Exhibitors at the Co-operative Retail Conference

Co-operative Party

"As the political party of the co-operative movement, we believe that things work best when ordinary people have a voice, and when services are accountable to the people who use them. Railways run as a partnership between passengers and staff. Tackling the housing crisis through co-operative housing. Fans having a say in their sports club. Credit unions as an alternative to rip-off payday lenders. Shops owned by their customers that give back to the community."

Co-op Insurance

"Co-op Insurance is part of Co-op Group, one of the world’s largest consumer co-ops, owned by millions of members. Alongside Co-op Insurance we have the UK’s fifth biggest food retailer, the UK’s number one funeral services provider and a developing legal services business.As well as having clear financial and operational objectives, the Group is a recognised leader for its social goals and community-led programmes." 

The Phone Co-op

"Let’s keep it simple. We are a telecommunications provider; that means we offer broadband, phone and mobile services to residential and business customers. We are also a consumer co-operative, and many of our customers become members, influence the way we're run and participate in our social and business activities.

"As a socially responsible organisation, we offer honest and transparent prices, with no hidden charges, and aim to both make it easy and keep it personal. It’s why you are greeted by people ready to help, instead of a long list of automated call options, when you contact our UK based customer service team.
