TITLE: Global Wine Sustainability – Certifications & Consumer Demand
The presentation will cover two topics. First, will be an introduction and background to the Global Wine Sustainability Certifications. The results of a survey, conducted in 2016 of all certifying bodies, demonstrate problems with consistency, scope, transparency, management and more. Next, we will delve into preliminary results from a survey completed in May 2019, about environmental wine certifications: sustainable, organic, fair trade, biodynamic, and natural. Data was collected in Australia, USA, France Italy, S. Africa, and Chile. It asked consumers what they know about these certifications and their willingness to pay for more environmentally friendly wines?
