The New Zealand wine industry continues to perform well on the back of profitability for wineries of all sizes, strengthening balance sheets and a healthy propensity for innovation.
The 2018 Wine Industry Benchmarking and Insights survey report, entitled Growing Smarter, tracks the financial results of 36 survey participants accounting for 44 percent of the industry by litres of wine produced, and 35 percent by export sales revenue generated.
The New Zealand wine industry continues to show sound financial metrics in 2017 on the back of profitability in all but the smallest wineries and strengthening balance sheets, positioning wine companies to take advantage of future growth opportunities.
After 10 years of producing this report, we undertook a comprehensive review of the survey process and report contents, with a specific focus on making it as easy as possible for wineries to participate and benefit in the value of benchmarking their businesses. It is with this in mind that we thank all of those who provided the valuable feedback that allowed us to ensure that the most important content and measures remained part of the survey.
The New Zealand wine industry continues to show sound financial metrics in 2015 on the back of profitability in all but the smallest wineries and stable or increased gross margins across the board, according to the tenth annual financial benchmarking survey released by Deloitte.
The turnaround in the New Zealand wine industry has continued in 2014 on the back of improved profitability across wineries of all sizes, according to the ninth annual financial benchmarking survey released today by Deloitte and New Zealand Winegrowers.
Vintage 2013 produced a record harvest of 345,000 tonnes of grapes; up significantly from the low 2012 vintage, however key learnings coming out of the tough times endured from 2008 are believed to be standing the industry in good stead to be able to deal with this increased supply.
The results of the seventh annual survey on the whole confirms further improvement but there is certainly still a long way to go to be at a point where the financial returns from the industry provide an appropriate financial return on the capital invested.
Trends that were present in past surveys of wineries being unable to make a profit, despite cutting costs and with relatively high inventory balances and debt levels remain.
