WHY CO-OP

The key differences between a co-operative and a company show that both business structures have their benefits, however the following reasons make a co-operative structure the best choice for Yenda Producers.

All co-operatives are generally governed by the same seven core principles, which were adopted by the International Co-operative Alliance in 1995. The principles, listed within Section 10 of the Co-operative Nation Law, are:

  1. Voluntary and Open Membership;
  2. Democratic Member Control;
  3. Member Economic Participation;
  4. Autonomy and Independence;
  5. Education, Training and Information;
  6. Co-operation among Co-operatives;
  7. Concern for the Community.

Membership Benefits

Joining the Yenda Producers Co-operative is a low-cost, mutually beneficial choice. As a member, you are part of the success of the Yenda Prods and in return you share in that success. The interconnected journey of the Co-op ensures that members have an opportunity to contribute to and shape their Co-op.

Financial Benefits

YPC has historically paid its members a rebate and dividend. The level of benefit is directly related to the performance of the Co-op in any financial year. Since 2011, shareholders have received an annual return of 2% rebate and 5% dividend. Recently, there has been only one year in which a rebate was not paid. This was in 2003 and was directly attributed to the drought.

Buying Power & Discounts

YPC has direct accounts with all major suppliers for fertiliser and chemicals. This allows members to source almost all products at a competitive price, equal to if not better than national sized competitors.

Support Local

As a member-based business, YPC recognises that the majority of its owners live locally. Thus, the Co-op supports numerous community groups through donation of services (e.g. spreading of fertiliser for local sporting grounds), financial support through sponsorship, and providing donations for fundraising activities.
