Here at Urban Spirit, we are thrilled to be offering our bar hire and bartender services in Wales. This is because Wales is full of amazing venues and party planners, with areas like Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and Bridgend being perfect destinations for weddings, birthday parties, corporate dos and the likes.

Wanting to see more of Wales in 2019, we were thrilled to learn of the country’s plans with regards to its drinks industry.

The Food and Drink Wales Industry Board (FDWIB) has this week announced details of their Drinks Strategy for Wales. In essence, this is a framework that aims to put Wales on the map. Positioning the Welsh as great producers of spirits, cider, bottled water, and low alcohol and alcohol-free beer is the loose plan.

That said, the country already turns over £800 million with a retail sales value of £950 million.

The ambition of the board is to however improve and sustain the industry over the next five-year period. This will include combatting the skills shortage by engaging with National Skills Academy for Food and Drink.

Andy Richardson, chair of the Food and Drink Wales Industry Board, said:

“The development of the drinks sector strategy marks a key stage of the Drinks Cluster’s journey. Initial cluster activity has revealed a number of strategic priorities which respond to the industry’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

“The next step for the cluster will involve working within Special Interest Groups to develop an identity and marketing strategy tailored to each sector’s positioning and needs. Our aim is that by working together on the key strategic priorities we will; help build Welsh drink brands both at home and abroad; improve skills and knowledge across the sector to support innovation and increase the environmental performance of the drinks industry.”
