You and yours and coops

BBC Radio 4’s You and Yours lunchtime programme has been looking at coops this week, and doing so, I’d say, in a balanced and intelligent way.   There have been packages on three very different cooperative businesses, the venerable wholefood shop and cafe 8th Day in Manchester, Clansman Dynamics in East Kilbride (an employee ownership venture which engages in some serious manufacturing work) and  Snaith Salad Growers in east Yorkshire, an interesting agricultural coop which I hadn’t come across before but is worth checking out.

I’ve been asked to appear tomorrow (Fri) on the programme for the final round-up discussion (the feature should be going out about 12.30pm).
