Administrative / Biographical History

NOW is the Network of Wholefood Worker Co-operatives. It was established in 1986 by a number of wholefood co-ops who wished to establish a communication outlet with similar businesses. Membership covered all aspects of the wholefood trade, including retailing, manufacturing, wholesaling and catering. The network dissolved in 1993 due to lack of membership.
