B2B beverage marketplace, Kaddy, has launched a Kaddy Community, a platform that will focus on restarting industry conversations post-pandemic and will feature opinion pieces, industry profiles and more.
Kaddy Community will be headed up by industry writer, Andrew Graham, who said the format of the platform was not arrived at by accident.
“In recent years, I’ve felt like the drinks world has become more and more fragmented. All the friends and colleagues I have made from the industry seem further apart during a time when we really needed to come together,” Graham said.
“Community offers an answer – a platform where anyone from brewers to journalists, cellar hands to CEOs, can jump on and discuss what’s happening in drinks. I’m pumped to be helping start those conversations and tell the industry’s stories.
“We’ve shaped the platform based on a series of research reports. We quickly learnt that everyone would love a central drinks social networking platform, but with more relevancy than just another Linkedin or a wine/beer/spirits forum.
“So, we made Kaddy Community a broad church. A go-to destination where you can connect with peers, catch up on the industry trends/insights and have a chat about the issues that count.”
Some of the topics covered so far include a deep dive into the future of Australian whisky with spirits judge Luke McCarthy, a profile of famed Sydney retailers Winona Wines and a feature on the hospitality hiring crisis with sommelier Samantha Payne.
