Business co operative
A co-operative is where a number of individuals or businesses work together to achieve a common purpose. They are normally formed so that individuals and small businesses can benefit from being part of a larger group, which gives them more power to buy or bargain.
There are three main types of co-operatives:
- Retail co-operatives
- Marketing or trader co-operatives
- Worker co-operatives
The Openfields library provides a number of resources about the creation and operation of business co-operatives, which are of specific relevance to the rural, agri-food and land-based sectors.
