Dorchester's Farmers Cooperative One Of Nation's Largest Co-Ops
Dorchester's Farmers Cooperative is one of the nation's largest cooperatives. In fact, it's the 74th largest.
Nine Nebraska cooperatives have been ranked among the top 100 in the country based on revenue.
That's according to a report by National Cooperative Bank, as noted by the Lincoln Journal Star.
Ag Processing Inc. of Omaha was the largest co-op domiciled in Nebraska, and the seventh largest in the country, with 2013 revenue of $5.67 billion, up from $4.92 billion in 2012.
Affiliated Foods Midwest, a grocery co-op based in Norfolk, came in No. 34, one spot lower than in 2012.
It was the only non-agriculture related Nebraska co-op on the list.
