THE WINE INDUSTRY VALUE CHAIN ROUND TABLE (WIVCRT)

WHAT

The WIVCRT is a partnership between government, the wine industry as well as labour and civil society groups. The aim of the WIVCRT is to foster collaborative industry-government actions that help to secure an enduring competitive advantage of the wine industry. The WIVCRT is envisaged to involve all critical role players within the entire wine value chain.

The WIVCRT will, amongst others, influence policy and strategy development, contribute to the development of joint solutions to respond to industry challenges, provide a platform to jointly address food safety, employment and labour issues, jointly advocate for market access and improved trade conditions and guide and direct scientific research.
