co op logoDaily Bread is a workers co-operative. Our co-operative is a business that is owned and controlled by its workers, so we are not accountable to outside share holders.

We are committed to providing good, wholesome food at a fair price, avoiding the exploitation of others, including our customers.

We have a long-standing and strong commitment to Fairtrade principles and products. We also are committed to stocking as much organic and local produce as we can, as well as offering a really wide range of gluten free and vegan products. All of our produce is suitable for vegetarians.


Daily Bread originated from a Church Group at St. Peters Church, Weston Favell, Northampton. The founders of the co-operative wished to develop a business that reflected their beliefs. The store opened in October 1980. We continue to try and live up to those original ideals.


The co-operative has a commitment to give away a percentage of its annual turnover to causes outside of the co-operative, with particular reference to educational projects in developing countries. Much of this giving has been distributed through our sister charity Strive (registered charity number 313899). We also support projects in and around the town of Northampton, such as Northampton Soup, and the Hope Centre, which works to relieve poverty and tackle the causes of homelessness.

Please feel free to contact us if you would like to know more about us and our way of running our business.
