Aurora: a cooperative that went big

Altogether 2.7 million pigs slaughtered; 258,600 tonnes of fresh and 225,200 tonnes of processed pig products; 9,200 direct jobs and 46,000 indirect. That was the Aurora pig sector in 2006, a union of 17 food sector co-ops which in 36 years, has grown to become Brazil's third largest company in the pig sector and the third largest co-op overall.
