son caractère identitaire

Can anyone tell me what
son caractère identitaire means? I don't think I have it quite right.

A l’avenir, la coopérative Los Andes ... devra trouver un équilibre entre son expansion et son caractère identitaire.

My attempt:

In the future, the LOS ANDES cooperative ... must find a balance between expansion and its identity.

Many thanks,
