6 food co-ops in Sydney

Shop local and reduce food miles

Reduce your food packaging and support more sustainable forms of agriculture by shopping at a food co-operative.

Food co-ops are volunteer-run organisations that provide seasonal, local and often organically grown produce to their members.

They’re a more sustainable form of business than supermarkets because they’re established to serve their community members instead of making a profit. This means with each purchase, you’re supporting local farmers and producers and encouraging more sustainable forms of farming and produce distribution.

As a co-op member, you also get the benefit of buying fruit, veggies and other ingredients in bulk, instead of using plastic packets, jars and tins.
