On February 2, 2016 the Council of the Malta Co-operative Federation approved two newly registered co-operative societies as new Member Societies of the Federation.
The co-operatives are:
Koperattiva Youtheme Ltd and Tourist Information and Services Co-op Ltd
The CEO of the Federation, Mr Rolan Micallef Attard welcomed the co-operative societies to the Federation. Mr Micallef Attard expressed his satisfaction that potential co-operative societies are seeking the assistance of the Malta Co-operative Federation through the now proven start-up hand-holding service which commenced in 2013, soon after the Federation’s inception. The CEO stressed the fact that this MCF service offered to potential cooperators is not being funded by the Central Co-operative Fund Committee which decision has been backed by the Central Co-operative Fund (Provisional Board).
