We build on an almost century-old tradition

Coop Trading is a modern and forward-looking company, but we are also proud of our roots in Coop Denmark, Coop Norway, Coop Sweden and SOK in Finland

Some of the traditions and values that today underpin Coop Trading date back to the Nordic collaboration that began as long ago as 1918 when the Nordic cooperatives formed NAF. NAF was a trans-Scandinavian organization whose task was to look after the interests of both buyer and seller, and at the same time exploit the economies of scale that exist in collective procurement.

Over the years this collaboration has increased and changed in line with economic conditions, consumer demand and global challenges, and has also been extended to cover other procurement organizations. But the basic aims remain the same as ever - to ensure consumers the best, the safest and the healthiest products at a sensible price.
