Members of the Dutch feed company Agrifirm will receive an extra bonus of 1.5% of the total profit that they will generate with the cooperation. The money will be paid out every December, starting this year.
There is no
maximum and new members will build a credit from the time that they buy feed or
sell grain to Agrifirm.
“The reason for the introduction of this extra bonus (on
top of the standard member profit at the end of the year, dependent on the end
of year results) is because the company is doing very well, comments Loman”.
“Also 2007 was an excellent year, and we have looked for a fair way to share the
good results with the members of our firm”.
It has been the first
time that Agrifirm is using this member profit. According to Loman, Agrifirm is
also the first feed cooperation that is using such a system. Members are positive
and Loman expects to see an increase in new members the coming year, although
this has not been the reason for the company.
