Our mission is to maintain a leadership role in the marketing of raw cotton produced by members to the textile market on a worldwide basis, operating with a high degree of integrity while maximizing returns to members.
Calcot is a cooperative, meaning it's a company that is owned by those who use its products or services.
Calcot is a true democratic cooperative: each member has one vote, regardless of business or farm size, acreage or production. The members elect a board of directors, who set policy for the organization. The directors also hire one employee, chief executive officer (president), who hires everyone else. We are very grower-focused, but recognize our chief function is to add value through sales and service to growers' production and return as much of the final sales price to our grower-owners as possible.
