 Connect with The Food Conspiracy Co-op here:

The Food Conspiracy Co-op was born in 1971, when a group of Tucson residents formed a buying club. These original members used their collective purchasing power to get natural food products, which were largely unavailable in stores at that time. The original co-op store occupied one storefront on 4th Avenue, and over the years expanded into three more adjacent storefronts. In the early years, the co-op was run as a collective, with all of the approximately 20 employees holding joint responsibility for decision-making. Eventually, the current model of a Management Team led by a general manager was adopted.

As the natural foods industry has blossomed in recent years, health food has become available at many other retailers in Tucson. Food Conspiracy, however, remains the city’s only full-service consumer cooperative. Because we are owned by our members, and beholden to them rather than to corporate interests, the quality and range of products we offer is unique in Tucson.

Our store is open to non-members and members alike. We pride ourselves on our product quality, our excellent customer service, and our strong history as a cooperative business in Tucson. We invite you to come visit us and see for yourself what makes us special.

Why You Should Get Involved
with Palm Done Right

Palm can be grown for good, bringing benefits to:

  • Our planet, due to palm oil’s land efficiency.
  • Local communities, due to the economic development oil palm production creates.
  • Our market, due to palm oil’s versatility and functionality as an ingredient, lifting product quality and performance.

Together, we can influence change for:

  • Manufacturers that are still using conflict palm oil for their products.
  • Retailers that are still listing products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Brokers and distributors that are still supplying their customers with products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Shoppers that have the power to vote with their dollar.
