“New Generation” Cooperatives – A New Twist on an Old Model

Year Funded




Project will fund improvements in the business environment for “new generation” Cooperatives which will lead to new opportunities for producer-owned, value-added businesses. “New generation” cooperatives provide farmers the opportunity to raise the capital to own and operate innovative, value-added businesses while allowing them to retain control of processing and marketing.
