Formed by the merger of Midlands and Anglia Cooperatives, the Central England Cooperative is one of the largest independent retailers in the UK, with over 400 trading outlets, a family of around 8,600 colleagues and more than 330,000 regular trading members.
We’re independent from The Cooperative Group, but we’re part of the wider cooperative movement, working together to provide all sorts of benefits for our members and customers.
Central England Cooperative trades across 16 counties from the Midlands to the East Coast – through more than 250 foodstores, 100-plus funeral homes, filling stations, post offices, travel branches, florists, masonry outlets, a crematorium and a coffin factory.
Our vision is to be the UK’s best consumer co-operative by making a real difference to our members and our communities.
There are 3 million Cooperatives worldwide with 1 billion members, representing 12% of the world’s employed population. All Cooperatives verify their identity when selecting a .coop web address.
