Co-op Partners Warehouse was established in 1999 by the Wedge Natural Foods Co-op in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This certified organic wholesale distribution warehouse serves retail stores, food service businesses and buying clubs throughout the Upper Midwest. It is an important link between customers and suppliers of local produce, dairy products and other perishable foods. Because it is wholly owned by the Wedge, Co-op Partners Warehouse carries out the goals and vision of Wedge co-op members. In addition to seeking out efficiencies in sourcing, warehousing and distribution, Co-op Partners Warehouse takes a special interest in fostering markets for smaller scale growers.
