On Products and Pricing: Being a Fair Grocer in a Complex Food System

As we at South Philly Food Co-op get ready to open our doors, we're deciding what will go on our shelves, steered by our product guidelines, recent product preference survey results, and ongoing feedback from our neighbors. We are also drawing on learnings from other food co-ops to inform our pricing strategy and programs that will promote accessibility. We hold the importance of all of this work amidst a critique of our broader food system and policy environment that all too often prioritizes (and financially incentivizes) growing, production, and distribution practices that exploit labor and natural resources in service of corporate scalability.

Join us and Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance for a conversational event in which we'll share our learning to date and plans around product selection and strategy. We'll do some learning together on what it means to be a fair grocer in a complex food system, and offer those interested a chance to get involved with a simple yet key aspect of our store opening preparation. Come with your curiosity, leave with new learning!
