Magazine design and production, website redesign, multiple site consolidation, directory, forums Since late 2002 Triangle Park has been the home of Cooperative Grocer, a trade magazine and a resource-rich website for food co-op leaders. Founded in 1985, its editor is Dave Gutknecht, and its contributors are managers, board members, trainers, and others working at food cooperatives across the U.S. and Canada—businesses that historically led the early growth of cleaner and more local food. The publication and website (grocer.coop) emphasize sharing of professional knowledge and strengthening these value-driven businesses.
Triangle Park designs and publishes Cooperative Grocer magazine and its interactive website on behalf of Cooperative Grocer Network, whose member organizations are food cooperatives. The website offers the most frequently visited national food co-op directory, searchable archives with 30 years of magazine content, current co-op and industry news, and members-only discussion groups on food co-op topics. The magazine is published every other month, while the website resources are updated or expanded on a nearly daily basis.
