About the Co-Op

We give Australian merino growers a voice in the global marketplace by interacting directly with brands and end consumers.

 

The world is changing, and so is our industry. Currently, we tend to lose visibility of our merino wool once it leaves the farm gate. We rarely have a say as to how it is marketed or sold, even though our merino wool ultimately becomes some of the most luxurious and functional products in the world.

To address this, the Co-Op has come together to promote Australia’s farm practices, to demonstrate the care and welfare we have for our animals, to share our commitment to land management, and to continually reinvest in sustainable and productive practices for future generations.

Join the grower’s Co-Op and gain a voice in the global wool industry. Help us share our stories with an engaged and interested consumer – a consumer who deserves to know where and how their merino wool is grown.
