I was watching some skiing on the tv over the weekend with the competitors wearing bibs with COOP printed on them. I wonder what the COOP stands for, surely not the one we know.

This skiing was in Falum, Sweden so probably a question for Canny Lass.

Coop stands for exactly the same thing as it does in England - Cooperative Society. It's an international movement where all stores have basically the same principles and practices: Food at affordable prices, owned by its members, all profits shared by members. It's come a long way from its humble beginnings in the UK to now being established in hundreds of countries.

Thanks for the replies. I didn't imagine for one minute that it would be a coop that works the same way as ours. The coop trading principal obviously works in many countries. I wiser now!
