The Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA) has merged five generic bodies and 15 wine importers to form a single panel to discuss trading issues and develop WSTA wine policy.

The formation of the new body, called the WSTA Wine Importers Panel, results in the consequent abolition of eight shippers committees. 

The WSTA said that the streamlining brings committees closer to WSTA members, making them more representative and responsive.

WSTA executive board member Patrick McGrath will chair the panel. He said: "The work of the Panel will be forward-looking and we will be proactively campaigning on behalf of the UK wine trade."

WSTA chief executive Jeremy Beadles said: "The creation of the WSTA Wine Importers Panel once again demonstrates our commitment to work on behalf of all of our members.  We now have a set of committees covering each of the sectors within our membership. 

"The WSTA Wine Importers Panel will be the forum for wine importers to discuss the issues that are of relevance to the sector and will provide one strong, clear voice for the wine trade."
