COMPANY FORMED.

A meeting was held yesterday to discuses the formation of a co operative butter factory in Akaroa.

After discussion, it was .jresolved that a company be formed, to be called the Akaroa Co-operative Butter Fac tory, Limited, with a capital of £2000 with £1 shares.

Provisional directors wereappointed, and it was resolved to make applications for suppliers of cream.

A number of dairy farmers have agreed to supply cream, and when the number is up to 400 cows, the com pany will be put into operation.

It is expected that the company will make a start on September Ist next.

An up to date plant will be erected under tbe advice and guidance of a Government dairy inspector.

Mr G. W. Thoma3, who has been appointed secretary pro tern, can give any further information to anyone prepared to supply cream.

This project was started some years ago, but only l lso cows could be guaranteed. The land then was not so valuable, and consequently cocksfoot and sheep were more profitable. Now that the price of land has advanced so much a much better return has to be obtained to get interest on the land, and milking cows is tho best way.

It is probable that the extension of the factory will include bacon curing.
