Co-operative Conversations: episode 4 part 2: roundtable

15 July 2020 20:15 - 21:15


A collective advantage

One of the things a co-operative can do is unite a community or collective of producers to work together to overcome adversity. We speak with four different horticultural co-operatives about the challenges that brought them together in the first place and how they have used co-operation to mutual benefit. How can co-ops help producers access shared services and value add through new business ventures and access new markets?

Join journalist Pete Lewis with special guests.
