The drinks industry makes a significant contribution to the Welsh economy, with a turnover in excess of £800m, a Welsh retail sales value of over £950m and employing 1,200 people.

While still in its infancy, the Drinks Cluster has made progress on raising the profile of the Welsh drinks sector through a number of events, identified key strategic priorities to support the growth of the industry and brought like-minded drinks companies together to collaborate on tackling some common challenges.

The Welsh drinks industry is broad and complex with diverse sub-sectors including beer, cider, wine, spirits, bottled water, soft drinks, fruit juice, hot drinks, dairy and non-dairy drinks. Company size and scale ranges from micro to large international companies.
