Farmers’ collective action which translates in the form of cooperatives, producers’ organizations and associations or self-help groups has proven to be one viable solution to achieving food security and eradicating hunger in the world. These organizations, when they are efficient and equitable (that is, inclusive and gender sensitive) are a proven means to increase the productivity of agriculture while responding to social and environmental demands. In this way, such organizations become the expression of jointly owned, democratically controlled and membership-driven enterprises, where generating profit goes alongside satisfying members’ needs and aspirations. In other words, they become organizations at the service of their members.
