National Co+op Grocers (NCG), the business services cooperative for retail food cooperatives nationwide, has welcomed three new member co-ops in Oregon, Vermont and New Hampshire, expanding its reach to 164 members operating 230-plus stores across 39 states.

“Co-ops are essential cornerstones of their communities, and we are happy to support these new members as they continue the vital work of supporting vibrant communities and sustainable food systems,” noted C.E. Pugh, CEO of Saint Paul, Minn.-based NCG. “Our recent Food Co-op Impact Report found that co-ops lead all food retailers nationwide in percentage of sales derived from local, organic and fair trade foods and products. Our newest members will no doubt continue to extend that impact to their respective communities.” 

The latest NCG members are as follows:

  • Coos Head Food Co-op is the oldest operating natural food store on the southern Oregon coast. Founded in 1971 with a mission to contribute to the health and well-being of the community, the co-op currently serves nearly 1,400 active owners and generates $2 million-plus in annual sales.
