International Day of Co-operatives
July 2nd, 2016 9:31 am     A+ | a-
Zaytoun is proud to be a member of the UK co-operative family, alongside many of our wholesale & retail customers. We are also delighted to be named as one of Ethical Consumer's Best Buy Co-operatives, marking International Day of Co-operatives

This year the theme of the day is ‘Co-operatives: The power to act for a sustainable future’. Organisers of the day, the International Co-operatives Alliance, say this theme is a nod of support to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.  The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were established in 2015 to achieve 3 main things: end extreme poverty, fight inequality and fix climate change over a period of 15 years.
 
Through developing fairtrade markets we support the role of Palestinian farmer co-ops towards ending hunger, ensuring food security and promoting sustainable agriculture.

We share and highlight the struggle of Palestinian farming communities to secure rights to adequate water.


We support Palestinian communities right to develop resilient infrastructure to underpin inclusive sustainable development.

As the International Co-operatives Alliance says:
"Co-operatives have a unique role to play in realizing the Goals, as they contribute to sustainable economic growth, social development and environmental responsibility. Co-operatives are important partners to achieve the SDGs, because they foster democracy, practice social inclusion and operate with concern for the environment, all while having a significant economic impact on the world economy."
