National Agricultural Co-operatives Roundtable

07 March 2023

The BCCM has established Australia’s first national network of agricultural co-operatives to promote information sharing, shared learning and problem solving.

There are more than 220 agricultural co-ops in Australia supporting more than 24,000 Australian farming businesses who are their members. Agricultural co-ops operate in most sectors of primary production. What they all have in common is their business model and the legal and regulatory regime in which they operate. By working together, agricultural co-ops can improve the operating environment for their businesses and advocate for enabling laws and programs.

The Roundtable meets twice a year, including once during the BCCM’s annual Leaders’ Summit. In 2023, this will be held on 25–26 October in Brisbane.

Interested in learning more about how to get involved in the Roundtable? Please contact the convenor Clare Fountain.
