The Algoma Sheep and Lamb Producer’s vision is that co-operation can be profitable. It is this outlook which prompted them to ask NORDIK to investigate the local lamb and chevon market. NORDIK will determine the feasibility of a market-based co-operative for lamb and goat producers in the Algoma District. The project will analyze an increased local ethnic market, and the increasing demands of health-conscious consumer diets. If feasible, the study would help local lamb and goat producers’ better coordinate, process, and market their products.
