Indage UK has signed a deal to bottle Foster's wine brands, according to an unconfirmed report.

Indage UK, a division of Indian wine giant Indage Vintners, previously Champagne Indage, has secured a deal to bottle wine for Foster's East Europe and Middle East (EEMD), according to a report in India's Economic Times today (12 January).

Spokespeople for Foster's and Indage in the UK were unavailable when contacted by just-drinks.

Indage UK bought UK firm Corby Bottlers and sister group Darlington Wines last year, rescuing the two groups from administration.

Indage recently entered talks to buy UK-based Broadland Wineries, but a source familiar with negotiations told just-drinks last week that a deal has fallen through, principally because Indage was unable to raise the necessary funds.
