Best from the West

You know that first bite of home-cooked burger, fresh off the BBQ? You know what makes that bite taste even better? Knowing those ingredients are a few of Calgary Co-op’s 2,500 local Best from the West products. Because along with the flavours of caramelizing beef, crisp lettuce and melting cheese from the best farmers and producers in the West, is the flavour of supporting a local grocery store owned by 440,000 Calgarians.
