heart, the Kootenay Co-op is a mission-driven, values-based organisation of PEOPLE…people who are member-owners, people who are suppliers, people who are employees, and people who are elected to govern the Co-op on behalf of all these other people. In this section, we’ll introduce you to the people of the Kootenay Co-op, our mission, values, principles and approach to doing business differently for the benefit of all.
