agri-cooperatives are present in Europe, democratically empowering 7 million European farmers to go from the land to the market, anticipating customers and consumers’ needs. They improve farmers’ position in the supply chain and collectively design tomorrow’s agriculture.
Agri and Forestry cooperatives enable farmers to do those things that they cannot get done individually. Cooperatives pool farmers resources in certain areas of activity, provide various services and advises. They also add value to produce and market it with an integrated approach,creating economy of scale.
men and women are employed with Agri and Forestry Cooperatives in the EU. European agri-cooperatives are values-led organisations. They actively contribute to the achievement of the 17 United Nation's Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs) by innovating and creating social, economic and environmental benefits.
