Demonstrating our commitment to the environment.
We offer thousands of local, organic and gluten-free products. We also provide a choice of free-range, free-run, organic, comfort coop, omega-3, vegetarian and conventional eggs.
Fresh from the local farms and ranches all over Alberta, our meat isn’t just raised the right way, it’s prepared the right way too. Our Co-op Pure line of meats includes naturally raised Canadian bison, veal, duck, and pork with no added growth hormones.
Last year, we diverted 3,980 tonnes of paper, cardboard and plastics for recycling and 2,629 tonnes of organics for composting which is, in turn, spread on over 500,000 acres of local farmers’ fields. Thanks to these efforts, we saved the equivalent of 63,000 mature trees and 99 million litres of water, while saving 20,000 cubic yards of landfill space, 13,000 barrels of oil and 13,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
We know how important our employees are and that’s why it’s our goal to make Co-op a great place to work. We provide competitive compensation, extensive retail and management training, and career advancement opportunities for all of our employees. Last year, we contributed nearly $100,000 in employee scholarships.
We also continue to fund post-secondary bursaries for Mount Royal, SAIT and the University of Calgary.Work at Co-op
