Our commitment to the Northern Rivers Community


Our commitment to the Northern Rivers community is demonstrated by our involvement and financial support of agricultural, sporting and cultural events and various not for profit organisations.

The Co-op is proud to recognise individuals who have achieved State & National recognition in their chosen sport, as well as local junior sporting associations who provide a platform for young children in our community to improve their health & wellbeing.

We play an important role in dealing with Local, State and Federal Governments on a variety of agricultural, social and environmental issues. 

We are a founding member of the Northern Rivers NSW Brand, a brand that represents a region (from the Tweed to Clarence) endowed with beautiful and world renown natural assets. The Northern Rivers has a history of strong community connectivity with its land, culture and people and strengthens collaboration for business across the region. Visit
