Supply Chain

AWI’s Processing Innovation & Education Extension team invests in the research and development of product and processing innovations throughout the supply chain.

Its key objective is to increase the profitability and sustainability of the wool processing and manufacturing supply chain and educate students, trade and retailers about the benefits of Australian wool. Developing innovative ways to work with wool can be a achieved in two ways, either by AWI's in-house technical team, or by collaborating with supply chain partners including machinery suppliers. AWI also invests in the education of students, the trade and retailers on the characteristics of the wool fibre and the many possibilities of production and end use of Australian wool products and processes.
