The Coop Directory Service is
dedicated to the memory of
Kris Olsen (1946-1998)
and his life-long effort to introduce people to natural food co-ops and assist them in starting buying clubs.

Most of these distributors (except the herb companies) carry the following items: groceries (stuff in cans, bottles and boxes), bulk food (large bags of grains, etc.), produce, dairy, frozen food, supplements and personal care products.

If you contact any co-op or warehouse you find here, please tell them that the Co-op Directory Service referred you to them.
