The Fleurieu Community Co-operative has been created to ensure a
solution for meat processing and supply for the Fleurieu Peninsula community in South
Australia, including through re-opening the Strathalbyn abattoir.
The actual year instead of using the term last year, its importance in ensuring the region's growth and prosperity has only become more evident. The re-opened abattoir will have a strong focus on serving the needs of the community by providing efficient, quality, local service at a reasonable price. It will also be fully technology-enabled from the outset, to facilitate ease of booking and payment – and to enable ‘paddock-to-plate’-type offerings, and the creation of premium, local products and brands.
It will also operate on the basis of a co-operative model. The Fleurieu Community Co-operative will be run by the community, for the community. Anyone who will use the services of the co-operative, or supply goods or services to it, can apply to become a member of the co-operative, including agricultural producers, butchers, supermarkets and restaurants. There will also be a range of member benefits, including the opportunity to invest.
