A co-operative is a group of people acting together to meet the common needs and aspirations of its members, sharing ownership and making decisions democratically. Co-operatives are not about making big profits for shareholders, but creating value for customers – this is what gives co-operatives a unique character, and influences. (1)
The Blue Corn Coop is a consumer’s cooperative between our community in Seattle and the Fernandez family, Latino farmers from Sunnyside, Washington.
