Values

Our Values do not sit at the peripheries of our business;

they are and have been, pivotal to our ethos for 50 years. This is our bottom line and what motivates us both in the here and now and in the long-term.

Like all cooperatives, Infinity Foods values are based on self-helpself-responsibilitydemocracyequalityequity, and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, cooperative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.

The 6 pillars of our values are Cooperation, Vegetarian, Environment, Local, Fairtrade and Organic.

Local

In an increasingly global economy, the over-centralisation of food production not only means that it travels further than ever before, but also that we lose our connection to the food that we eat.

Environment

We are committed to operating our business with the lowest impact on the environment and our local community. This means we think about how we source our energy, how we dispose of waste and what packaging we use.

Over the past 50 years, we have donated and supported many charities and projects in support of our local and national environment. See Community Giving
