A value-driven and principle-based approach is at the heart of all co-operatives. This is reflected across co-operative operations, clientele and members and is further encapsulated through the internationally agreed upon 7 principles that are embodied by all co-operatives across the globe.

While co-operatives are indeed independent business and therefore are formed and managed autonomously, unity amongst co-operatives is a hallmark of the co-operative model, encapsulated in the 6th such principle: Cooperation amongst co-operatives.

By working together through robust local and international structures, the strength of such a diverse network allows each co-operative to uniquely contribute its services as well as to allow for a combination of efforts with others to reach intended goals. Such a collaborative approach differs from other non-co-operative businesses who may be obliged to compete against one another for profit. Cooperation amongst co-operatives better serves not only members and clients, but allows for more effective contributions towards the economy as well as the community.

Koperattivi Malta’s celebrates their member co-operatives who exemplify the 6th Cooperative Principle: Outlook co-operative who have partnered up with Lync Cooperative as well as GreenPak Co-operative who will be working closely with Outnet Co-operative.

Collaboration works!
