Starting a Co-operative
A co-operative is a business undertaken by a group of people who work together to achieve their aims.
All co-operatives need to be registered with the Registrar of Co-operatives.
The Department of Agriculture has published 17 manuals on the running of a co-operative, as part of their programme to promote agribusinesses. These manuals provide detailed information on how to start and administer a co-operative.
