Forgotten Fields Co-operatives Movie

In 19th Century Manchester food prices were high and quality unregulated. A group of Rochdale weavers took matters into their own hands and a Greater M’cr institution was born...the first Co-operative shop.

This short film recounts the origins of the co-op movement and the significance that this way of working holds for some of the growers we work with in Greater Manchester today.
