180 Years of Co-operation in 2024

This year marks 180 years since the founding of Rochdale Equitable Pioneers Society – recognised as the world’s/the UK’s first successful consumer retail co-operative. The society’s founding principles of 1844 became the blueprint for modern co-ops around the world.

As part of our way of celebrating, we have created logos and are going to be using #Coop180 on our social media channels.

We are encouraging co-ops big and small to share this milestone with us as part of our shared heritage - to find out more contact [email protected]
