The Doylestown Co-op’s mission is to be a member-owned grocery store that provides convenient access to a variety of locally raised or produced foods and other products and to foster a healthy and economically viable environment for our farmers and our community.
We are committed to acting cooperatively. We encourage each member to contribute to and participate in all activities we undertake as a cooperative. We support other co-ops and cooperative efforts and educate our members and our community about consumer issues and the cooperative movement.
We follow and promote the International Cooperative Principles:
- Voluntary and Open Membership
- Democratic Member Control
- Member Economic Participation
- Autonomy and Independence
- Education, Training and Information
- Co-operation among Co-operatives
- Concern for Community
We are committed to the environment. We work to sustain a healthy planet, promote environmentally sound products and practices, encourage and support local and organic farming, and try to act with environmental consciousness in all our endeavors.
We are committed to our community. We work to build lasting interdependent relationships, embrace diversity, provide accessibility, and generously give back to our community. We support local businesses, wholesalers, community groups and institutions in ways that strengthen our community and benefit our members.
