The International Bulk Wine and Spirits Show (IBWSS
) comes to London in February 2018, providing a premier platform for multiple grocers, retailers, restaurants, wineries, distilleries and other buyers to source bulk wine and spirits, meet leading private label and bulk wine suppliers as well as uncover the latest trends and opportunities for profitability and growth.
“Keeping on top of bulk wine trends and opportunities is going to become increasingly more important for major UK on-trade buyers and suppliers” (The Buyer, 2017).
As a major bulk wine importer, bottler and supplier of branded and private label wines, Broadland Wineries
is looking forward to exhibiting and speaking at the show, with CEO and owner Mark Lansley discussing strategies that retailers can use to increase profits and bring efficiencies in their bulk and private label supply chain. Our Master of Wine Dr Arabella Woodrow, and other members of the Broadland team will also be available to discuss how companies in the UK on-trade and off-trade can take advantage of bulk wine to engage their customers and grow sales and profitability through UK packed exclusive labels.
“Own label made up 52% of total grocery sales over Christmas 2017, growing more than twice as fast as brands" (Kantar Worldpanel 4 weeks ending 31st December 2017).
Through a series of TED-style talks, workshops and master classes, retail buyers entering the private label market for the first time will learn how to define their proposition, discover what customers are looking for, gain competitor insight, maximise ROI, and spot and recognise new trends as some of the industry’s top thinkers take the stage.
“The growth of the private label and bulk wine market is one of the most important trends in the wine and spirits industry and has important implications for anyone involved in the sector” (IBWSS, 2018)
Broadland Wineries currently supplies some of the biggest and most successful wholesalers and wine retailers in the country, right through to some of the smallest with private label continuing to see strong overall growth as businesses look to differentiate their product offering by developing exclusive product ranges.
