GLOBAL CIDER FORUM enters the next round

The AICV, which unites all leading manufacturers, is organizing this year's 2nd Global Cider Forum in the heart of the Main metropolis. The congress will provide interesting and important insights into the beverage segment cider, which is gaining ground worldwide.

About 150 participants from all over the world are expected to attend – producers, suppliers, from research to sales – to compare notes on the market situation in various countries, on legal requirements, on new marketing trends and the supply of raw materials.

The Global Cider Forum will take place on the 6th of September 2018 in Frankfurt am Main at the Frankfurt School of Finance. The Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, one of the leading business schools in Germany, offers an excellent infrastructure for a successful event on its new campus.         

 

The network dinner on the eve of the Forum will take place in the Fleming's Selection Hotel Frankfurt-City.

 

Frankfurt am Main, with its international airport, the ICE train station and the autobahn network does not only provide the ideal transportation infrastructure but has always been a stronghold of cider culture as well.

BACKGROUND

Cidre in France, Cider in England and the United States, Sidra in Spain – the fermented drink made from apples is known all over the world. The cider market is one of the fastest growing beverage markets, particularly in Eastern Europe, the US, Australia and South Africa. The producers brought their traditional products into our modern times with new packaging and clever marketing concepts and they can now expect that demand will continue to increase.

​One distinctive characteristic of the industry is the structure of its businesses. Sizes range from small to medium-sized cider producers up to the global players of the beverage industry such as Heineken or Carlsberg which made cider one of their key products.

In Europe, cider and fruit wine businesses are represented by the European Cider and Fruit Wine Association – AICV, either as direct members or through national associations.
