In 2002 the Syngenta Chemical Company through Mr. Monico Baustista conducted a six months Farmers training and 26 farmers were attended on the said training held at Benguet State University.
After graduation the graduates from Mallig, Isabela met at least once a month for closer bonding. After six months somebody suggested to form a cooperative, which proposal was unanimously agreed on June 30, 2003, an organizational meeting was held at Casili, Mallig, Isabela to organized a cooperative but it was not successful and they set another meeting on July 5, 2003. Finally, they formed an organization and elected their sets of officers.
It took almost two years before the documentary requirements of the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) was completed. On August 15, 2005, the documents of the cooperative were submitted to the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) Tuguegarao City and Finally issued the Certificate of Registration No. TUG 2248, and to start its operation as Multi-Purpose Cooperative Agri Based.
