What is Fukui Co-operative Society
(Fukui Kenmin Seikatsu Kyōdō-Kumiai)?
Fukui Co-operative Society started out in 1977 as a local retail cooperative society to supply goods purchased on a bulk-order basis all over Fukui Prefecture. Its aim is to improve people’s lives by meeting the collective needs of its members and consolidating their purchasing power.
In 1978, the year after its foundation, the cooperative society received the official sanction of Fukui Prefecture and started full-scale operations with the aim of meeting its members’ needs and expectations.
Fukui Co-operative Society is a cooperative organization used, managed and capitalized by its members so that they can collectively seek to maintain and improve their health and welfare.
The Co-operative Society serves the needs of its members and the local community.
