East of England Co-op
The East of England Co-op, the largest independent retailer in the region, has been serving local communities across Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire for 150 years.
They are renowned for their support of local food and drink producers, with their multi-award winning Sourced Locally initiative having ploughed more than £62million back into the local economy over the past decade.
Owned by over 288,000 members – including customers, colleagues and community groups, the East of England Co-op believes in sharing their success and giving back to the people and communities of our region.
The co-operative movement was founded to provide people with honest, quality produce at affordable prices. This year we celebrate our 150th Anniversary and are very proud to once again be supporting the Suffolk Food and Drink Awards, which recognises those who are producing honest, high quality produce for local people today.
