In 1966, after a period of inactivity, it was rebuilt and became a total of 21 members. It is in this deed that the building in Plaça Ramon Felip was acquired for one million pesetas.

In 1976, due to space, they were forced to make new extensions and part of the current land was acquired. In 1979, the first cold rooms were built and the cooperative expanded its existing facilities and machinery.

The merger between the two existing cooperatives, La Germanor and l’Agrícola d’Albatàrrec, took place around 1992, a merger that was discussed at the extraordinary session held on April 2. in 1992, and approved on May 22 of the same year. The members that were in the Brotherhood at that time, a total of 63 became part of the cooperative becoming a total of 179 members.

Over the years the cooperative has been expanding its facilities as well as renovating the machinery to improve competitiveness and always offer the best quality.

Between 2007 and 2009, the logistics redistribution project was carried out, in which the new offices were built, the phytosanitary products warehouse, the renovation of sorting machines, as well as the improvement of the gas station to self-supply the members.
