Frontier Co-op has been a member-owned cooperative supporting natural living since 1976. From the beginning, our customers and member-owners have been the core of who we are as a co-op, and continue to be as we move forward. Since the co-op began, we have remained firmly committed to our founding values —integrity, openness, social responsibility, and respect for the environment.
We partner with brands who share our vision for a more ethical, mindful and well world, to bring over 11,000 products to market. From the source, through the supply chain and into the lives of the people like you, we do our best to ensure that each of our products moves through hands in a clean, fair, sustainable way.
What kinds of products do we sell?
We don’t just sell products, we sell the lifestyle. We’re working hard to ensure all products have updated and thorough information, ingredients, labels and up-to-date certifications like Non-GMO Project Verified, Gluten-Free, Certified Organic and Leaping Bunny Cruelty-Free.
While you’ll find a lot of what we sell through other distributors, we hope you find meaning behind your purchase from Frontier Co-op directly. We carry over 11,000 products (and 300 brands) ranging from our parent company’s products (spices, herbs, teas, and aromatherapy and skin care products) to well-known natural living staples like Dr. Bronner’s, Seventh Generation and Tom’s of Maine. We’ve also invested in our smaller yet up-and-coming “mom and pop shop” companies like Simply Soothing, Rumina Naturals, Masontops Wild Thymes.
The products we bring into our line-up are carefully chosen with a well-crafted checklist of criteria we look for. Some of these include:
- Is the ingredient deck clean?
- Is it sustainable or eco-friendly?
- Does it further our mission?
- Is it on-trend or in-demand in the market?
- Is it made in the USA?
What kinds of brands do we partner with?
We’re proud to continue partnering with brands that align with our core values and reflect our company's purpose. We work hard behind the scenes to curate products that are both natural store favorites and on-trend in the market. We love finding brands with a story and a purpose. To us, a brand that hits our distribution critieria, sells well in store and is a responsible, clean and honest company is a brand we want to invest in. We cultivate relationships with every brand and work diligently to evaluate and analyze the success of the products we bring in - not only for our business but for our customers as well. We're constantly on the lookout for brands and products. If you have any suggestions, please reach out to our Customer Care team at [email protected]. We'd love to know what you think!
We've come a long ways since we first started our wholesale/direct business and we're proud our where we are and what the future holds for us.
