Three Simple Steps for Retail Brands

Make the decision to engage in a managed supply chain

  • Advise us your company’s sustainability and animal welfare goals.
  • Provide us with an outline of your product categories and time-frames
  • Introduce us to your preferred spinner and knitter or weaver.
  1. Advise your spinner* that your are working with NewMerino® to provide a totally transparent supply chain.
  2. That you will require NewMerino® Transaction Certificates.
  3. That NewMerino® will be selecting and verifying the farmers from which the wool is to be sourced

* or your first point of contact in your supply chain

We are now on your team, working with your processing partners to ensure that your merino products will be:

  • Authentic
  • Ethically managed
  • Sustainably produced
  • Fully Traceable

100% Australian merino – and you will be able to prove it.

This is what we will do for you:

Develop lead time plan

In consultation with your spinner we will calculate shipping date ex Australia to meet processing lead times.

Develop Supply plan report

This report will:

  • Confirms supply chain partners
  • Confirm the attributes required
  • Identify a time line for greasy wool supply and tops and yarn production

Select supply

  • Identify and communicate with suitably qualified farmers.
  • Work with farmers to determine availability of technically suitable wool and compliance with standards and protocols.

Facilitate Purchase and Export

  • Work with topmaker and their Australian exporter to facilitate purchasing and export of greasy wool in accordance with specifications.

Provide Transaction Certificates

  • Greasy Wool Transaction Certificate
  • Topmaking Transaction Certificate
  • Spinning Transaction Certificate

Reporting

  1. We will keep you informed of progress at each stage.
  2. Provide you with a ‘Certificate of Origin & Attributes’. This report consolidates all key information about the consignment – the critical components for traceability. These include:
  • Contributing farmers and volumes from each farm.
  • Greasy wool consignment details providing weighted average of all farm lots included.
  • Names of all processing partners and shipping details.
  • Production details of tops and yarn

Additionally we will provide other relevant information you may require to develop your marketing story.
