Sustain / Food co-ops / About


Food Co-ops, and other projects and campaigns run by Sustain, have produced a number of publications about buying and selling local food that can help communities, schools, colleges, universities and workplaces set up and run their own food co-op, buying group or other community food enterprise.

Our main and most popular publication is the Food Co-ops toolkit.This is available to download as a pdf or you can access the content via our online and navigable version.
