Inside the Coop

National Co+op Grocers, or as we call them, NCG.

National Co+op Grocers (NCG) is a business services cooperative for retail food co-ops located throughout the United States, of which the Co-op Natural Foods recently became a member. The NCG represents 143 food co-ops operating over 195 stores in 38 states with combined annual sales of over $1.7 billion and over 1.3 million consumer-owners. NCG helps unify natural food co-ops in order to optimize operational and marketing resources, strengthen purchasing power, and ultimately offer more value to natural food co-op owners and shoppers everywhere. View their brochure.

The Co-op Natural Foods is proud to be a member of NCG and believes in the Mission and Ends established by the NCG.

Mission & Ends Statements

Mission: NCG will provide the vision, leadership and systems to catapult a virtual chain of food co-ops to a position of prominence in the natural foods industry.

Ends (Global): NCG embodies the aspirations of its members through integration and programs that provide the capacity of a chain while supporting the autonomy of a local business. The benefits of NCG membership warrant the resources and participation required of its members.
