Københavns Fødevarefællesskab (KBHFF) is a member-based and member-driven food co-operative in Copenhagen, Denmark. KBHFF is an alternative to the ordinary profit-driven supermarket chains. We focus on offering organic and biodynamic products in season with lots of taste and quality at affordable prices.

  • To us “consumer influence” is not just the opportunity to choose between different brands and groceries. In KBHFF, the customers are members, owners and co-workers.
  • As a member you can buy cheap, locally produced organic fruit and vegetables every week.
  • All members are expected to put in three hours of work in the Co-Op each month. This could be packing vegetables in the shop, ordering vegetables, arranging debates, fixing the website, etc.

As co-owners of KBHFF, all members have a say in the operation and development of the Co-Op. All decisions regarding the products and economy are taken by the members of KBHFF, and every member has the opportunity to influence these decisions.

As a member-owned Co-Op, we only have to take care of the interest of our members. Any profit is used to reduce the price of the vegetables, develop the Co-Op or socially responsible projects in the city around us.

How does it work?
Anyone can become a member of KBHFF after having participated in an intro-meeting. As a member of KBHFF, you can buy a bag of organic fruit and/or vegetables in our shops every week. You do this by pre-ordering your bag in one of our shops or via the internet. The price of a vegetable bag is 100 kr. A fruit bag is 50 kr. You can pre-order for several weeks at once, or just for the following week. You are under no obligation to buy a set amount of bags a month.

The weekly bag typically contains 6-8 different kinds of locally produced and seasonally based organic fruit and vegetables.

Note that it is your own responsibility to pick up your bag during opening hours. If you forget to pick up your bag, we won’t refund your order.

A typical weekly bag from autumn 2009 – with apples, salad, leeks, beets, potatoes, celery and carrots. A kilo of each. All of it fresh organic or biodynamic produce from local farms.

What’s required of me as a member of KBHFF?

The entrance fee is 100 kr. In addition you have to pay a deposit of 100 kr. for the canvas bag in which you receive the vegetables. After that there is an annual fee of 50 kr.

All tasks are carried out by members so you commit yourself to work for at least 3 hours each month in the Co-Op. You can either take 3-hour shifts in one of the shops, join one of our working groups to work with the development of KBHFF, or you can start some brand new initiative that you think will help develop KBHFF in new ways!
