I currently belong to the coop and enjoy the fresh produce and the hard working, caring staff. This coop represents the potential model for starting new cooperative adventures. I want to learn how being a coop affects workers and how they impact decision making within the organization. Your feedback is welcome, If you are retired plant manager or a unemployed person with simular experience we need your input. People with inventory and, or financial background can also help. If you have unused industrial space available, and you are interest loaning or leasing very cheap leasing that would good to know about. Community leaders and elected persons are also welcome. Send me a e- mail if you want to help with this project.
The French Broad Coop may want to add manufacturing to their mission statement. They may want a food manufacturing process. This is just a thought. It may already part of your statement.
