La Coop fédérée is present throughout the agri-food chain and, as a retailer, it provides farmers with the necessary goods and services for operating their enterprises, including energy, hardware and farm machinery supplies. Its network includes six brands: Elite and La Coop (livestock and crop production, and grains) BMR and Unimat (hardware and farm machinery), Sonic (energy) and Olymel (meat processing).
The objective for the group sow barn project is to create wealth for its producer-members by being involved in different links of the value chain.
