Statement on Racism

At Northwind Co-op we stand for a healthy and inclusive community and that does not stop with food. 

We believe there should be equal rights for all, justice for wrong-doing, acceptance of all and compassion for one another.  We believe in standing up for our beliefs and creating action and awareness for inequality and injustice.  We aim to be a part of creating a better, more compassionate community and world.  We stand with those who have been mistreated or lost their lives because of the color of their skin, their sexual orientation or untreated mental health issues.  We stand with our community, we stand for equal rights and fair treatment for all.


We are a member-owned cooperative health food store located in Downtown Ironwood, Michigan. The Northwind Natural Foods Co-op was formed in 1979 to provide the Gogebic Range and surrounding areas with access to whole, natural and organic food. Since that time we have strived to be more than a grocery store. Everyday we work to enhance our community and improve the quality of life in our neck of the woods.

  • Local Produce & Meats.

  • Specialty Wine, Beer & Spirits
  • Bulk Spices & Grains
