Community & Sponsorship

Yenda Producers Co-operative Society has been proudly associated with the Riverina community since the 1920s. We have a long history of support for local charities, schools, sporting groups and educational foundations. We see this as a way of contributing and giving back to the community where most of our customers and staff live and work.
