Can I please remind all societies that data should be entered by Wednesday afternoon.
If you are experiencing problems entering data or are unable to meet this deadline can you please email me on or call me on 0161 214 1784 to provide an update

I would also like to clean up the list of users on the Information Exchange system and would therefore be grateful if you email a list of the people entering data at your society along with their contact details

Information Exchange is a monitoring scheme of trade for retail consumer societies in membership of Co-operatives UK. 
The scheme's purpose is to show as clearly and concisely as possible the trading performance of  the main retail businesses of individual co-operative societies and of the Movement as a whole. 
Performance is shown both over time and, where possible, against relevant external benchmarks.
In exchange for submitted data, each participating society will have access to a range of regularly updated charts and tabulated data covering the Movement's retail activities within each of the following sectors:-
Food Stores

The current participating retail consumer societies are:
The Co-operative Group
Central England
East of England
Scottish Midland
Channel Islands
Heart of England
