More than 100 years ago something extraordinary happened. There was a revolution in the town of Rochdale. It was called The Co–op, and it was started by a group of everyday people. Five of them were under 26 years old.
They wanted to create a totally new kind of business based on that wonderful thing called democracy, one that was owned by its customers and put money back into the community. And it worked! Now The Co-op has 2,800 food stores and are a part of daily life for millions of people. Staying true to our roots we’re giving 15 young people the chance to have their say in how our business is run.
