what we look for in
True Local products
Our Co-op selects products that are healthy for our bodies, our communities, Mother Earth, and meet our member’s needs.
Our produce department exclusively stocks transitional or Certified Organic fruit, veggies and herbs. Across all other departments we favour organic, fair-trade and non-GMO products — when feasible and available. We also favour locally grown and crafted products within our bioregion of the Kootenay’s.
When considering new products, we also look into market details like customer demand and competitive pricing that will be sustainable for shoppers, suppliers and our store.
