Flatbush Food Co-op Product Policy

Our co-op serves a diverse community, and we know that great food means different things to different people. We want to help people make their own choices about which products are good for their health, their community and their wallets. We choose products to ensure that we are meeting the needs of both member-owners and shoppers, by considering product requests and keeping the following guidelines in mind.

We strive to provide products that are:
• Certified organic
• Minimally processed and minimally packaged
• Locally sourced (grown or produced within 300 miles and/or New York State) including an emphasis on Brooklyn- and NYC-made items
• Fairly traded, purchased from other cooperative businesses and other socially responsible sourcing
• Free of artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners and preservatives
• Produced without genetic engineering (non-GMO)
• High quality and fairly priced
• Safe and sustainable  for ourselves and the environment
• Suitable for people with health concerns, allergies or special diets
