About Food

Co-op Food Basket

We've been serving the people of Essex since 1867, providing a friendly service and fulfilling all their convenience and top up shopping needs. We still operate to the same Values and Principles as the founders of the Society did, believing in fairness, equality, and doing things the right way.

In our stores across Essex, you can find a wide range of goods and services to meet your everyday needs - from freshly baked bread to fruit and veg and Healthier Choice ranges to vegan, free-from, Irresistible, Local Food and Fairtrade. We offer long opening hours, a wide range of additional services (including post offices and a petrol station), ethically sourced and environmentally friendly products, and fantastic offers and special buys.

Our stores also offer The National Lottery, The Health Lottery, as well as Collect Plus and PayPoint to enable you to pay your bills, including rent, TV licence and your gas and electricity. We also offer mobile phone top ups and postage stamps.
