Information

Do you find the price of healthy and organic dry foods prohibitive?  Why not join our friendly neighbourhood food co-op, where you can buy dry foods and eco-cleaning products at wholesale prices. We order each month from Infinity Foods, who supply many health shops in London.  Their large catalogue includes other brands as well as their own, so our purchases are very varied – ranging from Camargue red rice to champagne truffles!

Buying from the food co-op is better for the environment than buying from a supermarket – many of the products are bought in bulk, and food miles are lower (no distribution centres).  Infinity also try to stock as wide a range of Fair Trade products as possible.

How the Food Co-op Works

Each month we meet to decide what we will order, and how it will be divided up (since individual members will not usually want to buy the whole 5kg or even 25kg! sack of rice, or the 12-tin pack of tomatoes!). Once the order has been drawn up, individual members or small groups then:

  • submit the order to Infinity
  • receive the delivery
  • divide it up and repackage in paper bags or bottles
    where necessary
  • deliver to individual households

If you would like to know more about the Food Co-op please post a message at the bottom of this page, or email pg.foodcoop@gmail.com.

  • Out-of-stock this month was only Tranquillity tea, with only 10 packs of Ground almonds delivered. However Infinity had noted the latter, and neither were charged for.

  • Hi, do we have to order every month?
    • Sorry, I've only just seen your comment! No, you don't have to order every month.
