Gage Roads’ existing contract ends on June 30, 2019 and the new term under this contract will commence on July 1, 2019 through to the end of FY 2022 subject to the completion of formal documentation.
The contract covers a number of exclusive brands that Gage Roads is currently producing for Pinnacle Drinks.
While the new contract does not contain any minimum volume commitments, the volume expectations outlined in the tender are anticipated to be up to 460,000 cases per annum (3.6 million litres).
This contract is in keeping with the 5-year proprietary brand strategy and the volumes awarded under this tender are directly aligned with Gage Roads’ vision for FY20, FY21 and FY22.
