About Food

It is an exciting time to join the UK’s largest Convenience Retailer supported by our 3 million active members.


With over 2,800 Food stores in every area of the UK, we are committed to our goal of being the UK’s favourite Community Food Retailer.

We work at the heart of the local community where customers can find great quality, ethical products at great prices, right on their doorstep.

 

 

 

 

We are the only retailer to sell food grown on our own farms, and we are the biggest supporter of Fairtrade with over 200 lines. This is why we are proud to be ranked the top ethical supermarket in the UK – proof of our commitment to responsible retailing.

That is why we’re good with food.

Why people are proud to work here

Whether it is award-winning products, the broad range of employee member benefits or the incredible enthusiasm of our employees, we think that the success of The Co-operative Food is down to the people who work with us and the pride we take in doing the best we can for our customers.

We have been named ‘Green Supermarket of the Year’ at the prestigious Grocer Gold Awards, fighting off tough competition from Tesco, Ocado and Morrisons, and made ‘Britain’s Top Employers’ list for the second year running.

Our annual ‘Good with Food Awards’ sees thousands of colleagues from across the whole of the Food business come together to celebrate the achievements of colleagues over the previous 12 months.  Award categories celebrated include The Customer Champion, which is voted for by our customers and recognises the colleague who has made the biggest difference to our customer experience. 

Some thoughts from our employees

“It’s great to be part of a business that doesn’t put shareholders first and actually cares about the customers, colleagues and the products.”

“It feels really good when we can recommend award-winning products to our customers.”

“The Co-operative Group really champions causes that are important to people.”
