Drafting a constitution

The board is leaning strongly toward a co-operative company as the best structure for the new entity, though began its work with an open mind on possible company structures. We are currently working on drafting a Constitution for an industry-owned co-op.

The board is aware that some smaller growers are worried the process of involvement in an industry-owned processing business will be complicated and costly for them. The board is aiming to make involvement as simple as possible and would ideally like to see these growers become shareholders. However, we do plan to make it possible for growers with small volumes of crop to sell to the factory even if they choose not to become shareholders, though we are still working out the conditions of supply.
