Australian Wool Innovation rejects AWGA allegations

April 09, 2008 - Australia

Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) has labelled the latest press release from the Australian Wool Growers Association (AWGA) as being completely irrational and poorly researched.

An AWI spokesperson said “AWI is not funding members of the Australian Wool and Sheep Industry Taskforce to attend next week’s IWTO meeting in Beijing or any industry farming organisations to attend.

“One can only conclude that Mr Oppenheimer seeks to confuse and deliberately mislead woolgrowers with unprecedented personal abusive attacks on an industry leader and an AWI company official.
