The UN declared 2012 the International Year of Co-operatives, highlighting the contribution of co-ops to food security, economic development, and employment around the world. Despite this recognition, co-ops do not always understand the contribution of other co-op sectors and industries to more resilient, democratic and sustainable local economies. This workshop panel explored the impact of co-ops across our food system--including farmer co-ops, food co-ops, worker co-ops and credit unions--and the potential of the co-operative economy. Panelists included Erbin Crowell, Neighboring Food Co-op Association; Jerry McGeorge, Organic Valley/CROPP Co-op; Nicholas Reid, Equal Exchange; and Mark Wolff, Credit Union National Association.
