An agricultural cooperative is a company which is set up through the agreement of many farmers and, thanks to this integrative formula, they find an economic, political and legal system to share their small estates and thereby develop a top rate business activity that would be inaccessible to each of them individually.
The following extract from the Explanatory Memorandum of Law 27/1999, of July 16th, on Cooperatives in Spain, perfectly summarises the essence of Agri-food cooperatives like ours: the business formula in which people position themselves in the centre of the organisation while meeting the highest standards of competitiveness and competitiveness of the market:
“…Appropriate legislation for cooperative societies, causes the legislator to consider the need to offer an appropriate vehicle which channels the group initiatives of citizens who carry out their income-generating activities and stable employment. The promotion of cooperativism as a formula that facilitates the economic and labour integration of Spanish people in the market, makes the requirements of profitability and competitiveness of the more developed economies perfectly compatible with the values that have shaped cooperatives for more than one hundred and fifty years. The elements of a company of people, such as cooperatives, can live in harmony with the demands of the market”
