Value key for UK: Foster's

28 August, 2009

Foster’s is developing its lower-end offering in the UK, while pushing more premium innovations abroad in the face of the economic downturn.

Managing director Peter Jackson said: “In the UK, there is an increasing focus on value, so we are working on the introduction of a stronger value proposition,

particularly in our Lindemans range.”

In Foster’s full-year results, released this week, the company said its innovation was focused on higher-margin markets outside the UK, with the launch of South African, Italian and Californian wines.

Jackson said: “The UK market is very difficult due to the current financial situation.

“We have found that demand for more premium products is increasingly coming from our European customers.”

Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
