CountryMark's Co-op System

 
Local ownership, local impact
Unlike most other fuel refiners, CountryMark is a cooperative business. CountryMark is owned and controlled by CountryMark member cooperatives. Each member co-op, in turn, is owned and controlled by farmers, or local agricultural producers.

While co-op members are also customers, the cooperative’s products and services are available to the public. You need not be a member to do business with a cooperative.

Once the cooperative’s financial obligations are met, profits are returned to members in the form of equity or cash refund payments called patronage. This patronage is distributed in proportion to the volume of business a person does with the co-op. In other words, the profits of CountryMark remain in local communities where the dollars support local economies.

CountryMark supplies fuel to member cooperatives in Indiana that distribute this premium quality fuels through a network of more than 100 retail fuel stations, as well as more than 200 petroleum tankwagon and transport routes. CountryMark Advantage Lubricants are distributed to member cooperatives in Indiana and Ohio.

Through this distribution network, CountryMark fuels and lubricants are delivered daily to individuals, companies, farms and government entities throughout Indiana and neighboring states.
 
CountryMark products fuel an estimated 65-70% of Indiana farmers and power about 50% of the buses that deliver children to school each day within the CountryMark trade area.
 
CountryMark is committed to providing a reliable source of high quality fuels and lubricants to local cooperatives who, in turn, deliver products to their customers with exceptional service.
