Centennial celebrations for MFA cooperatives

October is Co-op Month, celebrated nationwide to spotlight the many ways coop­eratives create shared prosperity for their members and communities. MFA was organized as a cooperative in 1914 by a visionary group of farmers who recognized the benefit of working together to leverage buying power and their collective voices. MFA continues to operate un­der that business model today, with an extensive network of company-owned retail facilities and local affiliate co-ops serving some 45,000 farmer-owners in Missouri and surrounding states.

Co-op Month is the perfect time to congratulate MFA’s local cooperative affiliates for reach­ing milestone anniversaries. Six are celebrating 100 years of service in 2020:
