Saving the planet one drink at a time… For the last Annual Drinks Guide we reported on diversity and inclusion in the drinks business. We looked at pro-active initiatives developed to cultivate a fairer and equitable working environment for our industry. We highlighted that research shows companies with diverse teams outperform those without, and diversity and inclusion increases productivity, creativity and job satisfaction. The Australian liquor industry is on the front foot when it comes to issues that matter, and we have learned the same about our focus in this edition, that of sustainability and the environment. This year, rather than looking at what is going on within our walls, we are addressing what is happening around us. Whether you believe it is a result of human activity or not, climate change is a hot topic. It is evident the world’s delicate state has been thrown off balance and the forecast consequences are dire if we don’t take action. The alcoholic drinks industry is at the front line with the changes to the climate as it has an immediate effect on the cultivation of grapes and grain. The lifecycle of our products forces us to consider water security and efficiency, energy sources and efficiency, waste output, packaging production, recycling, and the reduction of litter. What we do to improve our carbon footprint is an important step towards a sustainable future, not only for the industry, but also for the planet. The CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) found that companies that actively plan for climate change report a higher ROE (return on equity) than those that are not. Because we are experiencing the impact of climate change directly, the alcoholic drinks industry, in its most part, is leading the world in developing technologies and creating strategies to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Big corporations such as Lion Co., Treasury Wine Estates, Yalumba Wine Company, Diageo, CUB and Asahi Premium Beverages, to name a few, are raising the bar in improving environmental performance. Other smaller drinks businesses are supporting the cause by investing back into environmental projects through donating some profit margin from sales of product. Research shows that consumers are swayed towards products with a meaningful purpose, particularly younger generations. We believe we will see more of our industry developing products that give back. Some good examples are the Good Beer Co’s Great Barrier Beer assisting the Australian Marine Conservation Society with funds to save the Reef. The Good Beer Co. was also a pioneer of biogradable and marine friendly six-pack holders as an alternative to plastic, an initiative that has been adopted by a string of other beverages companies as an alternative to plastic. Others are developing campaigns to spark awareness and initiate action such as Corona and Parley for the Oceans and recently released, Le Rosé Bleu wine, with their goals to rid our beaches and oceans of plastic waste. It is inspiring what purpose-led business can achieve. Slowly we can start to raise our glasses to a healthier world.

n increased focus on social responsibility in the drinks industry lead The Drinks Association to add a Contribution to Industry category to the Australian Drinks Awards in 2018. The Corporate Social Responsibility Award acknowledges the work drinks companies are doing to promote positive social and environmental change. Pernod Ricard Winemakers won the inaugural Corporate Responsibility Award for its Responsib’All Day initiative, which was created to find ways to get all employees, from directors to line workers, personally engaged in day-to-day corporate sustainability efforts, integrate sustainability into everyone’s job. In 2018, this included Pernod Ricard’s Sydney employees supporting the restoration of Cattai National Park in the Hawkesbury region, alongside charity partner Conservation Volunteers Australia. More than 200 Sydney team members took part in a range of activities, including planting

trees, removing waste and weeds, as well as learning about the history of the site. Endeavour Drinks Group sponsored the Corporate Social Responsibility Award. Michael Jackson, Director - Merchandising, Marketing & Customer Insights, noted: “It was a pleasure to sponsor and present the first CSR award at the Australian Drinks Awards. The award is a reflection of how all our businesses are changing and how important CSR is now to our curious customer. I look forward to seeing the industry evolve in this space over the coming years.” The Drinks Association received an impressive number of submissions for the new category and the high calibre of entries made choosing the winner a daunting task. “I was honoured to be one of the judges in the CSR category,” said Michelle Phipps. “The applicants demonstrated a passion for Corporate Giving that transcends business goals and staff engagement to being more meaningful and sustainable to the

broader community. The calibre of entries was impressive and showed that smaller initiatives are as impactful as larger ones. “Recognising best practice in Corporate Social Responsibility was a rigorous process, with a scoring system that was evidence based and transparent to applicants and judges. This is an important award and I’m proud to be part of the first of its kind from The Drinks Association.” The Drinks Association CEO Georgia Lennon agreed that even small acts have a big impact. “This is a growing industry full of conscientious companies who want to make a difference to the world of alcoholic beverages as well as sustainability,” Lennon noted. “This award highlights the achievements of those companies who are doing great things in this respect.” Judging has commenced for the 2019 Contribution to Industry category, with the winners announced at the Australian Drinks Awards on August 22.

ustrailia’s major brewers – Carlton & United Breweries, Coopers Brewery and Lion Beer Australia – are committed to ambitious targets to help create a more sustainable world and help ensure certainty of supply and pricing. CUB has committed to source 100% of purchased electricity from renewable sources by 2025. In February this year, a major step towards made through the opening of the Karadoc Solar Farm outside Mildura in northern Victoria. CUB is the farm’s biggest customer, due to source 74,000 MWh a year of power, which is enough to power 7,500 homes. The iconic brewer is installing solar panels on the roofs of all its breweries this year to supply its remaining electricity needs. Another sustainability target is a commitment to go either 100% plasticfree or using recycled plastic by 2025. This marked their last ever use by CUB and will save more than 25 million of them from entering the environment each year. The plastic six-pack rings will be replaced by environmentally-friendly cardboard packaging. CUB also recently stopped using plain shrink on slabs of cans brewed at Abbotsford. These will be replaced by cardboard packaging too, meaning 137 tonnes less of plastic will leave the brewery each year. The new packaging is in market now but it may be a few more weeks before old stock disappears entirely across the country. At Coopers Brewery in Adelaide a 4.4 megawatt natural gas powered cogeneration plant located supplies the maltings and brewery with its power needs, and the excess power is then fed back into the South Australian power grid. The plant generates 50,000 tonnes of steam each year, which is used in the brewing and packaging processes eliminating the need for stand-alone gas-fired boilers, thereby, increasing the brewery’s energy efficiency. The hot water produced in the brewery is used to kiln the malt, reducing gas usage by up to 40%. Aquifers beneath the brewery allow groundwater in the onsite reverse osmosis 12|drinks guide

plant, reducing the reliance on SA’s reticulated water resource. With 70% of the water from the aquifers used in the brewing process, the remaining 30% is then pumped through a 7km dedicated pipeline into the Baker Inlet Wetlands. The plant has been upgraded several times to accommodate the changing needs of the brewery and now has a total treatment capacity of 4.5 Ml per day. The advanced technology of Coopers’ highly efficient mash filter means that less water is used in the brewhouse to produce the beer and extracts. Establishing a Maltings onsite has eliminated malt transportation entirely. The small grain from the malting, as well as the spent grains and protein waste from the brewing process, is harvested as a highly-prised bulk animal feed as it is high in fibre and protein. The sales proceeds are given to the philanthropic arm of the brewery, the Coopers Brewery Foundation. Coopers, Australia’s largest family owned brewer, endeavours to have as high a recyclable content as possible in all packaging material. All glass, corrugated cardboard and stretch wrap used in packaging is 100% recyclable. Diversions from landfill is a key priority. Coopers partners with government and industry through the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation to actively reduce any harmful impacts of packaging on the environment. Since 2005, Coopers has reduced the amount of waste going to landfill by 40%, through segregating all recyclables and non-recyclable waste and staff education. Lion Beer Australia is investing in numerous renewable energy projects across its sites, including over $2 million in a solar power system at XXXX in Queensland, cutting its annual carbon emissions by approximate 1,260 tonnes – 7% of CO2 emissions from electricity. The target overall is for Lion to reduce carbon emissions by 30% from FY15 levels by 2026. Water is the most important ingredient in beer. To improve resilience, Lion is exploring innovative ways to

improve water management within the communities it operates. In 2009 Lion commissioned a water recycling plant for its Castlemaine Perkins brewery (Queensland) to halve water-use. A decade on, the brewery is approaching world-class standards in water management and is continually pushing the boundaries of conservation. In 2009, Lion partnered with the Queensland Government to install a reverse osmosis plant, to recover waste water and minimise our reliance on mains-fed town water. All waste water from the site, whether it is waste from brewing, packaging or cleaning, is captured in a collection pit. Much of this water includes useful organic compounds, like yeasts, beer and other brewing products, which when mixed in a large balance tank are digested by bacteria in a tank, creating biogas. The biogas is used as a fuel to offset some of the natural gas usage in the steam boilers. Steam generated by the boilers is supplied across the site as an energy source for heating, cleaning equipment, pasteurisers and boiling the wort kettle. Following reverse osmosis, the waste water is now cleaner than rainwater. It then goes through further sterilisation (including using UV light and chlorine treatment), before it’s ready to store in a two million litre tank. None of the recycled water is used in beer, but it is reused in cooling towers, boilers and for cleaning. In 2018, the plant generated more than 220 million litres, that’s the equivalent of 88 Olympic-sized swimming pools saved. Importantly, the plant enables XXXX Gold to be produced at a ratio of 2.8 litres of water for every litre of beer produced – which is approaching worldleading levels of water efficiency. A decade ago, Lion began the process of phasing out plastic rings in its beer packaging, with the last removed three years ago. Lion is committed to ensuring 100% of its consumer packaging is recyclable by 2025, and that packaging is made from at least 50% recycled contents in the same time frame.


THE ADA AND SUSTAINABILITY 2019 might just be the year of the Australian distillery. Membership of the Australian Distillers Association will top 200 this calendar year and we think there will be more than 140 operating distilleries in every state and territory creating some of the world’s best spirits. Already in 2019 one of our founding members Sullivan’s Cove has been voted the World’s Best Single Malt for the third time, and one of our newest members Never Never Distilling was crowned World’s Best Classic Gin in London, of all places. That’s a pretty good start to the year! And our industry is one that takes its responsibility seriously; our responsibility to our land, our environment and our customers. Ours is a pretty efficient

industry but we can use quite a bit of water and power and almost every Australian distillery we have contacted has told us of their effortsto reduce their footprint. The stories are many and varied, some frankly are sheer inventive genius. So here’s some highlights of what a few of our great distilleries are planning for 2019: • Almost all of our members are planning to install solar panels as we know we can be an energy hungry industry and we often have pretty large roofs. We anticipate that more than 50% of the power used at around 50% of our distilleries will be solar powered by the end of 2019. • We are treating and re-treating water more efficiently, more regularly and more economically – if water is our most treasured natural resource

and great spirits depend on great water, we understand probably better than anyone, how we must protect and nurture our limited water resource. Thus there are dozens of distillers using bore water to heat their stills, not mains water, and re-using as much of that as possible. In a few cases they are reducing water use and waste by more than 90%. • We feed our spent botanicals and spent grain to cows, goats, pigs and even brewers, picklers and jammakers. Anything to re-purpose and re-use delicious ingredients. • We are minimising our use of plastic – from the packaging of our goods to customers right through to the types of straws we use when we serve a cocktail at our distillery door. • We are sending our dunder (the wash left over from distilling rum) to feed cattle or to be re-purposed - apparently the steers much prefer this to the water running from the taps – we can only wonder why! In fact, it’s such a good story here it is – right from the distiller’s mouth. • “The recently completed Husk Distillery features a dunder waste system that uses gravity to transfer hot dunder to a cooling tank, here it sits and cools overnight before being transferred, again under gravity, to two 4,000 litre cattle troughs. The property runs 30-40 steers who can choose to drink the diluted dunder or fresh water. However, come harvest time when the dunder is flowing the choice seems pretty straightforward for these steers. They get very excited and lap up the nutritious broth. Their coats shine and they’ve been described by many as the best fed cattle in the valley.” • And the list goes on. We are a progressive, vibrant conscientious and formidable industry, with a great sense of humour and also a great sense of responsibility. It’s going to be a bloody great year.

ince 2007, DrinkWise has been creating targeted social marketing campaigns to evoke positive behavioural and cultural change around Australians’ consumption of alcohol. Over a decade on, these efforts continue, with 2018 seeing the launch of three additional DrinkWise campaigns and initiatives. This included the augmented reality activation The Internet Remembers - an extension of our How to Drink Properly campaign. Harnessing research insights which showed that young adults see vomiting and looking like a fool as a greater risk than the long-term health effects of excessive drinking, The Internet Remembers serves as a reminder of the potential unintended consequences of drinking too much – including the potentially embarrassing moment that once posted on social media, will live on forever. Our enhanced Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Awareness Program, made possible by government grants and additional industry funding, was launched in Canberra by Hon. Greg Hunt, Federal Health Minister. The program uses broad and targeted approaches to remind those who may be pregnant, planning a pregnancy or breastfeeding that it’s safest not to drink while pregnant. Additional funding by key industry producers has allowed this program to be significantly expanded through Australia, including into regional and remote areas. DrinkWise also partnered with the Outdoor Media Association to launch DrinkWise in front of your kids, borne out of research which showed that one in five parents don’t think their current drinking behaviour will influence how their children drink in the future. Pleasingly the ad, which centred around the theme Children can inherit more than your looks resulted in parents reflecting on their behaviour and being more conscious of displaying good role modelling when drinking in front of their children. Highlighting and reinforcing the benefits of the collaborative DrinkWise

model was also a focus. This culminated in attending and speaking on a panel at the OECD’s Business at OECD Forum on Health - Digital and Partnerships in Paris. The Forum emphasised the opportunities for digital integration for the advancement of health and allowed DrinkWise to showcase its innovative and market leading approach to partnerships with contributors and members. We commenced 2019 by welcoming Campari as a new funder of DrinkWise. Campari, along with our other industry

While better parental role modeling has helped increase the abstinence rates among minors (from 56% in 2007 to 82% in 2016), recent government research shows that of the minority who do drink, parents were the primary source of alcohol. DrinkWise will continue to target parents with our DELAY five point plan and highlight that the longer teenagers delay alcohol use, the less likely they are to develop problems later in life. Better behaviours among young adults are also apparent, with excessive drinking falling from 31% to 21% over the past

funders, are taking the lead in showing their commitment to improving the drinking culture in Australia and we are grateful for their support. Australian government data and industry trends show the Australian population is continuing to reduce excessive consumption and place an emphasis on moderating their drinking, increasingly choosing quality over quantity. DrinkWise recognises that promoting generational change in attitudes towards alcohol is an ongoing endeavor and that these trends do not hold true for everyone, so in 2019 we will continue to encourage Australians to improve their drinking behaviour through our moderation messaging. Our focus on these key audiences includes event-goers, so we are establishing new partnerships and enhancing existing relationships with industry, sporting codes and music festivals to remind consumers about the importance of moderation at events through our You won’t miss a moment if you DrinkWise initiative.

two years. In an effort to further reduce that number, we’ll continue to provide innovative messages to this cohort via our How to Drink Properly campaign. Despite advances in awareness about the importance of not drinking while pregnant, our program efforts will increase (along with those of government) in the hope that FASD, which is 100% preventable, can be eliminated. While there is a continuing need for DrinkWise messages in the community, the more moderate approach to drinking by Australians illustrates that gains are being made and we are getting closer to the goal of a healthier and safer drinking culture. DrinkWise is an independent, notfor-profit organisation founded in 2005 from alcohol industry and government contributions. DrinkWise is funded by these industry leaders: Aldi, Accolade, Bacardi-Martini, Beam Suntory, BrownForman, Campari, Coca-Cola Amatil, CUB, Coles Liquor, Coopers, Diageo, Endeavour Drinks Group, Lion Beer, Pernod Ricard and Treasury Wine Estates.



rewing beer is, by its nature, a resource-intensive process. It takes a fair amount of raw material (water, grain, aluminium, glass) to create the beer that ultimately lands in the consumer’s hands. This means, however, that the brewing industry is uniquely positioned to make significant changes and implement sustainable practices that drastically reduce its environmental footprint. The independent brewing industry is at the forefront of innovation – not just in beer, but in sustainable practices. Here are just some of the ways in which the independent brewing industry is reducing its impact on the environment and developing earth-friendly practices.

BREWING WITH SUNSHINE Helios Brewing Company was named after the sun god in Greek mythology. This is fitting, considering that the sun powers most of what they do. Helios is fitted with 59 x 335 w photovoltaic solar panels, which harness the Queensland sun to both produce power and heat water. Helios uses the sun’s thermal energy in the brewing process itself, pumping cold water through evacuated tube collectors on the brewery roof and heating it to over 90 degrees for the boil.

Depending on style, brewers use malted cereal grain such as barley or wheat to produce the mash. Spent grain is therefore a natural by-product of the brewing process. Rather than discarding this waste, many brewers have taken to recycling and repurposing the spent grain.




Depending on style, brewers use malted cereal grain such as barley or wheat to produce the mash. Spent grain is therefore a natural by-product of the brewing process. Rather than discarding this waste, many brewers have taken to recycling and repurposing the spent grain. The Illawarra Brewing Company worked alongside other brewers around the region to donate their spent grain to drought-afflicted farms in the area. As feed grass dried and the price of hay bales rose, donating the spent grain not only recycled the brewery waste back into the food chain, but it also supported the Australian agricultural industry and a community in need.

The growing consumer demand for locally produced beer has allowed brewers to thrive just by supplying beer to their local communities. In fact, over two thirds of our members serve beer directly from their premises, reducing fossil fuel emissions associated with transporting packaged beer. Bright Brewery takes this concept to new heights, literally. Their water is sourced from the Ovens River, which flows down the mountains and past the brewery, and they source 64% of their malt from Victoria. Furthermore, 80% of their beer is consumed on-site, drastically reducing the environmental impact of transporting the beer.

These three examples are just some of the highlights of the innovative practices of the brewing industry. Driven by both consumer preferences and a genuine care for the environment, more and more brewers are developing ethical business practices and adopting a sustainable, locally-owned ethos. While the Australian independent brewing industry is still maturing, its transformative potential and ability to innovate and explore sustainable practices cannot be underestimated.

SUSTAINABILITY IN THE AUSTRALIAN WINE SECTOR Wine reflects the place where the grapes were grown, so much so that the term terroir was coined to encapsulate all of the different elements that influence the characteristics of a wine. Australia’s grape and wine producers have embraced advances in viticulture and winemaking practices that protect the environment for future generations. Sustainability is part of our community’s approach to continued improvement of our practices. Wine Australia’s role is to invest in research and development that will drive our sector’s continued prosperity in the face of the challenges that it may face, and to encourage best practice. Among the areas we are investing in are the opportunities that will improve performance to become more sustainable, differentiated and more competitive. In the winery, current practices include improved water use and wastewater management, energy efficiencies and recycling. For example, after the grapes are pressed and the juice extracted, the remaining skins and seeds (called ‘grape marc’) are processed to produce high value natural food colourants, grape seed oil, tartaric acid, grape spirit and finally, mulch that can be applied on the vineyard or other land to increase humus (organic content). Australia’s grapegrowers have adopted practices to improve their sustainability, including: • increasing irrigation efficiency • modifying irrigation practices to better respond to events, such as heatwaves and frosts • changing soil management practices to retain moisture and encourage improved soil health • changing vineyard management practices to reduce chemical use • modifying vineyard understorey management to improve soil health and increase soil biodiversity • planting alternative varieties and using rootstocks that are drought and pest tolerant 16|drinks guide

Sustainability is part of our community’s approach to continued improvement of our practices. Wine Australia’s role is to invest in research and development that will drive our sector’s continued prosperity in the face of the challenges that it may face, and to encourage best practice.

• modifying canopy management practices to minimise heat and disease pressure, and • adopting delayed pruning practices to manage harvest dates to assist in the winery at vintage. Wine Australia’s investments also provide the sector with the information it needs to manage the challenges of short-term climate cycles and long-term climate change, to ensure that grapevine resources are preserved, endemic pests and diseases are better managed and freedom from exotic pests is maintained. This includes the development of new varieties and rootstocks that are best suited to our vineyards, sustainable management

of pests and diseases to reduce chemical usage, enhanced technologies and processes to improve vineyard efficiency and practices, and building better understanding of short- and mid-term climate trends to drive vineyard management responses. To demonstrate our sector’s sustainability credentials, a new single national program for the Australian grape and wine community that brings together two previous programs has been announced and will commence on 1 July 2019. Sustainable Winegrowing Australia provides a unified sustainability framework for all Australian grapegrowers and winemakers to demonstrate their individual sustainability credentials, benchmark performance and identify opportunities for improvements.




ccolade Wines entered an exciting new chapter in 2018 thanks to the $1bn sale of the business to the Carlyle Group, one of the world’s largest and most successful investment management firms. The move captures both the scale of the successful growth of the company as well as our underlying potential to expand further in key markets, China in particular. We continue to source the majority of our wines from all major New World wine growing regions including Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile and the United States, supplying 34m cases of wine per year to customers in 140 countries around the globe. 2018 proved another excellent year on the wine show front for Accolade Wines with a combined total of 32 trophies and 139 gold medals. House of Arras, Grant Burge and Eddystone Point were all top performers, though the standout individual wine proved to be Hardys HRB Pinot Noir 2017, taking Wine of Show, Best Red and Best Pinot Noir at the Royal Hobart Wine Show. In tribute to the heritage and blending traditions of the historic Hardy’s brand, this year we released a luxurious 165th

anniversary Cabernet Shiraz crafted from the outstanding 2014 vintage. Featuring a limited release of just 2,148 bottles and 234 magnums, it earned the highest ever Halliday rating of any Accolade Wines product with a score of 99 points and title as “a heart-skipping wine, exquisitely detailed and elegant.” Our head sparkling winemaker, Ed Carr – already Australia’s most decorated sparkling winemaker – again proved himself the unrivalled talent of his generation with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships. Ed was the only non-champenois to be awarded the title this year thanks to his contribution to the Australian sparkling sector, chiefly as the driving force behind the multiaward winning House of Arras brand. In fitting tribute to its legendary status as Australia’s most awarded sparkling wine brand, House of Arras also secured a tie-in this year with the prestigious Sydney Symphony Orchestra, a move that will allow patrons at selected events to a enjoy combination of world-class wine and music. A number of new products hit the shelves

this year. Cupio, a dry, Provence-style rosé with a standout bottle shape more reminiscent of the spirits aisle, is designed to appeal to a wide audience - particularly male consumers that have traditionally been overlooked in this fast growing category. St Hallett’s new Blockhead sub-range was launched to entice a younger (3050 year old) segment of wine drinkers, giving them the confidence to take the next step in their journey and upscale towards higher quality products. A bold, contemporary offering named after a moniker bestowed on the early European settlers of the Barossa Valley region, these Shiraz-based premium wines are ranged within the lucrative $20-30 price segment. To the existing super-premium Icon range of reds from Grant Burge we added Nebu Cabernet Shiraz, a uniquely Australian blend of signature Barossa varietals that combine for a rich, powerful and complex palate. Created from aged vineyards that have delivered perfect fruit and exceptional vintages, this is a truly luxurious wine that will continue to cellar well for many years.

or ALM and the Metcash business at large, our success is underpinned by demonstrating our commitment to corporate responsibility, and the leadership role we play in supporting local communities through our retail network right across the nation. As we operate primarily as a wholesaler (not a manufacturer), the majority of our environmental and sustainability initiatives are focused on the management of our Distribution Centres (DC’s) to ensure we minimise the environmental impacts from these sites. Waste & Recycling - We work closely with our contractors, building managers and employees to promote better recycling and recovery, and also reduce the volume of material going to landfill at our sites. Approximately 86% of our DC’s waste over the past year was diverted from landfill, with the majority being paper, plastics and cardboard sent for recycling. Last year, Metcash committed to eliminating the distribution and sale of single use plastic bags, and we continue to work to deliver this commitment right across our retail network. To encourage the transition from single use

to environmentally friendly alternatives, we offer a range of reusable bags that are available in stores, with strong take-up across the network. We are also committed to working with our suppliers to reduce plastic packaging as we look to alternatives to single use plastic. Emissions & Energy reduction - Metcash reports on annual basis against the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) which facilitates the ability for companies to benchmarks themselves on environmental performance. Over the last twelve months we have reduced our energy consumed by over 8.5%, having reduced energy usage and associated emissions through a number of initiatives, including the retro-fitting of LED lighting across our DC network and the charging of forklifts during non-peak periods. Over the next twelve months, Metcash in conjunction with our Landlords, will review the opportunity to introduce solar power into its DC’s in an effort to further reduce our emissions. We are also exploring the introduction of renewable energy sources within the build of our new Distribution Centre in Gepps Cross, South Australia.

Health, Wellbeing & Safety Metcash maintains a focus on creating a “Zero Harm” environment within the work place, with a commitment to the prevention of work-related injury and illness to employees, visitors, contractors and members of the public in all areas in which we operate. Metcash has adopted a more disciplined Incident Investigation process utilising the ICAM methodology to deliver an improvement in the investigation process and more robust corrective actions. As more personnel are trained this is expected to deliver further reductions in incident rates particularly in partnership with an increased emphasis placed on leading safety activities such as hazard reporting and rectification, site inspections, communication sessions and safety engagement conversations conducted across all levels of the organisation. The theme of ‘making safety simple’ continues to generate positive engagement and response as we reduce unnecessary complexity and simplify our processes. FY20 will see us explore several new areas of safety activity including trials of wearable technology to assist in reducing muscular skeletal exposure and the introduction of ‘Safer Me - Safer Metcash’, a campaign intended to educate and equip our workforce in adopting safe habits 24/7. The Team at ALM look forward to playing our role as a responsible contributor to the environmental and sustainability efforts of our industry, and the collective difference we can make for the future… Regards, Rod

019 promises to be a very exciting year for Asahi Premium Beverages (APB). The alcohol industry continues to face challenges with regulatory, environmental, retailer and consumer pressures. These challenges provide us with opportunities to differentiate our offer and demonstrate how we can add more value to our customers, supporting the growth of their businesses. APB is uniquely positioned to offer customers a great portfolio of alcohol and non-alcohol beverages. Our focus on premium international and craft beers sees us with such strong brands as Asahi Super Dry, Peroni, Cricketers Arms and Mountain Goat. Asahi Super Dry is supported with a new TVC and campaign, ‘Enter Asahi’ which will continue throughout 2019, creating more interest and excitement in this premium brand. Mountain Goat’s newest offer, GOAT Beer, is a very enjoyable beer - an uncomplicated, good value beer targeted at traditional lager drinkers looking for something new and interesting. And with a unique way of promoting it, drinkers are getting on board. Our ready to drink portfolio continues to flourish with loyal consumers loving Vodka Cruiser and Woodstock. In the cider category, Somersby reinvigorated summer with Somersby Watermelon being the #1 flavoured cider of the summer (QTR 3/03/19) and a strong activation calendar which saw the brand partner with The Laneway Festival for 2019. Stay tuned for another exciting activation for summer 2019/20. Our non-alcohol brands include favourites such as Schweppes, Pepsi, Solo and Phoenix organic soft drinks, as well as water brands, Cool Ridge and VOSS. The new Schweppes Signature Series provides a great tasting range of premium soft drinks and mixers, with exotic ingredients perfect for drinking straight up or mixing, and suitable for

on-premise and at home consumption. As part of the Asahi Beverages business, APB understands how important it is to be a responsible organisation – to be mindful of the resources we consume, of the messages we send, of the environment we create and the contribution we make to society. This year we will be setting out our commitments in our inaugural sustainability report, which brings together our commitments to consumers, the environment, our people and the communities where we operate. Our products can contribute positively to consumers’ lifestyles. As a manufacturer and marketer of alcohol products, we take our responsibility for marketing our products very seriously. We continually improve our internal processes to ensure that we meet the requirements of marketing our products in a socially acceptable way, educating our teams on what is appropriate, and applying safeguards across social media accounts to ensure we are only advertising to those of legal drinking age. Across our alcohol portfolio we are always exploring opportunities to provide our customers and consumers with more choices and you can expect some exciting new products to be launched in the second half of 2019. We have committed to reducing sugar across our non-alcohol portfolio so that by 2025 90% of our portfolio will be no, low or reduced sugar products. We will achieve this through providing consumers with more choices, reformulating some of our higher sugar products, through new and innovative additions to our portfolio and through responsible marketing and labelling. We aspire to make a valuable contribution to addressing social issues as they relate to our business operations. We are very conscious of the packaging we use across our

business, and are actively looking at ways we can reduce our environmental impact, including rethinking and redesigning our packaging, reducing the weight of our packaging, and exploring ways to close the loop. From an environmental perspective we measure and monitor our contribution to carbon, water and waste to ensure continuous improvement. We have a long-standing relationship with our community partner, Whitelion. Whitelion is a not-for-profit organisation that supports and empowers young people at risk to reach their full potential. The organisation delivers prevention programs in schools and provides a range of support services for homeless and disengaged young people, to connect them with the community as well as with education, training and employment opportunities. Our employees have been involved in many ways, including fundraising at sites, participating in Whitelion fundraising activities, taking on personal commitments to mentor young people, volunteering time and expertise, and providing employment opportunities for young people. We chose to align with Whitelion because we see great merit in providing development opportunities and positive role models to young people, particularly those who have been disadvantaged. In 2019, our focus will be on delivering exciting new offers for consumers to keep them interested in our categories. For our on-premise customers, it will be about providing exceptional, value added service to ensure that together we deliver an outstanding experience for guests and patrons. And for our company, it will be about enhancing our sustainability and community commitments, while we continue to grow our business.

he business has had a phenomenal year both domestically and internationally, successfully growing our global footprint and strengthening our position at home. Australian Vintage is in great shape, posting profits of $7.7 million last year, which has enabled us to reshape our capital and marketing plans to future-proof the business. The company’s three core brands ¬– McGuigan Wines, Tempus Two and Nepenthe grew by 14% globally in 2018. Domestically, the big headlines for us are Tempus Two and Nepenthe, which grew by 38% and 15% respectively – with Tempus Two becoming Australia’s fastest growing wine brand, which is a huge milestone for the brand and with considerable potential locally and abroad. This year will see further upweighted marketing investment to support the portfolio’s on-going strong performance, including the next phase of the ‘Bring a McGuigan’ campaign and the first abovethe-line advertising push for Tempus Two.

As well as increasing investment behind our brands to grow consumer awareness, we are putting a great deal of focus on our operating infrastructure and invested a record $19 million last year – which marks the largest ever capital investment in the business. The aim has been to drive efficiencies, enabling us to remain highly

e are in a great position to be building our business through the rise of cocktail culture in Australia. Our portfolio of brands are strengthening as we look into not just this year and next, but the next 10 years. It’s an exciting time to be in premium spirits. Grey Goose celebrated another year with the brand’s premier media campaign featuring the latest Riviera Limited edition bottle. The trade were educated on, not just the super-premium brand, but the wider vodka category, with Global advocacy platform Vive La Vodka during an exclusive Getaway reminiscent of the brand’s French home. A new partnership with GQ was established and kicked off with Grey Goose sponsoring the aspirational and glamorous Men of The Year Awards with influential Australian and International individuals being recognised. Bombay Sapphire is stirring creativity within experience hungry millennials through a partnership with Australia’s oldest and most visited art gallery, the National Gallery of Victoria. Bringing an innovative and sensory Bombay Sapphire Gin Garden to the renowned NGV across the summer. Continuing our long-standing love affair with great live music and inspiring consumers to ‘Do What Moves You’, the festival season saw the launch of the Bacardí El Coco Tropical Danceteria. The rolling mojito bar, born from a converted 1950s Chevy, served up freshly hand-poured Bacardí Mojitos while a live #SoundOfRum soundtrack brought a taste of the Caribbean to festival-goers over summer.

This year we had an exciting addition to our super premium portfolio: Patrón tequila. This 100% pure weber blue agave masterpiece is harvested, roasted, crushed and distilled in the hills of Jalisco, Mexico.

It has perfected the art of making tequila to become the world’s largest super premium tequila. Tequila is one of the fastest-growing and most attractive categories in the Australian spirits industry. Super-premium brands are expected to continue to be among the fastest growing categories, so we are excited to invest to build the Patrón brand as the leader. In this transition year we have invested in the Patron Perfectionist Bartender competition and through the line consumer activity such as Patrón Worthy Destinations and digital media. I also had the opportunity to visit the breathtaking Hacienda Patrón

where I was able to witness the absolute commitment to craft, excellence and tradition. In 2018/19, 42BELOW continued its work supporting the bartenders and venues who are trying to tread more lightly on this planet. The latest planet saving initiative from 42BELOW, Plastic Island, saw the issue of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch brought to the fore. In a 42BELOW way, we showed that pollution is real, really gross and really close to us all… and we showcased the wonderful ACTION bartenders are taking to address this. Plastic Island dove-tailed nicely into Bacardí global relationship with Lonely Whale to reduce plastic and remove straws in #thefuturedoesntsuck campaign. Bacardí-Martini Australia is committed to the development of the industry, customers and the people who work in it. This starts with our own employees or “Primos” (cousins in Spanish). We’re proud of being the world’s largest, privately owned spirits company, nurtured by seven generations of the Bacardí family – and our culture reflects our rich history and heritage; we are fearless, have a founder’s mentality and family to the core.

BUILDING BRANDS THE RIGHT WAY Brown-Forman continued to grow portfolio strength and value over the past year with Jack Daniel’s trademark leading the way in Australia. We have also benefited nicely from increasing consumer interest in whiskeys, overall, especially within the premium segments. Woodford Reserve is just one example and has quite a long runway. Gentleman Jack and Single Barrel, on the other hand, have some nice green shoots within the on-premise and both are developing well. Even our smaller brands that are at the beginning stages of seeding and discovery, such as Old Forester, GlenDronach, and BenRiach are yielding nice growth early on, and provide even more of a reason for continued optimism across the whiskey category. In the area of environmental sustainability for our largest brand, Jack Daniel’s, we have been a leader for quite some time now. It has been a passion for the brand. So much so, that 99% of materials from the distillery are either reused or recycled. Shrink wrap is converted to decking material, spent grain is used as cattle feed, and barrels are resold to other beverage alcohol manufacturers. (Remember, we raise our own barrels and can only use them ONCE to make Jack Daniel’s in Lynchburg, Tennessee!).

Even the wood waste from nearby mills produces almost three quarters of the energy used across our distillery, further reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. Australians are also beginning to discover tequilas -- and Herradura and el Jimador are well positioned as high quality, great tasting, authentic brands with a deep heritage dating back to the 1800s. We continue to see mixologists mixing up their menus for greater variety. They, too, should feel confident in the sustainability strides we are making with these brands as well. Ensuring that we do our part for the environment is very important within Casa Herradura. Our distillery there now uses a state-of-the-art steam boiler that turns agave plant waste into energy. Utilizing this new boiler has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 52%. Additionally, Casa

Herradura received the “Environmental Excellence Award” from the Mexican Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection. This is the highest honour and is presented to companies that have demonstrated a strong commitment to environmental improvement. And, there are other projects in the pipeline that we hope will become realities in the future that can help even more. Lastly, we know that great people build great sustainable brands. Whether at the distillery, or here in Australia -- People always make the difference. The support of our brands by on-premise operators and retail partners can never be taken lightly. Without their efforts, we cannot reach our consumers. And, we thank them all for their ongoing partnership.

his year was another strong year for Campari in Australia. Our business experienced double-digit topline growth, driven by a strong portfolio performance and the support of our partners in both the Off-Trade and On-Trade. Aperol continues to transform the drinking experience through the Apertif occasion with excellent marketing and activation campaigns contributing to the brand’s growth, the highlight being our continued participation at the Australian Open. Wild Turkey is driving the bourbon revival. Our creative, featuring Matthew McConaughey, truly resonated with consumers and customers and new innovations, Wild Turkey Longbranch and Wild Turkey Longserves, helped deliver solid growth. Campari, Espolon and Baron Samedi also performed well and represent clear category expansion opportunities for us and our partners. Lastly, Glen Grant is fast becoming a favourite in the Single Malt space. As Campari’s business continues to grow

We will explore opportunities in low-alcohol beverages and bourbon, and will expand our social and digital marketing, leveraging new advances in technology. Finally, we are also working hard to build retailer engagement and have a strong focus on sharing our long-term plans, building joint business plans and leveraging customer assets. In the year ahead, we’ll continue to look more closely at how we can support retailers with their online shopping offerings and making the online shopping experience more attractive to consumers.

019 is a particularly exciting and significant year for Casella Family Brands as we celebrate our 50th anniversary, with Peter Lehmann Wines and Morris Wines also commemorating a very special 40 years and 160 years respectively. It was in 1969 that my family applied for a licence and officially started making wine. The solid open concrete fermenter was constructed by my father on 31 January 1969 and still stands today. In that very first vintage we crushed 8 tonnes of grapes. Fifty years later, in vintage 2019, we have just processed 188,894 tonnes across all 5 sites. It’s incredible to reflect on our growth from a small family winery capable of storing 800 cases, to becoming Australia’s largest family-owned winery shipping almost 13.5 million cases (9LE) every year. I’d like to thank our trade and industry suppliers and friends for supporting our brands over the years and I look forward to continuing to grow our future together.

[YELLOW TAIL] REMAINS STRONG Whilst the $6-$10 price category is seeing some challenges due to the trend

32|drinks guide

towards premiumisation, 2019 started strongly for [yellow tail] wine as it secured its place as the Most Powerful Wine Brand in the World for the second year running according to Wine Intelligence’s Global Wine Brand Power Index. This is a fantastic achievement as it shows [yellow tail] is a trusted brand that consumers look to for reassurance when navigating such a fragmented and complex category. The continued success of the brand can be attributed to a number of factors; delivering on consumer taste expectations, consistency of quality, a focus on building solid distribution with strong visibility in the off-trade and continued investment in marketing support to ensure the brand remains top of mind amongst consumers. In Australia and the UK, we will be launching a new consumer campaign towards the end of the year and in the US we are seeing strong results from the Super Bowl campaign following our third year of advertising investment. While [yellow tail] remains a core focus and we will continue to invest in the brand, at the same time we’re developing our premium portfolio to meet the evolving needs of wine consumers as they continue to seek out and explore premium wines.

SIPPING IS BELIEVING The Magic Box Wine Collection is a new range of wines in the $10 - $15 price segment, the number one segment by value* With a dazzling range of spectacular varietals conjured from the finest Australian grapes by a master winemaker known only as ‘the Magician’, Magic Box wines are becoming the premium drop-of-choice amongst the Millennial target audience. Millennials account for almost one third of total wine spend (and growing) in Australia and as they are still building their wine experience they are drawn to brands that simplify their purchase with bold designs and outstanding experiences. The launch of Magic Box in Australia has been extremely successful. The brand has experienced double digit growth month on month with all four varietals performing well.

ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY With five winery sites and vineyards across the country, we implement a variety of initiatives that contribute to the sustainability of the environment as well as complying with all relevant codes of practice, legislation and regulations. Our grapes are sourced from a network of growers and our own vineyards across Australia. We

only use sustainable viticultural practices with minimal intervention and we continuously review our methods in order to minimise our impact on the environment. The Baileys of Glenrowan vineyard enjoys a unique microclimate that is naturally well suited to organic farming. In 2009 the decision was made to convert the entire vineyard to organic management practices, attaining full certification in 2011. From the 2016 vintage onwards, both the growing and the making of Baileys estategrown wines are certified organic. Non-organic waste is recycled where possible. All organic waste is recycled to make compost that is used by Casella Family Brands owned vineyards as fertiliser to produce wine grapes. We are committed to improving the sustainability of our packaging,

which involves initiatives to reduce packaging weight, optimise packaging material efficiency, optimise recycled and renewable content and continuously investigate opportunities to divert waste from landfill. Casella Family Brands leads the way in wastewater management and is proud to have one of the largest wastewater treatment schemes of its type in Australia at the Yenda-based winery. Our treatment scheme is capable of recycling the equivalent of over 160 Olympic-sized swimming pools each year and this means we can retain and reuse rainwater and wastewater. Heavy rainfall is diverted to winery wetlands whenever possible. The impact on the environment and the rise of the conscious consumer are currently huge driving forces in the wine industry and we are committed to championing industry best practice.

he 2018 year was another exciting one for Coca-Cola Amatil, as the Alcohol & Coffee business achieved double-digit growth for a fourth successive year, invested heavily in future growth initiatives, and made strong progress against each of our sustainability goals. The way we do business is fundamental to our success. We believe every one of our team should be proud to work for Amatil, come to work passionate about what they do and inspired by the chance to make a positive difference for Amatil and their team, and for the communities and causes that matter most to us. As we continue to challenge ourselves to look after our people and the environment, and make a positive difference in our communities, I’m proud to share some of our recent progress.

OUR PEOPLE As aspire to empower our people to be their best and to keep them safe to go home to what the love. We strive for a zero-harm workplace. Since 2012 we’ve achieved a 74 per cent reduction in total injuries, including a five per cent decrease in 2018 compared to 2017. We also continue to focus on programs that support employee health and wellbeing, including mental wellbeing, and to nurture a diverse culture that values inclusion. In 2018, 83% of our people felt our workplace was accepting of diverse backgrounds and ways of thinking. One area where this is particularly evident is our leadership in achieving gender balance. Going into 2019, 34% of our management are female, compared to the 23.5% national average for the manufacturing industry. Within Alcohol & Coffee, women account for 41% of all positions, including 41% of sales positions, 31% of management positions and 33% of senior exec roles. Encouragingly, this is replicated at the highest level too - we are the only ASX100 company to have a female Chair and Group Managing Director, and 44% of our Board members are female too. Programs to support female leaders continue to play an important role in future 34|drinks guide

progress, enabling talented women to step up and building a talent pipeline for the future. We also know that flexibility is hugely important to our employees. Programs like our Kids@Work initiative, which encourages employees to bring their children to work in selected weeks during the school holidays, are highly valued by our team. I’m proud that the initiative originated from within the Alcohol & Coffee team. For me this is a great example of how our people take the initiative and own the outcome, which is one of our Amatil values.

• 41 per cent of all positions are now held by women • 41 per cent of all Sales positions are held by women • 31 per cent of all Management positions are held by women • 33 per cent of all Senior Executive positions are held by women CONSUMER WELLBEING As leaders, it’s on us all to build a culture and industry that our people can be proud to say they’re part of. We should all be able to celebrate the positive role our brands play in building meaningful social connections and memorable experiences. None of us want to see our brands or our industry associated with harm. In 2018, we continued our commitment to Alcohol Beverages Australia and DrinkWise to help bring about a healthier and safer drinking culture, including supporting a new DrinkWise educational campaign to highlight the importance of abstaining from alcohol if planning a

pregnancy, pregnant or breastfeeding in order to prevent Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). We remain signatories to the Alcohol Beverages Advertising Code and, through our Group Alcohol Advertising and Marketing Standards, continue to hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards in responsible marketing of our beverages, including in regions where local laws do not require it.

ENVIRONMENT Protecting the environment has been one of the areas of greatest concern for our people and the community. Increasingly, our work on sustainable packaging and protecting marine environments are of significant interest to our stakeholders, who are looking for us to harness the power of our system and scale of our supply chain to lead positive change. In 2018 we made significant progress in our focus areas of packaging neutrality, energy and water management, and responsible sourcing. • Led industry’s involvement and support for Australia’s National Packaging Targets to ensure 100% of our packaging is recyclable by 2025, as well as The CocaCola Company’s industry-first ‘World Without Waste’ global strategy to collect and recycle the equivalent of every bottle or can sold globally by 2030. • Achieved over 56% of our energy use from renewable or low-carbon energy, against a 2020 target of at least 60%. • Achieved a 15% reduction in water intensity in our alcoholic beverage operations, against a target of 25% by 2020 (against our 2013 baseline). • Completed responsible sourcing assessments on 76 per cent of suppliers, against a target of 80% by 2020 • Took a leadership role in working with governments and stakeholders across Australia on container deposit and refund schemes, building on the expertise of running the South Australian container deposit scheme for over 40 years, through our wholly-owned subsidiary Statewide Recycling

We know that the ability to make a positive difference within the community is very important to our people. In 2018, Amatil invested over $6.1M in community programs and facilitated an additional leverage amount of $1.6M. Within this figure, the

Alcohol & Coffee business was directly responsible for over $1M, equivalent to 16 per cent of the Group’s total contribution, and 1.85% of the business’ EBIT. As well as making a difference for some 140 communities, the program improved team engagement and satisfaction.

Almost 90% of our people see us as socially and environmentally responsible organisation and engagement amongst our North Sydney-based marketing, sales and finance teams is up an average of 20 percentage points on last year.

rom the rise of powerhouse brand Kim Crawford to launching new innovations with our partners, it has certainly been quite a year for us. Constellation Brands is a leading international producer and marketer of beer, wine and spirits with operations worldwide, and we are seeing strong momentum with our recent investments to grow our brands in Australia. The rise of Kim Crawford has been a solid foundation for growing our Australian business. Consistent flavour, award winning wines and standout branding have driven a highly loyal consumer following that has made this brand a global phenomenon. As the most advertised brand in the wine category in the United States, we can leverage that investment locally, such as our partnership with Cirque du Soleil as the official wine sponsor in 2019/2020. Since taking back distribution in 2017, Kim Crawford has grown to a $20 million brand whilst increasing average price in Australia.

We are also incredibly excited for innovations we are co-launching with our partners this year. As a business, our aim is to be a value-add partner with every new product development launched with our customers. While we aren’t ready to talk about it just yet, we have some pretty exciting new products on the horizon. We can’t launch new products without our partners – from our growers to our supply chain and, of course, our customers. Therefore, we are excited by one of our key initiatives launched this year, strengthening our supply chain in Australia to streamline our New Zealand-Australia operations. We not only reduced our carbon footprint from 1,200kg of CO2 to 300kg per container, but we’ve also seen the added benefit of cutting down our time to customers by 80%! While consumers enjoy our products, our vineyards and wineries are busy with continuous improvement to drive quality and sustainable operations. In addition to our company vineyards’

accreditation with Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand, 100% of our growers are also accredited. In the last few years we have developed more than 300 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough to fuel the rise of Kim Crawford globally and as we continue to scale it is important we continually seek out and implement sustainable practices. In our vineyards we have several exciting developments from trials to reduce water waste to switching to recyclable steel posts from wood. With our new developments we are among the first in Marlborough to utilise these steel posts, rather than the traditional treated wooden posts, to avoid leaching byproducts into the soil. This year, we not only saved wooden posts from landfill, but a recycler actually paid us to pick up our excess steel posts! We still have a lot of work ahead from grape to store shelves. We are looking forward to a fantastic year ahead to fulfill our mission of elevating life with every glass raised.

A MODERN BREWERY Coopers Brewery at Regency Park is one of the most modern breweries in Australia. We not only produce some of Australia’s favourite beers but do so with the least possible consequence to the environment. In areas such as energy recovery, power generation, water usage, recycling, efficient operation and work practices, Coopers has adopted world-best practices. At the same time, we have been able to maintain the essential character of the fine ales first brewed by our company’s founder, Thomas Cooper, in 1862. Coopers is a signatory to the Federal Government’s Greenhouse Challenge and to the National Packaging Covenant as well as a member of the Beverage Industry Environment Council which seeks to promote consumer responsibilities.

COGENERATION PLANT All Coopers Brewery’s electricity and steam requirements are drawn from a 4.4 Megawatt (MW) natural gas powered cogeneration plant located on site. The plant, built in partnership with AGL, burns natural gas in a gas turbine to drive an electricity generator and uses the waste heat to produce steam used in the brewing process.

40|drinks guide

As a result, the plant achieves an efficiency rate of 80%, approximately 2.5 times greater than a conventional power station. This has reduced carbon dioxide emissions by up to 15,000 tonnes per annum compared with a conventional power plant – the equivalent of taking an estimated 3200 standard vehicles off the road for a year. The cogeneration plant produces 24,000 Megawatt hours (MWh) of power per year for the brewery and the maltings. Any excess power is fed into the South Australian power grid. The plant also generates 50,000 tonnes of steam a year, used for heating in the brewing process. Steam was previously generated at the brewery by gas-fired boilers.

WATER USAGE All water used by Coopers originates from aquifers beneath the brewery, reducing the demand on Adelaide’s reticulated water supply. This underground water is clean, but saline and is purified by reverse osmosis. Extraction rates from the aquifers are carefully monitored to ensure they do not exceed the rate of replenishment. Approximately 70% of the water fed into the purification plant is used in the brewing process. The remaining 30% contains salt

wastes and is pumped through a dedicated pipeline into the intertidal zone at the Barker Inlet under the terms of a licence with the Environmental Protection Agency. Environmental scientists say the water from the pipeline has a similar salt concentration to the brackish environment produced in the intertidal zone, where seawater mixes with freshwater. Excess water from the reverse osmosis plant is mixed with bore water to irrigate the high salt tolerant lawns around the brewery. In addition, Coopers captures and recycles up to 35 megalitres (35 million litres) of water each year. Water is recovered from three production areas, mainly in the bottling hall and brewhouse, and are recycled for irrigation and other non production uses. The brewery has two 45,000 litre tanks where recaptured water is stored and monitored before use.

OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT Coopers Brewery has extensive monitoring systems in place to maximise efficiency and waste reduction. Co-products – the spent grains and trub (protein waste from the brewing process) – are sold as stock feed. A sophisticated brewery-wide SCADA monitoring system collects a wide range

In 2017, Coopers opened a $65 million malting plant at Regency Park. The 13,000 sq m plant is considered the most technically advanced in the world and can produce around 54,000 tonnes of malt a year. In terms of water usage, process control and automation, this is the most advanced maltings in the world. Water used in production comes from the saline aquifers beneath the brewery which is desalinated before use. Unique in- house designed features have allowed Coopers to reduce steeping times, water usage and kiln- gas during the malting process. Power is mostly drawn from the cogeneration plant, which also provides recovered heat for the kiln:

25%, allowing shorter steeping times, more vigorous grain for germination, and may allow single steeping under certain circumstances, saving water. • Kiln Pre-Heating – Coopers Brewery employs a co-generation unit that generates electricity. Waste heat from this process was historically vented to atmosphere. This waste heat has been captured to heat water and subsequently pre-hear kiln air. This ‘free’ energy results in an energy saving of around 40% of kiln gas. Coopers Brewery was recently named equal best maltster in the world at the World Barley, Malt and Beer Conference held in Warsaw.

• Pre-steeping – Coopers Maltings employs a unique in-house designed barley wetting screw that wets the grain and removes contaminants from barley. The damp grain is then allowed to rest under controlled conditions for two hours, during which time the moisture rises from 10% to

of process information that is used for process control and monitoring. This allows all aspects of brewing and evaporation of product to be optimised. Energy efficiency is further boosted by low grade heat recovery and reuse while vapour condensation at the brew kettle eliminates odours. Energy audits within the brewery have resulted in the installation of high-efficiency low-energy lighting in all areas of the brewery while programs regularly examine machinery to determine if it can be used more efficiently or should be replaced with more modern and efficient equipment. All fluid wastes are monitored for temperature, ph levels and conductivity to ensure they meet appropriate standards as part of Coopers trade waste licence with SA Water. Packaging is recyclable and in combination with optimisation of the packaging process has resulted in a 50% reduction in material to landfill.

s an organisation, we are seeing growth in membership and membership retention, which is a good indication that our members are supportive of what we are delivering. Sales result in the first half of the year realised a 4% increase. Super Cellars rebranding has resulted in a value growth of 6 .2% and volume growth of 3.4% year to date. Australia’s liquor retail business has been in an endless phase of change, changes that has brought more challenges. As a co-operative our mission is to provide ongoing support to keep our members commercially viable. The strategic plan behind our retail venture in Victoria is primarily to learn and gain experience in retail operation and understand new age processes that we can share with our members. Over the course of the next few weeks, ILG will be making further announcements on our Victorian strategy. We have embarked on another digital initiative. Over the coming months we are trialling the geo-targeting campaign with a handful of stores. This campaign feeds ads through numerous apps and targets users that fit the demographic we set. Exciting and effective, it will drive additional consumer brand awareness and provide multiple digital touch points throughout the shopper journey. In the first quarter of the 2020 financial year, we will be introducing online training development modules,

commencing with a New Member Induction programme. We want our current and new members to be wellinformed of what the co-operative can do for them and to embrace the benefits of their membership to enable them to fully express their point of difference. We will continue offering our training workshops, recently expanded with sessions being held in various locations including member owned venues, to reciprocate the business, as well as supplier premises, where other activities like tastings and production tours have been added.

or us at Lion, sustainability is about doing the right thing for the long term. This extends to all aspects of our interaction with the community, including a deep commitment to being a responsible alcohol producer. This is especially important when it comes to our environmental impact as a large manufacturer. We are exploring innovative ways to better manage water within each of the communities we operate in. Water management is particularly paramount in Queensland, where in 2009 Lion commissioned a water recycling plant for the Castlemaine Perkins Brewery – setting out to halve the water used in brewing XXXX Gold. A decade on, the brewery is approaching world-class standards in water management and is continually pushing the boundaries of conservation. Lion is also investing in numerous renewable energy projects, including a new $2 million solar power system at the Castlemaine Perkins Brewery in Queensland, which will cut its annual carbon emissions by approximately 1,260 tonnes, and generate enough electricity to power one hundred

and fifty Brisbane households. Lion is committed to ensuring 100% of its consumer packaging is recyclable by 2025, and that packaging is made from at least 50% recycled contents in the same time frame. For more than twenty years, Lion has invested in improving our packaging, reducing litter and increasing the recycling of our packaging. We started phasing out plastic rings on beer packaging ten years ago and the last plastic rings were removed from Lion-owned products three years ago. Plastic pollution is a complex, global issue that Lion is tackling on several fronts, both at a supply and demand level. We continue to evaluate alternative packaging technologies to further reduce the reliance on single-use plastic. Secondly, since supply chain changes can take time, we actively support programmes, such as REDcycle, which raise awareness and encourage our customers to ramp up their recycling efforts. Lastly, we are working with industry partners, such as the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation, to develop broader industry solutions that minimise the impact of our packaging and promote the circular economy to

minimise waste in the environment. As I began, sustainability has a broader definition at Lion than just our environmental program. We have been the single-biggest funder of culture change organisation DrinkWise Australia since its inception, as we are focused on accelerating the improving statistics on alcohol consumption in Australia and targeting those that continue to drink in harmful ways. More recently, we, along with many companies, are focusing on mental and social wellbeing, in terms of both our employees and the community. One of the building blocks of a positive community is social connection, and we believe local pubs and clubs play an important role in bringing people together. The importance of being connected with friends, family, and the wider community in an era of rapid technological change cannot be understated. We recently supported an independent study by professors from Western Sydney University and Oxford University, which found that individuals with a ‘local’ are more trusting and satisfied with life, and have broader support networks within their communities.

iquor Barons is Western Australia’s fastest growing, independently owned and operated liquor retail co-operative, with over 77 stores statewide. Our presence continues to expand year-on-year as we attract high quality retail sites into the group who share our focus on service and attention to detail. Located across WA, we support each store to drive an optimal, curated, consumerled range that suits their local market. To ensure this expansion continues, we are committed to making retail decisions as a retail business, with the understanding that one size does not fit all. As owners of the co-operative, the Liquor Barons members are the business decision-makers and are therefore highly engaged. Being wholly WA based and operated means we are attuned to the local market. We are not exclusively aligned with any one wholesaler, supplier or product, which gives us the flexibility we need to operate in this way. As the stores are the shareholders, every cent raised at a group level is returned to

them either in cash or services. We focus on forging mutually beneficial relationships with all of our suppliers, big and small, which we use to deliver efficient, cost-effective services to our members, who can then pass on competitively priced products to our customers. We operate a high technology business that conducts best-in-class, highly individual

innovative marketing campaigns from traditional print to digital media. At over $220 million annualised sales, Liquor Barons is a powerful buying group and can tailor its decisions across suburb lines; what works in Armadale may not work in Swanbourne, so we are constantly seeking innovative ways to operate as a group that best serves our individual members.

With 142 years of winemaking history, a strong family heritage and wealth of amazing stories to share, our sights are firmly set on growing and revitalising the McWilliam’s Wines Group. I’m proud to say our refreshed vision - ‘To pour our heritage into life’s occasions’ - is supported by values that not only resonate with who we are as a company but also with individual team members, all who play an important role in shaping our future success. We are taking a step-by-step approach to rebuilding consumer advocacy, refocusing on our own brands as well as our wider portfolio of consumer lead distributor brands. To strengthen our position as a leading producer of Australian style cool climate, high altitude wines, we’re introducing the new mediumbodied McW 480 Estate and McW Reserve 660 core ranges as well as adding new wine varietals such as Tempranillo through the McW Alternis range to encourage consumers to explore. Our McW Regional Collection has been developed to help consumers rediscover Australia’s iconic wine regions such as The Barossa and Yarra Valley, whilst we bring to life the legend of Maurice O’Shea and sharing the exceptional award-winning wines that form the Mount Pleasant story.

We are privileged to distribute some of the world’s major wine brands which are in growth categories including Mateus, the original Rosé, Champagne Taittinger and Henkell Sparkling. With the growth of Prosecco, we are excited to launch Mionetto, the world’s number 1 Italian Prosecco to our customers and consumers. The breadth of the McWilliam’s distributor range also expands to New Zealand’s Marlborough region via Framingham and Western Australia’s Margaret River with Evans & Tate brand alongside the award-winning Deep Woods range. Finally, we are proud of our heritage in fortified wines which the company was founded on and this year sees us re shape the offering for the modern fortified consumer. Organisationally McWilliam’s is evolving and bringing a new culture of accountability to the forefront, fuelled by new talent, passion and capability joining our team. With a stable of strong brands that we are proud to work with, we have heavily invested in our sales teams, to build deeper relationships with our retail partners adding value to their customers.

ithin the Sharp Group are wineries Jack Rabbit Vineyard, Leura Park Estate, Yes said the Seal as well as Flying Brick Cider Co. As a family owned and operated business, we are privileged to own more than 150 acres of vines spanning the spectacular Bellarine Peninsula. As a group, sustainability is a way of life, not a concept. We are continually looking for ways to extend our commitment to the environment. The management of our vineyards is founded on sustainable principles. All vines are hand pruned and many are handpicked and whole bunch pressed - not only to ensure maximum integrity of varietal flavour but also to ensure our environmental footprint is walking with Mother Nature. Wine quality is the monarch here, not volume. We treat and reuse all wastewater on the vineyard minimizing potable water usage. If irrigation is required, a target drip feed system, designed to specifically target

the base of each vine is activated. All vineyard clippings and harvest MOG (matter other than grape) is mulched to nourish the vines. One community collaboration involves green waste collection transformed into mulch. We are proud that when we say ‘minimal intervention’, it truly is the case. Any sprays or pesticides are naturally derived – think copper, chicken manure, pyretherum. This follows through in the wine making process. The majority of our wines undergo wild yeast fermentation (yeasts naturally occurring on the fruit itself). A focus on lateral integration extends to more than 800 sheep across all vineyards. This reduces the need for mechanical mowing, fertilises the vineyards and, further down the track, becomes signature local Menu protein. We are currently trialling a system to transform all kitchen food waste into vineyard compost that will improve soil structure, health and water retention. It addition to rigid recycling practices,

our Cellar Doors work with a local company which transforms all used cooking oil into biodiesel. We also source as much local produce as possible to showcase the wonderful community bounty and reduce our carbon footprint. On the cider front, our focus is crafting 100 per cent natural ciders. Established in 2010, Flying Brick Cider Co ciders are crafted from real Australian apples and pears, no colourings, concentrates, flavourings or sugars. Our cider maker Nyall Condon has been on the Executive of Cider Australia since foundation. Their focus on educating and inspiring consumers to actively seek out true Australian craft cider is coming to fruition. ‘True craft’ means Australian fruit, not imported - naturally derived flavours from fruit grown in a paddock, not developed in a laboratory. Supporting Australian fruit growers and fostering strong supply chains with good people on the land is a wonderful aspect of this mantra.

s a family owned spirits business founded in 1887 and traditionally famous for its award-winning whiskies, William Grant & Sons has grown to become one of the leading premium spirits challengers in Australia and around the world. With an exciting portfolio experiencing strong growth across key channels and aligned to broader macro trends for authenticity, sustainability and experience the future remains bright for our business. 2018 was another successful year for the Australian business with record growth of almost twice the spirits category, spearheaded by the performance of our Scotch portfolio which grew by 6.1 per cent MAT* the fastest growth of the top five Scotch manufacturers in market. Glenfiddich, the worlds most awarded Single Malt, maintained its leadership position in Australia. 2018 saw the launch of Glenfiddich Winter Strom, an ice wine finished 21YO Malt, which was supported by an on premise drive across the entire experimental range including a partnership with PS40 to create the perfect highball Sodas to pair with the Glenfiddich range

and suite of reusable bar assets including straws and glassware to tap into the growing trend for sustainable bartending. As a business we are committed to supporting our customers with the right tools to unlock category growth. As consumer tastes and motivations evolve, malt whisky is increasingly becoming the entry into Scotch and one of the single biggest opportunities we see is improving consumer knowledge of the category. 2019 sees the launch of a 3 year tour of ‘The Glenfiddich Whisky Wander’ a double decker bus experience aimed at engaging drinkers and demystifying the complex world of Scotch. Monkey Shoulder continues to make headlines, again named the world’s top trending Scotch. Its playful personality is helping break down traditional preconceptions of Scotch to introduce new drinkers to Whisky through the art of accessible cocktails. This approach has seen a shift in the traditional drinker profile, now more gender-balanced than ever with clear evidence that recruitment to the brand is coming from millennial drinkers. For many, 2018 will be remembered as

the year of gin, with the category responsible for more than 50 per cent of Australian spirits growth. Leading the original gin revival and continuing to push the boundaries is Hendricks. Hendricks continues to surprise and delight consumers with its quirky personality and experience-led marketing. Spiced rum, once the darling of the Australian spirits industry has faced tougher conditions in the last 12 months as consumers are more mindful than ever about health and moderation. Sailor Jerry, Australia’s number one spiced rum leveraged the brand passion points of music and tattoos, activating at festivals throughout summer to support a global packaging redesign which went live quarter four 2018. The introduction of 150k tattoo inspired tin cups a highlight activation for the brand, replaced all plastic and paper cups that had traditionally been used at festivals and outdoor bar activations, following feedback for more sustainable assets. Summer 2019 will see the introduction of a new to market innovation to capture consumer occasions of moderation and convenience supported through a full 360 marketing plan.

During these years Gary was also an Airline Captain with Ansett until 1989, when the Pilot’s Dispute ended his successful 18 year career. Declining offers to fly out of Singapore or Dubai for the sake of keeping the three children in schooling in Australia, Gary decided with the total support of Yvonne and the family, to relinquish flying and concentrate on D.W.S. This career refocus required reassessing the business as a whole and coming to the realisation that the company needed to broaden the portfolio to include the highest quality Australian Wines to help make it a viable and reputable company within the wine wholesaling educated trade. Today D.W.S. represents over 25 Australian Vineyards

Murray’s Brewing Company

DISTRIBUTOR, EXPORTER, MANUFACTURER Murray and the team have been brewing unique and off-beat naturally crafted beers since 2006, and in the process have won a bunch of awards and accolades – including Australia’s Brewer of the Year last year. The craft beer bug bit Murray a few years before this, when he was on a trip to America. Legend has it he tried a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale at a roadside diner in California – and thought he’d died and gone to beer heaven! This experience inspired him to open his own brewery, so he could brew and enjoy the beers he wanted to drink back home in Australia. The birthplace of Murray’s Craft Brewing Co was the tiny hamlet of Taylors Arm (population 50) on the NSW North Coast. Murray bought the iconic Pub With No Beer (of Slim Dusty fame), and quickly solved the supply problem by installing a microbrewery on site.

DISTRIBUTOR, IMPORTER Good Things come to those who wait… JJ’s (Jean-Jacques) extensive wine industry knowledge and experience complements his lifelong passion for wine. His career, spanning from 30 years of working in the Hospitality and Wine Industry, consisting of 10 years in Hospitality and 20 years in the Wine industry have ultimately led him to where he is today. This year is the launch of his wonderful venture into the foray of wine distribution with a point of difference, Introducing Paradox Wines. Your brand is your story. If it doesn’t come authentically from the heart, it will fail to inspire. If it isn’t creative and engaging, it won’t get noticed. If you’re not looking through your customer’s eyes, your competitors will be one step ahead. Each link in the marketing process - the heart, the mind, and creativity - communicates your story to the world. Paradox Wines provides a service in premium wine sales, such as; sourcing European wines, branding, wine list compilation, staff training, tasting, public speaking and wine assessment. We enable wineries to compete and differentiate in an often crowded global wine industry by equipping them with our creative business techniques, innovative and emerging brands and by building our brand equity. Above all, we deliver our services with professionalism, honesty and with integrity. JJ’s core extensive knowledge lies within the ‘on and off-premise’ trade and corporate management, which is where our business strategy will reside. Besides his professional accomplishments, JJ is the proud father of two sons with his wife and partner Paula. He has been known to spend many hours both falling off surfboards across the country, and confusing Australians with his French accent. Paradox Wines aims not to be the biggest but rather to provide a comprehensive suite of services to enhance your business. All of our imported wines are collected, and then shipped in temperature controlled containers “reefer” to ensure quality control.

DISTRIBUTOR, EXPORTER, MANUFACTURER, WHOLESALER From unlikely beginnings almost 120 years ago, the Tulloch story continues today as one of the most truly authentic and generational wine dynasties of modern times. In 1895, John Younie Tulloch owned the Branxton General Store and accepted an unusual settlement of a debt – a 43 acre property in nearby Pokolbin. Tulloch took an immediate liking to the property and the five acres of neglected Shiraz vines it contained and so began the accidental winemaking tradition that continues today. Now under the guidance of the 3rd generation, Jay Tulloch and 4th generation Christina Tulloch, who is CEO of the company, it is a contemporary Australian brand loved and revered for its philosophy of crafting premium wines for all generations of wine drinkers. With each generation that passes through the company ranks, the vision and vigour of the brand has remained relevant and contemporary while maintaining the sense of pride and tradition that has been the cornerstone of its success. In 2003 JYT’s youngest daughter Christina joined the company and is tasked with leading it into a new era. With a focus on sales and marketing and ensuring Tulloch continues to thrive for generations that follow, Tulloch is a labour of love and a lifelong career for her. Proudly pragmatic about wine styles and creating a future proof business, she is most at home at the cellar door talking to customers and living the brand. A passion for wine styles made for the Australian culture and lifestyle, combined with an unwavering commitment to quality and authenticity, has seen Tulloch endure for over a century as wine brand people are proud to put on their table. Handed down from generation to generation, the Tulloch story is equal parts pride and passion and remains as the true heritage of the Hunter Valley and Australia’s wine making history.
