THE PURPOSE OF COOPERATION
Modern cooperatives operating in the most developed regions of the world have long recognized that association is the most adequate dam for opposing the interests of large business entities. At present, this is the only way for small producers to protect their profits and their interests. By doing this, the majors are able to bring themselves into the equal position of negotiators on the market.
Volunteering in the phase of accession or establishment, solidarity as the basic principle of business association, democratic decision-making rights, autonomy of the functioning of the cooperative in the spirit of a good businessman, and in relation to other institutions, are only part of the principles on which cooperative activity rests.
By combining work, finance, intellectual skills, business knowledge, business experience, and other resources based on cooperative principles, a prospective business environment is created. By optimizing these potentials, a business foundation is created, whose upgrade can not be confined to external economic factors.
