Foster's EMEA has revamped Australian brand Rosemount, in a bid to make it stand out again and to boost distribution. Lindemans is being converted into an international brand - the group is already pushing Lindemans Chile, and South African wines may join the portfolio. Foster's Group has been split into three businesses covering Australia, Asia and the Pacific; the Americas; and Europe, the Middle East and Africa, but the changes have not affected the UK. Mike Bentley, who was responsible for multiple grocers and specialists, has joined Enotria as off-trade sales director.
