The Corner Food Co-operative is a store in Alfies’ Café in the Butchart Centre, home of Aberdeen University Students’ Association. The co-op is open between 11am– 3pm Monday to Friday during term-time.
The Corner sells organic and Fairtrade food products to the University community at wholesale prices. Besides the weigh-your-own rice, beans, nuts, seeds and dried fruit, The Corner also sell hand-made jewellery, household products, confectionery, snacks, teas and much of what you would need for food-preparation.
She added: “As someone who loves learning about food cultures around the world, I am immensely excited to see our students spearhead such an initiative. As a consumer, I’m thrilled that a food coop will be right around the corner from my office. I hope that it becomes an integral part of community life on campus.”
