Andrew Hogley, CEO, British Wool said: “The restructuring programme announced earlier in the year will have no negative impact on the service we offer producers and we have opened a number of new collection sites this season including in the Southern Scotland region. Also, in order to support our service offering we are abolishing onward carriage fees at all of our collection sites from this season.”
