About us

We are a thriving community-owned co-operative, with a proud history in the Hastings and Camden Haven since 1916.

We employ more than 350 people across eight business units including: supermarkets, liquor stores, fuel, hardware and rural supplies, department stores, cafes, condiment manufacturing and car hire.

Our history

Now one of the longest serving independent co-ops in Australia, we were originally established by a group of local dairy farmers who saw the benefits of joining forces. While we continue to grow from strength to strength, both in size and diversity, we've never lost sight of the importance of the local community.
