EU: Food co-ops should cooperate in cyberspace - Commission
Food industry cooperatives have been encouraged by the European Commission to use the Internet as a way of improving communications with fellow producers and processors, distributors and customers.

He said that the Commission was preparing a programme to encourage Internet use by food co-ops, with a policy document "Cooperatives in Enterprise Europe" being published this year.
