Dear members of consumer societies, employees and veterans of consumer cooperation of Ukraine!

Traditionally, on the first Saturday of July, cooperative organizations around the world join global professional celebrations, promoting the cooperative movement and its principles and values.

The consumer cooperation of Ukraine also remains in the care of the welfare of domestic cooperators. As a full member of the International Cooperative Alliance and European Cooperative Associations, Ukraine’s consumer cooperatives profess world-recognized cooperative principles, aim not to enrich themselves but to care for the socio-economic needs of people, encourage members of consumer societies to take initiative and self-employment. It is effective tool for overcoming shocks and crises.

Unity, mutual assistance and peace remain the invariable values of Ukrainian consumer cooperation. So today, in this difficult time, it is the consumer cooperative movement that can serve as an example of democracy, self-organization, patriotism and unity around the common goal.

We are convinced that experience, professionalism and dedicated work of Ukrainian cooperators is the key to victory in any challenges of the present and future, further development of both domestic and global cooperative movement, the formation of a strong and independent Ukrainian state.

We wish members of consumer societies, employees and veterans of consumer cooperation, as well as their families good health, happiness, prosperity, fruitful work and peace!
