The Greiggs Multi-Farming Cooperative Society Limited (GREMCO) and the Greiggs Rastafarian Progressive Multi-Purpose Cooperative Society Limited (RASFARCO) were launched on September 6.
These two cooperatives are part of the project to Strengthen Farmers’ Organizations and to improve Fruit and Vegetable Production Technology.
The project was made possible through the assistance of the International Cooperative Development Fund (ICDF) program.
The launching ceremony took place on the Greiggs playing field, and featured addresses from the presidents of both cooperatives- Ray Baptiste of GREMCO and Alvin Collins of RASFARCO.
Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan) His Excellency Baushuan Ger also addressed the gathering along with Minister with responsibility for Cooperatives, Frederick Stevenson.
The feature address was delivered by Area Representative and Minister of Agriculture Saboto Caesar, who encouraged both Co-operatives to continue “their good work” moving forward.
The offices of the two cooperatives are located on the ground floor of the Greiggs Community Center.
GREMCO and RASFARCO are the two first cooperatives to move into fully equipped offices under the ICDF project.
