Ethiopian delegation on working visit

19 March 2014
Cosun welcomed a senior delegation from Ethiopia on 17 March 2014 during a study trip to the Netherlands. The trip took cooperative enterprise as its theme.  The delegation was headed by the Minister of Agriculture, Tefera Derbew, who showed a great deal of interest in the cooperative form of business.

The leading figures in the Ethiopian farming industry had come to the Netherlands for inspiration because our country has a flourishing and successful agricultural sector and many cooperatives, especially in agriculture. The delegation wanted to know everything about management and business models, financing and member relations. Cosun enjoyed sharing its knowledge and experience with ambitious, like-minded people who want to develop their country and economy.

The delegation also visited the Rabobank, CZAV, Flora Holland and Friesland Campina cooperatives as well as Cosun during its visit.
