Limited Liability

The members of a producer company have unlimited liability as the company is an entity in itself. The amount invested in the business would be lost, and the directors' property would be safe.

Better Management

Rather than a single farmer managing their entire business, producer companies' work is divided among the directors. The entity is governed by the Management Board, which has a tenure of five years.

A producer company has a separate legal existence, which means that it is not affected by any of its members' death.
