Co-op News is a magazine and news website that connects, champions and challenges co-ops and co-operators around the world!

We were founded in 1871 by retail societies in the UK, who wanted their own press organ to share news, ideas, successes and challenges. You can find out more about our past here.

Today, Co-op News – which is run by a co-op, Co-operative Press Ltd – produces and curates news stories, features, interviews and other context about and for the global co-op movement and beyond.

We are a multistakeholder co-operative, owned by our members. These members include individuals and organisations around the world, who participate in our democracy – but importantly we are editorially independent. You can find out more about our governance here.

You can meet the team here, meet our board of directors here – and if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.


Alongside our editorial activities, the Co-op News team can also produce multi-platform copy and design to deliver your creative message. For more information, email [email protected].
