Surrey Co-Op was founded in 1921 in Cloverdale. During 1957 the Surrey Co-Op was the largest farmer’s consumer co-op in Canada and probably the largest employer in Cloverdale other than the Municipality.

The Co-Op feed mill moved to Abbotsford in 1969, entered receivership in 1982 and closed in 1985

Thanks to Jean Schultz for the 1965 picture and to Joe Kurtenacker for the other pictures. Joe was number one in driver seniority at retirement and drove for Surrey Co-Op from 1953-1985.
