24.7.16 Jerez Cooperatives May Join D Coop

The seven cooperatives of the Sherry zone are in “very satisfactory” talks with a view to joining D Coop, Andalucía’s largest "super" cooperative, based in Antequera (Málaga) but with members all over Spain. D Coop is a group of cooperatives specialising in the production and marketing of olives (it is the world’s largest olive oil producer), cereals meat and wine. The Jerez coops control 55% of the annual Sherry production, and it is hoped that they can sell more wine direct to market, reduce costs and gain the power to have more control over grape prices.
