A CALL TO THE BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

We’re globally renowned for our wine, craft beer and water, but what about other beverages? New Zealand spends more than $1.2 billion a year on non-alcoholic cold beverages, consuming well over 650 million litres of soft drinks, fruit juice, bottled water, sports and energy drinks, and flavoured milk annually. Add in tea and coffee, and it’s clear why more than 100 New Zealand companies are involved in manufacturing and importing cold beverages. So what do we know about the beverage market here? Do you know, for instance, that New Zealand has a premium tea-growing facility in the Waikato exporting all over the world? Or a company that makes beverages that are a fusion of Asian and Maori herbal ingredients?

Next month, we’ll be transforming our WineTech and BrewTech sections into DrinkTech in this magazine to showcase these kind of stories – along with industry opinion, overseas news and case studies – to people who need to know…our readers. We feel it’s important to celebrate all aspects of the burgeoning beverage market, and to be its new voice. If you’d like to share your story, news and achievements, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Have a great early autumn.
