AUS: AWBC to lead non-English push
Australia's Wine and Brandy Corporation is to focus its efforts on non-English speaking countries.
Speaking at an industry forum, chief executive Sam Tolley said: "We've been hearing a message from the industry to shift focus more to embryonic and emerging markets and that's what we are currently doing."
Exports to the UK and US presently represent 67% of the total A$2.76bn market with English-speaking Canada and New Zealand ranking third and fourth. Germany is currently the prime non-English market in fifth place with relatively small annual sales of A$77m.
