The Riverland’s largest grape growing co-operative has seen a number of key personnel changes, with some suggestion of unrest within the co-op grower member community.

Recently the long standing CCW co-op recently saw an exodus of senior management as well as a change of chairman, with former chair Peter Hill resuming the chair position.

It’s understood CCW is holding a series of grower meetings across the region this week to address a number of topics including staff changes as well as future direction.

The grower’s co-op which dates back over 100 years is one of Australia’s largest, sitting in the top 20 for total turnover.

The news comes at a concerning time for the wine industry with trade export tensions and some suggestion grape prices could drop.
