“Bios Coop” is the first social consumer cooperative grocery in Thessaloniki (Greece). In this place you can find local and cooperative products, usually produced in ways that are not harmful to humans or the environment.
The products are of high quality, selected with strict criteria; not containing prohibited chemical additives, genetically modified, expired and other inappropriate and unsafe substances dangerous to our health and the environment. All products are affordable to consumers yet fair to producers by avoiding intermediaries. The goal of Bios Coop is not to make profits for its members but to cover the basic nutritional needs not only for members but also for non-members. Any surplus is returning to members and the local community in order to be reinvested back into the cooperative.
