Grain Tavastia cooperative

Grain Tavastia cooperative is a company owned by Finnish grain farmers. The cooperative’s field of activity is the procurement of grain and its marketing.

The objective of the cooperative’s activity is to enhance its farmers’ negotiation status in the grain market. In addition, the goal is to improve contract dealings between its farmers and the representatives of industry. The aim of the activity is also to find export channels for high-quality Finnish grain.

Grain Tavastia cooperative was founded on the 21st of September 2016. Support from the Central Union of Agricultural Producers and Forest Owners (MTK) in Finland has been significant in the early stages of Grain Tavastia’s activity.

At the moment the cooperative has over 480 farmer members whose total surface area under cultivation is about 60000 hectares. The membership count is rising at an even pace. The goal in the near years to come is to obtain at least a thousand active grain producers as new members.
