The growers cooperative supports responsible animal and landscape management and does so by leveraging a high standard for the wool industry, the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS).

Our goal is to lift management standards and make Australian wool competitive in the current marketplace which demands verifiable credentials.

The Responsible Wool Standard is our starting point as we work to harmonise all processing, brand and industry standards for a streamlined approach to benefit our members.

Imagine just one set of farm management practices aligned to whatever standard you require and facilitated by a single set of data capture tools.

Funding support

The Australia Ethical Merino Growers Co-Op Ltd has been funded by the Federal Governments Farming Together program. The Farm Co-operative and Collaboration Program (known as Farming Together) is a two-year, $13.8m initiative from the Australian Government designed to help agricultural groups value-add, secure premium pricing, scale-up production, attract capital investment, earn new markets or secure lower input costs.

The Farm Co-operative and Collaboration Program is being delivered by Southern Cross University on behalf of the Australian Government. It comprises a highly experienced senior team drawn from a wide range of commodity groups from across Australia and is backed by an industry advisory group representing experts from Western Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and NSW.
