Members are entitled to vote at meetings of the co-operative and are eligible to receive benefits which are specified in the rules of the co-operative, and services provided by Cotswold Taste.
Many businesses and organisations provide services to the members and potential members of Cotswold Taste, which support and promote them in their activities and operations.
