Title: Another new group for the coop
Post by: Wendy on October 23, 2015, 12:10:36 AM
The coop has continued to grow and both groups are now handling orders of around £4,000 every 6 weeks, so we're very happy to be able to announce the formation of a new group within the coop centred around Gouveia. From the New Year (2016) we will be moving to monthly orders, rotating between the 3 groups. At this point we're probably generating enough demand to be able to accommodate another group, so if there are any members who aren't particularly close to any of our groups (eg. Tábua area) who might be interested in setting up their own group, please get in touch. The idea would be to order no more frequently than monthly, but the 2 groups furthest away from each other would order at the same time.

All that's necessary for a new group to form is a sufficient number of local members to guarantee the £1,500 minimum per pallet every 3 months, volunteer(s) to collate and process the order and handle the payment to Essential, and volunteers to take delivery and divide everything up into the individual orders.
