This study was undertaken by the EU- SA Partners for Growth project to explore the potential contribution of EU businesses in the wool and cotton value chains in South Africa. Developments in the natural fibres sector in South Africa have progressed in line with the industry shift in the EU, as far as sustainability credentials and traceability are concerned. There are specific opportunities which the study has identified which have the potential to increase early processing capacity in SA and enhance the appeal of SA fibres to EU retail brands. These opportunities are explored in greater detail in the study, which was authored by Beni Letebele.
