Five Types of Cooperatives

 
There are 5 different types of cooperatives:
  • Consumer: owned by consumers who buy goods or services from their cooperative
  • Producer: owned by producers of commodities or crafts who have joined forces to process and market their products
  • Worker: owned and democratically governed by employees who become co-op members
  • Purchasing: owned by independent businesses or municipalities to improve their purchasing power
  • Hybrid: a combination of co-op types, where people with common interests band together.
