Many companies have moved away or gone out of business. Is Federated Co-ops here for the long haul?

Since we’re locally owned by the people who do business with us, we’re not going to pick up and leave as soon as the economic winds change. Furthermore, Federated Co-ops is financially strong. In today’s economic turmoil, that’s reassuring to our customers who are now pre-paying farm inputs and energy products. Their money is safe with us. There is great security in knowing this company will be able to meet the needs of its customers because we have a firm financial foundation and because our purpose is to serve our customer-owners for as long as they need us. That’s the origin of the third part of our Brand Vision, which is also our Brand Promise: “Value for Life.”
