After months of planning and feedback from the industry, the Drinks Association is proud to present the new-look Drinks Trade magazine.
The Drinks Trade team has worked tirelessly to bring you this contemporary update, which combines investigative, informative and engaging content with has a broader industry focus.
"It has been an exciting journey to this point, and we are proud as punch with the result," said editor Melissa Parker.
"We have introduced new sections addressing traditional beverage categories and brought you insights, interviews and information covering retail formats including, online, travel, off-premise and on-premise."
The Drinks Association launched Drinks Trade 12 years ago and it is recognised as the leading industry beverage publication in Australia. The magazine is committed to being the number one resource for industry news and information via its online resource drinkstrade.com.au, and through the print edition.
The re-imagined Drinks Trade kicks off with the top trending stories for the quarter from drinkstrade.com.au, and then moves into interviews, features, reports into industry trends and insights.
