Business Council of Co−operatives and Mutuals

THIS IS SOCIAL BUSINESS
The BCCM is the peak body for co-operatives and mutuals in Australia. Co-ops and mutuals are member-owned businesses that trade for surplus to fulfil their purpose. They are social businesses because they put people, not profit, at the centre of the enterprise.
