The mission of the Ticonderoga Natural Foods Co-op is to create and support a community-owned Co-op that believes in the importance of healthy living, sustainability and offering locally produced products.
The Ticonderoga Natural Foods Co-op came out of a community conversation back in 2012 about the lack of a locally-owned grocery store in Ticonderoga. In the months since then, a steering committee was formed, the legal documents and the By Laws were created and a member-owner campaign was initiated.
The Co-op is scheduled to open in the spring of 2015.
CO-OPS ARE SPECIAL
The Ticonderoga Natural Foods Co-op (TNFC) is a consumer-owned cooperative—that means if you join, you own it! And so do your neighbors and friends. When you make an investment in Ticonderoga Natural Foods Co-op, you receive financial benefits. You also become part of something bigger: a group of consumers joining together to grow a business that meets their needs. In return, the Co-op makes this promise: We pledge to serve our community with quality products and honest information. Unlike most businesses that make decisions primarily to maximize profits, cooperatives make decisions to maximize service to their owners and the community.
THE BENEFITS ARE GREAT!

When the Co-op is profitable, member-owners are eligible for patronage rebates.
Your name will appear on our Member Recognition Plaque.
Newsletters and email updates.

And the biggest benefit...being part of a major improvement in our community!
