"Being Part of a Co-Op Means... A Great Multi-National Community!"
While you enjoy your Co-Operative Coffee break this week take a look at another of our "Being Part of a Co-Op Means..." series. For Jose Serres being a member of The Urban Co-Op is about being part of a great multi-national community. He likes the people, the atmosphere and being a member of The Urban Co-Op and such a great initiative.
Our Co-Operative means many things to many people and for both Lorraine and Áine being part of the co-op is about supporting local businesses and local produce. It's also important for them to know where their food comes from.
