Social Economy and the Cooperative Movement in Europe: Contributions to a New Vision of Agriculture and Rural Development in the Europe of The 27
This study deals with the most important features of European agricultural cooperatives and puts special emphasis on the business dimension as the key factor in their economic development. Cooperatives were subjected to a cluster analysis in order to classify them according to variables related to their commercial dimension, the key factor in competitiveness. They were also assessed for their main strengths and weaknesses with a view to the possibility of extending their activities to foreign markets, this being one of the main challenges they have to face in the current economic context.
