The Wool Integrity™ Programme is designed to provide assurances to the International market place around important consumer expectations such as Animal Welfare and Environmental Sustainability, Traceability, Wool Quality, Health Safety & Wellbeing, and Social Compliance.
A founding principle is that all grower members abide by the Internationally recognised 5 freedoms of animal welfare.
Established in 2015 the Wool Integrity™ programme is a promise to parties within the wool supply chain that a quality, sustainable and ethically produced product will be delivered on time, every time. We believe our New Zealand farmer members of the programme who caringly grow their wool, adhere to some of the best farming practices in the world.
The Wool Integrity program monitors wool at every stage of its journey from farm to market and offers full traceability of each lot to its originating farm.
End users and products
All wool types can be directly supplied as greasy, scoured or combed wool. Spinner brand partners are also able to provide manufacturers with Wool Integrity branded yarn suitable for a wide range of products. Finished products made from Wool Integrity NZ™ branded wool are eligible to carry the Wool Integrity NZ™ logo free of charge. This ingredient brand could sit alongside a company’s own brand, providing a value-added endorsement of genuine integrity or it can just provide background comfort if supply chains come under scrutiny.
