Our co-op provides customers with certified organic, seasonal produce with limited packaging. There is no mark up on the bulk order so customers are accessing reasonably priced certified organic produce.
Costs | Fees | Everything Explained
OCS orders from a suppliers and local farms. OCS Co-op customers and volunteers divide and fill the customer bags. OCS does not add a profit margin, but we do add on the supplier's delivery fee, plus a cost for the packaging and administration.
How does the OCS co-op work?
Bags are preordered and prepaid so we know exactly how much to order and pack.
Our bags include a range of seasonal, certified organic fruit and vegetables. Bags will be available to order every week, with bulk delivery to OCS each market morning. This bulk delivery will be separated by volunteers into customer orders by 9am every market morning for collection by customers.
Bags will be available as $30 mixed fruit and vegetable bundles (but you can order more than one bag - $60, $90, $120….) A $5 fee will be added to each order each week to cover the cost of the bulk delivery, packaging and administration costs (paypal, website, insurance). That is a maximum $5 fee no matter how many bags you order each week (1 bag = $35, 2 = $65, 3 = $95, 4 = $125…)
A one off Co-op joining fee of $10 is charged on your first order. This fee is used when the cost of the bags is above $30. Each week when you collect your full bag you return your empty bag so we can reuse it. (The initial order for 1 bag = $45, 2 = $75, 3 = $105, 4 = $135…)
As there is no profit margin we cannot offer the 10% discount available to OCS members.
