WHAT IS THE STAPLE GOODS PROJECT?
The Nation of Islam Ministry of Agriculture (NOIMOA), organized our efforts and in 2011 began the cooperative purchase and distribution of staple goods. Adopting the “Cooperative Corporation” philosophy, each local Ministry of Agriculture Staple Goods Coordinator works to service their respective area.
Some of the goals for this type of cooperative economic system includes: 1. Participants are learning the process of bulk purchasing and cross country distribution, 2. They are learning the inner workings of national production, manufacturing and distribution systems, 3. They are learning and practicing principles of cooperative economics, 4. Collective decision making, 5. Group investing and operational unity.
