Your services


The mission of the Consortium de ressources et d’expertises coopératives is to provide its members, who are mainly groups of cooperatives, with professional services for a fair price. The Consortium responds to the needs of its members and contributes to achieving their missions, optimizing their operations, participating in the development of their businesses, and improving the services they offer.

The Consortium does not replace existing groups. These groups represent and serve their members, define their leadership, and animate the community life in their field. Similarly, the structure and governance of the groups (general meetings, administrative board, board of directors, committees and more) remain unchanged. The Consortium is a powerful tool box for the groups and their members.
