WFA-WISA Supplier Raw Material Quality Minimum Standard Product Information Declaration
WISA engages with a number of industry bodies to advocate and ensure the technical, business and commercial needs of Suppliers are recognised within industry. Recently WISA and the Winemakers’ Federation of Australia (WFA) have collaborated to create a harmonised Supplier Raw Material Quality Minimum Standard Product Information Declaration form. Endorsed by WFA and WISA this form summarises the information that Suppliers of raw materials (additives and processing aids) hold in order to provide evidence of meeting the minimum requirement for food safety, quality and traceability of those raw materials. Moreover, this is a harmonised form that can be used across industry as the first step to meet the needs of those selling and purchasing such raw materials.
WISA and the WFA recommend the adoption of this document across industry.
