Co-operatives in Wales
Wales is part of the UK and home to around 350 co-operatives, employing approximately 7000 people and producing everything from solar energy panels to organic dairy products. It is home to the world famous Tower Colliery and birthplace of Robert Owen. Co-operatives generate £1 billion a year for the Welsh economy. Wales is also a great place to start a co-operative, with excellent business support and a devolved Welsh Government.
Co-operative businesses and organisations from around the world will be exhibiting at the Expo. We will be on stand F5 promoting co-operatives from Wales and helping them build trading relationships as well as promoting Wales as a great place to start a co-operative business. Along with the work of the Wales Co-operative Centre, the stand will showcase
