Food cooperatives are on the rise. There are approximately 300 food co-ops in the United States, and it would be difficult to travel to foreign countries and not find some sort of cooperative businesses in operation. More than 100 million people in the United States are members of some type of co-op. They may not all deal in fresh produce and groceries, but the movement toward consumer-owned businesses continues to grow each year. According to the Nation Cooperative Grocers Association (CGA), the average sales growth in 2006 was 15 percent higher than the previous year.
