About us

The Co-operative Group is the UK’s largest mutual business, which means we’re owned by our customer members – over seven million of them. And, as we’re not a plc, it also means it’s up to us to fight for our members, our customers, and, of course, our colleagues.

Between our family of businesses, we’re the UK’s fifth biggest food retailer, a leading farmer and a major insurance provider. And that’s not all.

We’re also the UK’s number one funeral services provider, the third largest pharmacy chain and a growing legal services provider too.

Together, our Group operates 4,800 retail trading outlets, employs more than 120,000 people and has an annual turnover of more than £13bn.

Plus, on top of having clear financial and operational goals, we’re also a recognised leader and a true pioneer when it comes to social and community-led initiatives. Ultimately, our aim is to be the most socially responsible business in the UK, offering our members, customers and colleagues not only good value, but good values too.
