Industry Groups

VIANZ is being established to engage with policy makers so that the industry can lead rather than react to events and regulation. It is our ambition that in the technical areas of product formulation, the VRA and Ministry will see us as subject matter experts. Our advice will be focussed on making things better by harnessing the energy of our members to create expert panels.
