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.
- Members are generally 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. 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 115 kr. A fruit bag is 55 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.
You can choose either to be a regular member or a "support" member (støttemedlem). Support members are not expected to volunteer in the co-op and pay a slightly higher price for vegetables (140 kr. for a vegetable bag).
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.
