The Ziri Farming Cooperative was founded in 1948 around the purchase of agricultural and forestry products. Over the course of decades the company has evolved and adapted to new technologies, production practices, and the ever-changing business environment.
Since our very beginnings and up until very recently, banking represented a major component in the company’s business equation; in 2002 all of these operations were assumed by NKBM Bank.
