UNITING ALL AUSTRALIAN
CO-OPERATIVES + MUTUALs

Our Members

BCCM members are leading Australian co-operatives and mutuals from all industries, including peak bodies and household names in agriculture, health, housing and education. Many started because the market couldn’t adequately meet community needs, and some have existed for more than 150 years. 

BCCM members provide employment across regional and metropolitan Australia, cementing fairness and equity in market supply chains. Co-operatives and mutuals support their community beyond donations and sponsorships – for every dollar spent, it’s estimated 76 cents is recycled within the local community.

Capricorn

Capricorn Society

Capricorn began in 1970 when 12 West Australian service station owners combined their purchasing power to attempt to level the playing field with the big multinational oil companies. With pooled resources, they were able to buy competitively priced goods and service benefits. Today, Capricorn is Australasia’s largest co-operative in the automotive parts buying industry, with 17,000 purchasing members across Australia and New Zealand, 2,000 of which supply goods and services to other members. Its member-focussed integrated business support includes equipment finance, travel services and business protection.
