COOPERATIVES IN NUMBERS

STATISTICAL DATA ON COOPERATIVES IN CROATIA
The procedure for cooperative establishment includes the requirement that every newly established cooperative is obliged to be registered with the Croatian Association of Cooperatives. Pursuant to that information, the Croatian Association of Cooperatives keeps statistical records of cooperatives registered in the Republic of Croatia. The status of 31 October 2012 shows that 950 active cooperatives are registered with the Croatian Association of Cooperatives, but that datum does not reveal the real status. In fact, every day, the
Croatian Association of Cooperatives are sent data on cooperatives harmonized with the new Cooperative Act by competent commercial courts and the procedure of their recording is still in progress.

When it comes to cooperative types, there are four main types of cooperatives :

  • war veteran cooperatives (BZ)
  • agricultural cooperatives (PZ)
  • production-service providing cooperatives (PUZ)
  • social cooperatives (SZ)

The table on the next page displays the total number of registered cooperatives which are harmonized with the new Cooperative Act and entered in the records of the Croatian Association of Cooperatives as of 31 October 2012.godine.
