Success comes to Founders First as annual range reviews for national retailers are completed, +2000 distribution points across national Australian retailers have been secured.
Total pack beer distribution points across the portfolio will increase from August after Founders First secured additional distribution through Coles (Liquorland, First Choice Liquor and Vintage Cellars) and Woolworths (Dan Murphy’s and BWS).
“These results reflect both the quality of our portfolio of craft beer products and the unique capability that the FFL sales team (Indie Craft Collective) brings to the table. We expect distribution gains to be balanced across all channels once the outcomes in the Independent channel and On-premise are finalised. We are very pleased with the outcome and excited for our brand partners.” Mr Haysman said.
Six new products to hit the shelves of the National Retailers from August will be (ranging will vary by banner/state):
