Euro Coop

Consumer Co-operatives

Consumer co-operatives are organisations that belong to the members, consumers, who influence and control co-operatives' activities at every level. The aim of a co-operative is not to make a profit, but to be of use to its members and defend their interests. 

Consumer co-operatives were the first consumer organisations aiming to defend and promote consumers' interests, and in many countries they contributed to the creation of consumer associations, as it was recently the case in Sweden.

At the European level, Euro Coop's first purpose is to defend and promote consumers' interests. Its priorities are laid down by the members, consumer co-operatives' national organisations.

Euro Coop positions are drafted in closecollaboration with the experts employed by Euro Coop's member co-operatives in order to implement the actions and policies defined by consumers. 

Euro Coop's positions closely reflect consumers' expectations and concerns, expressed by the co-operatives' members or by the customers in shops.
