Coles Liquor has become the latest major participant to join the peak industry body Alcohol Beverages Australia (ABA).
Chairman Bryan Fry made the announcement this week, saying Coles Liquor was a significant business in the industry and an important participant for ABA to have at the table.
“Coles Liquor is a leading voice in Australian business and its membership is a great boost for the ABA operation.
“We’re delighted to welcome the Coles Liquor team into ABA and we look forward to their insight and experience as we refine our activity and operation to support the industry and protect the rights of our 15.5 million customers,” Fry said.
Coles Liquor Director Greg Davis said he looked forward to working with industry counterparts to highlight the many positive contributions the industry makes across the country and to better engage with regulatory and community stakeholders.
“Coles is committed to promoting the responsible consumption of our products and we look forward to working with other ABA members to ensure best practice across the industry,” Davis said.
Coles Liquor joins existing ABA retail members including Australian Liquor Marketers (ALM), Endeavour Drinks Group (EDG) and the Australian Liquor Stores Association (ALSA).
