Purpose ‐ The purpose of this paper is to present the existing forms of collective action in the Greek agrifood sector and to focus on co-operatives, the dominant form of collective action in the agrifood sector of the North Aegean region. Design/methodology/approach ‐ The analysis is based on six contextual and behavioural conditions under which collective action may emerge. Findings ‐ This paper shows that very successful co-operatives, according to the six contextual and behavioural conditions, co-exist with unsuccessful ones, which are characterised by inflexibilities and inability to respond to a constantly changing market. Moreover, the legal status of some co-operatives (obligatory co-operatives) is of great interest. Originality/value ‐ This paper attempts to categorise existing forms of collective action in the Greek agrifood sector. Moreover, it gives information about the co-operatives of the North Aegean region, based on three research programmes that were conducted in the region.
