Partners already identified?

Should you wish to collaborate with others to achieve scale (eg joint selling/ buying, sharing premises etc), and have already identified partners, a consortium co-operative structure may provide the perfect platform. This low risk, non beurocratic approach preserves the independence of members, and decisions are make on an equal basis.

Co-operative Development Scotland offers support and advice to help establish a consortium co-operative.
