Introducing
MANAGEMENT OF MARKETING COOPERATIVES

Currently, marketing cooperatives are not running as businesses.  Thus, there is need to instill the business dimension so that they can be of value to farmers and other players in the economy.  The recent migration of cooperatives from Ministry of Agriculture to Commerce and Industry implies that many people need to be trained to reach the grass root users.  Well-functioning marketing cooperatives are income spinners for producers, and are vehicles for creating competitiveness in export markets.
