A number of suppliers have already applied for their shares in the co-op and the first ones were issued following the January board meeting. We look forward to receiving more applications in February.
Two matters of clarification may be helpful:
- The application asks for certification of identity. While normally that would mean getting a JP, MP or other such person to verify your identity, for most walnut suppliers this is unnecessary. If you are personally known to one of the directors (board members) then you do not need to get the photocopies of your identity documents certified.
- For those who do need to get their copies of identity documents certified, they can go to a JP or a lawyer (or indeed an MP or various other legal people) and that person will sight the original document and sign the copy.
