A Worker Owned Co-op

Dandelion Foods is a worker co-operative, meaning that the business is owned and democratically managed by its four employee/members. This model of business provides meaningful, empowering employment to its members and a healthy, sustainable food source to the community.

Co‐ops around the world are organized according to the seven international principles of
co‐operation:

  1. Voluntary and open membership
  2. Democratic member control
  3. Member economic participation
  4. Autonomy and independence
  5. Education, training and information
  6. Co‐operation among co‐operatives
  7. Concern for community
