Euro Coop

Who We Are

                                                                          

Founded in 1957, Euro Coop was one of the first Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) to be recognised by the European Commission. It has made its expertise available to all European Union Institutions for the promotion of the interests of consumer co-operatives and their consumer-members.

Euro Coop is the voice of the co-operative retailers in Europe. Our organisation brings together:

Together, Euro Coop members are Europe’s strongest retail force.

Today, Euro Coop represents and upholds the structure and ethics of consumer co-operative enterprises at European level. Our Secretariat achieves this mission, in particular, by its participation in different fora such as the Stakeholders Platform of the European Food Safety Authority "EFSA", various Advisory Groups, Working Groups, and Platforms within the European Commission, the European Retail Forum for Sustainability, the European Consumer Consultative Group "ECCG", among others. The Secretariat ensures that the voice of consumer co-operatives is well-represented within the workings of the European Parliament and via strong collaboration with the European Economic and Social Committee.

Our Objectives:

Consumer Co-operatives Worldwide (CCW)

 

 

According to an agreement between Euro Coop and the International Co-operative Alliance (ICA), Euro Coop provides secretariat support to the work of Consumer Co-operatives Worldwide (CCW) - the global sectoral organisation for consumer co-operatives.

Euro Coop provides the Secretariat for CCW.
