Terms & Conditions

Welcome to the ICA Shop

The International Year of Co-operatives is a huge opportunity for the co-operative movement to increase its visibility, and demonstrate the significant role that co-operatives play throughout the world. A simple way to increase visibility is by displaying the IYC logo. The ICA is proud to be working with IYC promotional partners, Wild Thang, to offer a wide range of IYC 2012 products.

Any commission that the ICA earns from sales of these products is used to promote public awareness of the co-operative business model throughout the International Year.
