Abstract:It can be expected that co-operatives which are responsible mainly for the marketing and distribution of foodstuffs in Nigeria will handle a considerable proportion of the products of the Green Revolution Programme which is expected to lead to substantial increases in food supply within the next few years. It is assumed that these societies need a much stronger financial base than the existing consumer co-operatives. In this paper, the need for providing for the marketing of agricultural products in agricultural and national planning is examined. Attention is focussed on the role co-operatives can play in the marketing of food crops, drawing from the experience of existing agricultural marketing co-operatives. Next co-operatives financing in Kwara State is analysed. Finally a strategy of co-operative food marketing financing, including forms and sources of finance, is developed. Notes, sum. (in French).
