Wine & Spirit Committee Kick Off in Stellenbosch

On Wednesday 12th of June in Stellenbosch, the French South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry organised the Wine & Spirit Committee Kick Off.

The FSACCI organised the Wine & Spirit Committee Kick Off in Stellenbosch on Wednesday, June 12. 

It is through committees and think-tank groups, members working within the same industry or those with similar business interests that we can can share information, exchange ideas and develop common actions to the benefit of businesses and sectors.

Being a committee member gives you a unique opportunity to get first-hand business information through the sharing of professional experiences and industry updates.

This committee aims to serve as a platform for the exchange of information and networking within the various wine/spirit sector stakeholders. It will mostly impact wine/spirit makers, but will also be beneficial to other stakeholders and services that have links within this sector. Importantly, it must connect South Africa and France by fostering unique and positive exchanges.
