How would NZX wine stocks benefit from Free Trade Agreement?


  • Both NZ- and UK-based wine trade bodies have welcomed the FTA signed between the two nations, which would likely see the removal of tariffs on Kiwi wine exports to the British nation.
  • Marlborough Wine Estates Group has announced to hold its ASM in the last month of the year.
  • Foley Wines would conduct an online Annual Meeting next month.

Recently, the Free Trade Agreement signed between New Zealand and the United Kingdom would greatly benefit wine manufacturers as well as wine connoisseurs across both the countries.

UK authorities have announced removing tariffs and reducing trade barriers on a wide range of NZ goods, though exact details have not been disclosed.  

It is pointed out that NZ wines are the sixth-largest wine category by value in the British nation, and its wine drinkers love premium NZ wines like Sauvignon Blanc wine, etc., which could now be cheaper to purchase owing to the Free Trade Agreement.

With this backdrop, let us cast a glance at the top NZX wine stocks which are slated to draw benefits from the recent FTA between the two countries.
