Get Involved

Get involved in a national movement that distinguishes co-ops in the marketplace and leverages our collective impact. Only cooperatives can belong to P6, connecting grocery co-ops with wholesale (farmer and producer) co-ops. P6 is a cooperative and our members own the program.

Retail Co-ops

P6 retail members share benefits including:

  • A Shared Vision for increasing market access for small farmers and producers, building co-operative supply chains and, ultimately, changing our food system.
  • An Alignment Tool to meaningfully connect your store vision with all levels of your store- leadership, buyers, staff, producers and members.
  • Cooperation Among Cooperatives connecting your store with a networked movement of cooperative leaders through peer to peer events and information sharing.
  • Tools & Resources including best-practice documents, launch materials, templates, tool kits, framework for discussion and product selection, tips for staff engagement, and design files.
  • Values-driven Store Growth increasing your bottom line  by building market share for products that meet your highest values.  All while supporting the fulfillment of your co-ops ends or mission.
  • Market the Cooperative Advantage by focusing your marketing dollars on telling the co-op story using an established brand with clean, professional, user-friendly materials.

Wholesale Co-ops

P6 wholesale members share benefits including:

  • Build relationships with mission-aligned retail grocery co-ops.
  • Enhance co-op to co-op supply chains by growing the reach of your co-op made products.
  • Market the Cooperative Advantage by being a part of a marketing program focused on telling the co-op story.
