WHO WE ARE
Farmacy Co-op was launched in Bakewell in February 2020. We're a not-for-profit social enterprise that has a big vision - but has prioritised secure access to locally produced organic food & natural essential items. This includes a people-owned distribution network that connects local communities all over the country. We are helping to create local economic systems that provide food security, improve our health & wellbeing, regenerate our ecosystems and allow communities to thrive & that are resilient to any crisis.
We have 3 X part-time workers who are paid but are run by volunteers (currently 20 X packers & 30 X drivers)
The produce we deliver is certified organic - grown without chemical pesticides & non-genetically modified.
We aim to source our produce from local organic farmers as much as possible to support the localisation of food production rather than corporate food dependence.
We have no shareholders - created with a legal requirement & purpose is to focus on social & environmental benefit. We're a not-for-profit business - social enterprise - whose financial surplus (profit) goes back into the project so we can serve the community better & our mission can expand across other communities.
We believe in democracy at work and community ownership. We also want to cooperate & collaborate with other like-minded organisations. Co-ops also offer the decentralisation of power & control.
