Co-op Retail Trading Group (CRTG)
The CRTG is now the largest and most successful food buying group in cooperative history, supplying food products for co-operative food stores, across the UK. By sourcing products from all over the world, CRTG ensures we can offer our customers greater choice, top quality products and excellent value for money.
"Over the past 12 months we have invested more than £1.9 million in our store renewal programme, bringing the total amount of investment over the past 5 years to £19.3 million."
At the Heart of England Co-operative Society we are working, through CRTG, with a wide range of groups to do all we can to give people in developing countries decent working conditions.
The Fairtrade mark has been introduced to ensure a better deal for growers and small scale producers in those developing countries. For growers, Fairtrade means prices that will always cover the cost of production and allow for sustainable livelihoods. For workers, Fairtrade means decent working conditions and wages that meet international and local labour standards.
