Why are cooperatives so special? 

At the heart of a cooperative, you find a philosophy of sharing. Imagine a place where your voice echoes with the same strength as everyone else’s, where profits are shared fairly.

It’s this democracy, this constant concern for the well-being of its members, that makes cooperatives so special in your eyes.
