Either co-op companies/nonprofits or housing co-ops.
In my local area we have a lot of “co-op” retail stores that aren’t employee owned at all. I haven’t seen a single employee owned store, just “consumer coops” where the consumer can vote on… Something, but the people who actually work there are treated the same as at any other retail outlet.
The biggest dairy brand here is a co-operative and I’ve seen a decent amount of co-operative banks here as well, but I don’t know if it’s right to say that co-ops are common here.
If I may ask, which country?
India. The dairy brand I’m talking about is Amul.
