Company Profile

About This Report

Oct 2014

Formed as a result of Constellation Brands’s divestment of its UK and Australian operations, Accolade was the world’s eighth largest wine player in 2013. The company inherited a position where it was overly reliant on the low-margin UK and Australian markets, which the new owner is now trying to address. This profile looks at how the new owner is going about how it is doing this and what else it could do.
