Wine Report 2010 reveals supplier confidence

08 July, 2010

Wine suppliers are forecasting better times ahead in OLNís annual Wine Report poll.

The survey of 50-plus wine suppliers, ranging from the big players to small agencies, showed 83% were confident sales would increase over the coming year.

Only 4% anticipated sales would decrease over the same period.

The long-term expectations of suppliers were even more optimistic. Over the next five to 10 years, 96% were confident their sales would grow.

The survey also found that 27% of respondents had bucked the trend in the economic downturn by taking on new staff last year. A further 20% said they were planning to expand workforces Ė almost double that of last yearís report.

In 2009, 2% of respondents said they expected to lay off staff in the coming year, compared with none this year.

Fourteen per cent made redundancies compared with 21% last year.
