Agricultural co-operatives: a report on the sector

Type: Research  |  Topic: About co-operatives  |  Format: Report

Agricultural co-operatives play an important role in the UK’s agricultural sector. They give farmers greater control over the supply chain, help them cut costs on key inputs through economies of scale and allow the sharing of innovations that can boost output and productivity.

This report reviews the current state of, and support for, the agricultural co-operative sector, the issues it faces and some of the challenges and opportunities looking forward.
