The President of the South Windward Action Producers Co-operative, Chezley Scipio has welcomed the move towards the establishment of more Farmers Co-operatives here.

Mr. Scipio spoke on the benefits to be derived from co-operatives, during his remarks at the launch of the Co-operative Farmers Market at Heritage Square this month.
