April 17, 2024

New Zealand’s wool industry is getting a boost in front of an international audience.

Associate Agriculture Minister Mark Patterson is speaking at the International Wool Textile Organisation Congress in Adelaide, promoting the sector and outlining the Coalition Government’s support for revitalising it.

Campaign for Wool Trustee Sandra Faulkner told Mike Hosking that it’s fantastic to have a minister who is publicly backing New Zealand farmers and what they produce.

She said that with the focus on moving away from plastic products, it’s all about going back to the basics, getting out there, and celebrating the industry.

Faulkner said that at the moment it’s a pretty competitive industry and some structures will need to be changed, and she holds hope that this Government will be able to do so.
