Organisation & Structure

The Federation of Migros Cooperatives is a cooperative association as defined by Art. 921 et seq. OR. Together with the affiliated regional Cooperatives, the companies that belong to them and the foundations, it makes up the Migros Community, or simply Migros.

Legal form & mission

The Federation of Migros Cooperatives (FMC) coordinates the activities of Migros, determines its strategy and represents the Migros Community to the outside world. As a Migros service provider, it is responsible for covering the needs of the regional Cooperatives through a system of combined purchasing and production, as well as by establishing or acquiring participatory interests and subsidiary companies of all kinds.

The organs of the FMC are the Assembly of Delegates, the Board of Directors, the Executive Board and the Board of Control.

In accordance with the statutes, the shares that do not represent participation certificates were underwritten on the basis of the annual retail sales. The number of shares acquired by the Cooperatives is based on the conditions in 1957. As it was no longer necessary to issue new shares to raise finance for the FMC, and because the voting rights are exercised independently of the share distribution, the Board of Directors decided not to change anything and has retained the original distribution from 1957.

Liability for the obligations of the FMC is limited to its assets.
