Co-operatives are about people working together to meet their common needs and aspirations. Growing from a great co-operative heritage, around the world over 800 million co-op members are making their communities a better place. People working together build co-ops that provide services to members, create employment and give democratic control to the co-operative’s members. These co-operatives come together under the umbrella of the International Co-operative Alliance.
