Welcome to the new Principle Six (P6) Cooperative Trade Movement website!

Visit the website and follow our blog to learn more about the good work at P6 to create positive change in our food system. See how P6 supports small farmers and increases market share for small producers in our neighborhoods and internationally. Stay tuned for events and updates from P6 member co-ops. Read profiles on our favorite farmers and producers who embody the P6 criteria: small, local, cooperative. Re-discover the power of the cooperative story and how, by sharing our strengths as a movement and leveraging our co-operative purchasing power, we increase our capacity for creating meaningful steps toward a more just, equitable food system.

Do you share the P6 vision?

Members of the Principle Six (P6) Cooperative Trade Movement envision a food system in which farmers, workers, and producers are valued and compensated fairly at each step of the supply chain.

P6 Members view consumers as powerful participants in global and local economies: engaged, educated and empowered to use their purchasing dollars as a tool for social change.

P6 Members believe that by creating a values-based economy we contribute to healthy, just, and sustainable communities locally and globally.

P6 is growing and looking for new members! Help grow a national movement that distinguishes co-ops in the marketplace and leverages our collective impact. Find out how your co-op can become a P6 member on the “get involved” page. We can’t wait to hear from you!
