What is a co-operative?

Here are three slightly different definitions: (this needs a bit of editing and styling and additional content??)

"A user owned and controlled business from which benefits are derived and distributed equitably on the basis of use."
from the United Stated Department of Agriculture
"An enterprise that has been freely established, is owned and controlled by a group of legal persons, for the purpose of equitably providing themselves with mutual benefits arising from the activities of the enterprise and not primarily from their investment in it."
from the Huia CDS website
"An autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise."
from the International Cooperative Alliance
