Food Co-op

We run a food co-operative that provides members with the opportunity to buy both dried and fresh local and organic foods at more affordable prices. View the list of products here.

Foods and household products are bought wholesale directly from Tasmanian producers where possible, or from local wholesalers, Eumarrah and Biodistributors. We put a small mark-up on the food to cover costs and enable us to keep increasing our product range. The products we stock have been chosen because they are locally grown, organic, environmentally-friendly and/or fair trade.

You need to bring your own containers or bags as we have a strong policy of reducing packaging waste. You can leave your containers to be filled by our friendly volunteers and pick them up later.

Email the Co-op for more information.
