Union Taxis


Union Taxis Coop is an ethical community based Taxi Service, which opened for business at 218 Springfield Road, Belfast 12, just above Springvale Training on Monday 14th April 2014.

Union Taxis Workers’ Co-operative was established to address the many problems that exist within the private hire taxi sector and to provide an ethical alternative for local workers’ and community.  They intend to pay our depot staff above the living wage and to invest significant sums of money, through voluntary contributions, into their community infrastructure i.e. local boxing, GAA, soccer, youth, and elderly folds through their Cooperative Community Social Fund (CCSF).  These investments will be made on an annual basis and the amount Union Taxis are able to invest is entirely dependent on their success as a business. Union Taxis puts the interests of the drivers, desk staff and community first.

Farmageddon Brewing


Farmageddon Brewing is a cooperative thatcomprises 7 friends who know each other either from the martial arts or punk rock scene in Belfast. For the Co-op members, home brewing is part of a mutual interest of growing fruit and vegetables, foraging, rearing pigs and chickens and a general love of self-sufficiency.

The brewery itself is situated on 5 acres of land where the coop has 360 Cider apple and Perry pear trees, 10 pigs, 5 chickens, 4 dogs, 1 goat, fruit and veg plots and a bee hive! The trees are in their infancy and the coop is hoping in the coming years to have a line of Farmageddon Cider and Perry from these ancient breeds. The bees will help to pollinate all the plants.

Part of the ethos of the cooperative is the promotion of small local businesses and as they develop the members would like to reduce their carbon footprint with the use of solar power. Farmageddon’s beer contains no preservatives or fish by-products and is unpasteurised and unfiltered as this can strip out flavour.
