Australian wineries can now improve their techniques and practices, reducing costs and improving productivity following the launch of the new Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA) ‘Lean’ Guide for the wine industry.

‘Lean’ is a system of tools and practices that help businesses to use less human effort, space, capital, material and time. The Lean Guide: A Primer on Lean Production for the Australian Wine Industry (access online) is a user-friendly, simple guide interpreting the ‘Lean’ technique for wineries.
