The prices advertised in the Co+op Deals flyer are the direct product of the 6th Cooperative Principle: Cooperation Among Co-ops. The Davis Food Co-op is a member-owner of National Cooperative Grocers (NCG). (They own the logo with the green Co+op symbol.) NCG is cooperatively owned by 143 food co-ops operating more than 190 stores in 38 states with combined annual sales of over $1.7 billion and over 1.3 million consumer-owners. Our combined buying power means we can secure better deals from food and wellness manufacturers. That gives the Davis Food Co-op the buying strength of a chain grocer, while remaining 100% independent and 100% community-owned.
