Serving the community. Join us!
Become a member and be part of a successful and valuable business.
The Natural Food Store Limited is an Industrial and Provident society, a co-operative owned by members of the community, people who use the shop and want to see it thrive.
The mission of the society is to run, develop and expand a valuable and valued business in Headingley for the benefit of the community and a wide body of loyal customers. It aims to provide an excellent service, making its offer available to existing customers and also many new ones – people keen on healthy food, wanting in many cases to shop on foot and wanting to see a diversity of food provision in their locality.
We are building a strong and supportive community of interest around the shop. Members shop there, encourage others to shop there and are vital to its success. Members can influence the strategic direction of the business in a variety of ways: by taking part in general meetings and elections to the board of directors and by giving feedback and ideas.
Members and Investors
We are always looking for new members, people who share our values and are willing to invest some money to help us. To become a member the minimum investment is £100.
The Natural Food Store Ltd is a co-operative, a democratic and mutual society where all members have an equal say regardless of the number of shares owned. Buying shares in the society is a good way of supporting the shop and the values it promotes. We rely on investment from members to develop and expand what is already a strong business.
