The site is intended to provide essential information and contacts to anyone who wishes to learn more about the co-operative model of business, and to those who are interested in setting up a co-operative.
The website also aims to promote the co-operative principles and to provide an important link between its member societies, to enable them to be in a better position to work effectively and co-operatively.
CEO Rolan Micallef Attard explained that it was essential for the development of the co-operative movement in Malta to make available current information on the co-operative business option. The website contains information about the advantages of setting up worker, service, consumer, social and producer co-operatives. It also offers expert advice on a myriad of co-operative matters and shall act as a business networking catalyst. The Federation’s membership requirements are also available on-line.
