Co-operative Business Consultants is a co-operative consortium of individuals and organisations committed to social justice through solidarity co-ops operating in the UK and Ireland. For over a decade we have built a solid reputation for our high quality services to co-ops, working with many start-ups as well as existing businesses.

CBC is active in finding new ways forward and promoting democracy and accountability within the co-operative movement. Since 2014, we have hosted five major conferences and submitted popular proposals to Co-op Congress UK on co-operative identity, living wage, salary ratios and member participation.

We have a unique and principled track record for successful co-op responses to key social justice issues, including fair trade, organic food and farming, fan-funded football stadiums, Palestinian solidarity olive oil, credit unions and co-op identity.

CBC directors currently include: Jo Bird, Phil Frampton, Bob Cannell and Martin Meteyard. CBC Associates include: Trademark Belfast, Footprint, Sharenergy and North West Housing Services.
