We get our clients great audit scores so they start supplying their new customers in as little as 10 weeks.

What is WQA

The WQA quality standard was developed by Woolworths after the Garibaldi small goods incident in South Australia in 1995. It was the first standard to be released in Australia by a major supermarket.

The latest version of the Woolworths standard, WQAv8, was released earlier this year, with suppliers required to be up to date by July 2015.

Who uses the WQA standard?

Certification of the WQA standard is required by food businesses supplying private label to Woolworths. Direct fruit and vegetable suppliers are also required to be WQA certification. Indirect fruit and vegetable suppliers are required to have Fresh care certification.

How often are WQA audits?

Depending on prior performance, the Woolworths/WQAv8 audits are 6 monthly. It is the responsibility of the vendor to book quality audits with the certification body and to maintain Woolworths/WQAv8certification.
