About the Noodle Co-op
Why a Co-op?
The Noodle Co-op was formed when a group of concerned noodle growers heard directly from customers of the need for a better noodle wheat industry. The Noodle Co-operative was registered in early 2016 with the WA Government and is a traditional non-distributing co-op with shares (common farmer style of co-op).
