Since 1962, the Secretariat has been working on behalf of both Copa and Cogeca. It ensures that the two organisations function smoothly and efficiently and that decisions taken by the Copa and Cogeca Praesidia are implemented.

The Secretariat is made up of approximately 50 members of staff of different nationalities. It provides its national member organisations and European cooperatives with continuous analysis, communication and expert knowledge. To this end, it prepares hundreds of Working Party meetings, reports, working documents and position papers every year. You can find our annual work overview by following this link.
