Thanks for visiting us here at the Oklahoma Food Cooperative. We are a member owned cooperative business that helps producers of Oklahoma foods and goods sell their products direct to customers. For a description of how we operate, read the Customer Welcome page.
The Cooperative does not buy wholesale and then sell retail. We operate like a farmers market, except that our market is on the internet at this website.
Each producer member is effectively his or her own brand in the Coop. When members order, they don't order "5 pounds of ground beef," they order "5 pounds of ground beef' from a specific producer. You set your own prices. You pay us 11.25% commission to sell through the Coop and your customers pay a 11.25% commission to buy through the Coop.
You must go through an approval process to sell through the Coop. You must be a member of the Oklahoma Food Cooperative to apply to become a producer. Explanation of the producer approval process.
We invite new producers to become part of our Coop family! We hope you will consider joining us in this great local food adventure. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Bob Waldrop, President, Oklahoma Food Cooperative
