Background Information and History
"Villiersdorp Moskonfyt en Vrugtekoöperasie Beperk" was inaugurated on 28 January 1922 with the main purpose to produce "moskonfyt" (grape must jam). In 1980 the name was changed to Villiersdorp Co-operative Ltd and in 1990, after amalgamation with the Harmonie Co-op the trade name VILKO were generally in use.
In the early years the co-op’s main business was centred around the winery but nowadays deciduous fruit farming is the mainstream agricultural activity in our service areas.
Our core business is therefore mainly concentrated on value adding for its members by supplying farming requisites to the fruit farmers.
Villiersdorp Co-operative still owns a minority share in the Villiersdorp Winery.
Our vision is to enhance product and service delivery to the agricultural sector and thereby fulfil a value adding roll for our members so that every stakeholder can reap benefit on the long run from our existence.
