The Drinks Community is now live to support industry professionals

The Drinks Community, The Drinks Trust’s new skills sharing, networking and wellbeing platform, is now live.

Following the announcement of the launch earlier this year, the platform has been in a trial period for the last month, and has already had over 700 professionals in the UK drinks industry sign up as members.

The new, interactive platform launched by the charity is a place for professionals to share knowledge, raise sector-specific questions, and will provide the bridge between disciplines, specialisms, and product channels. It is also a space for the industry to support one another at a time where connection will be key to the recovery.

Members will have the opportunity to develop in their careers through access to both inspirational and practical advice, which will be delivered through online features, forums, and videos.

The Drinks Trust Chief Executive, Ross Carter said: “The Drinks Community will be the voice of drinks people, from the point of production to the point of sale. Together, we will create, curate and share the most relevant and exciting resources that will help grow careers and connect more people across our vibrant industry. We will offer the services and opportunities that will help our people become more skilled, ultimately making our sector stronger, smarter, more connected, more resilient and more diverse.

“First and foremost, The Drinks Community will exist to deliver on a genuine need within the drinks industry, particularly now, at a time when community will be central to the recovery of the drinks and hospitality sectors.”

The new initiative will also give members the chance to be a regular donator to The Drinks Trust, SWA’s Charity Partner. Membership levels include; Free Membership, £5 monthly donations and £10 monthly donations with funds going towards continuing to support the charity in its services for drinks professionals.
