In this paper we analyse the relations between the structure of Inter-organisational Information Systems (IOIS) and the structure of integration formulas in the case of olive oil cooperatives in Spain. The relationship between the two structures tends to be established within a collaborative framework in which the IOIS serves the objectives of said integration, thereby reinforcing the links that bind the cooperative’s members. However, in this article we also suggest that there may be a noncollaborative (i.e., competitive) relationship between the IOIS and cooperative integration, especially when the two structures compete for companies in the same sector and geographical area. To test our hypotheses we have analysed a sample of 162 companies belonging to olive oil cooperatives in Spain.
