The theme for Co-op Fortnight 2022 is UnwrapCoops and will encourage co-ops to come together to celebrate the benefits of the co-operative business model.

The Thainstone based co-operative’s relentless focus on delivering for its members has seen the business grow with record membership investment levels of £7.3m and a total value of £640,000 members benefits delivered to shareholders in 2021, including £370,000 in reduced member commission rates.

Grant Rogerson, chief executive of ANM Group said: “At ANM, the interests of our members and shareholders come first, as our service delivers value and return for them and their businesses.

"Our trading members have saved more than £370,000 in reduced livestock commission rates alone over our last trading year and we’re continually looking at ways we can give back to our community.

“In our 150th year, at a time when we have seen so much change so quickly, for the last century and a half, our co-operative has been a constant.

"I am proud that more members are investing in our co-operative, and in return we can reward their loyalty.

"It is this shared success and our desire to secure a prosperous future for the next 150 years that we look forward to celebrating during Co-op Fortnight later this month.”

Co-op Fortnight is organised by Co-operatives UK and brought to life by co-ops across the country.

For two weeks every year co-ops come together to hold events from June 20 to July 3 to share stories and spread the word about the power of co‑operation.
