Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) is a diverse business operating in the agriculture, food, energy and building sectors. Based in Saskatoon, Sask., FCL is owned by independent retail co-operatives from across Western Canada. FCL is involved in wholesaling and manufacturing, including refined fuels and lubricants. It also provides administrative and marketing support to its member-owners.
The Co-operative Retailing System is built on the foundation of working together. History has shown our Federation is able to succeed and grow - to the benefit of our communities – when we are united.
"In 2018, FCL launched a new vision that embodies this. The new statement – Building sustainable communities together – will provide direction and purpose to the work FCL does every day. The Board worked with the Senior Leadership Team on developing the statement. The concept isn’t new, but it finally puts into words what we have always known and done. The vision reaffirms our commitment to and impact on communities – ensuring our actions are meaningful and have longevity."
Brad Schultz, President/Chair of the Board
"Over the last several years, we have focused on building up three key foundation areas: brand, technology and talent management. We have reached a place where these foundations are solid and FCL priorities will begin the transition from these more internally focused areas to a greater external focus. That means a greater focus on the end customer and ensuring our offerings are competitive and appealing to current members and new customers."
Scott Banda, Chief Executive Officer
In 2018, FCL introduced a new vision statement as a way to refocus why we’re here, how we can stay relevant and what we can accomplish together.
Building is about continually improving to ensure success.
Sustainable means being resilient and committed to long-term growth and vitality.
Communities are what FCL and the Co-operative Retailing System are all about. We were created by our communities and are part of the fabric of our communities.
Together reflects the collaborative approach we take as a co-operative.
