Producer Cooperatives

Producer cooperatives are owned by people who produce the same type of goods. By pooling member products, a co-op can negotiate better prices and provide access to larger markets. These co-ops often operate shared facilities for processing or distribution. Many varieties of agricultural cooperatives fall into this category, which also includes forestry and artisan co-ops.
