Co-ops are run by, and for, the members, to realise economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations that they share. Co-op members share equal voting rights regardless of the amount of capital they put into the enterprise.
SAOS itself is a co-op, owned by our member co-op businesses across Scotland. We’ve set up and worked with Scotland’s farming and rural co-ops since 1905.
