The French Broad Food Co-op is a grocery store that focuses more on people than profit. We do that by providing a living wage, supporting local farmers & producers and being community owned. We support consumption of healthful and organic foods, grown or produced locally with ecological and social responsibility. We encourage informed choice and consumer empowerment, with and emphasis on education and customer assistance. We are committed to use profits to strengthen and improve the Co-op community and to provide a livable wage to our employees. We pledge to maintain a pleasant environment that fosters goodwill, cooperation and participation.
