The French Broad Food Co-op is a consumer-owned cooperative, a business owned by the people who work and shop here, a place where everyone makes a difference. From our days as a buying club in 1975 to the bustling downtown natural food storefront we have today, the co-op has been a center for the community and a leader in healthful and natural living. We are dedicated to serving our members and the Western North Carolina community by providing high quality natural foods and personal care products through a mutually beneficial exchange.
Our vision at the French Broad Food Co-op is to be a transformative force in our community and world and to serve as a model of a sustainable business alternative that nurtures social and economic well-being in an environmentally sensitive manner.
At French Broad Food Co-op we support consumption of healthful and organic foods grown or produced locally with ecological and social responsibility. We encourage informed choice and consumer empowerment, with an emphasis on education and customer assistance. We are also committed to use our profits to strengthen and improve the co-op community, and to provide a livable wage to our employees.
We pledge to maintain a pleasant environment that fosters goodwill, cooperation and participation. The French Broad Food Co-op is about a lot of things, but first and foremost it's about you. You own it! You shape it! You make it grow! We appreciate your commitment to us from the bottom of our hearts.
