… That searches for sustainable goods have increased globally by 71% since 2016? Products carrying a sustainability claim have continued growing through the COVID-19 pandemic, capturing a 17% market share during the first half of 2020! Sheila Bonini, senior vice president of private sector engagement at WWF US states:

"Sustainable and planet-friendly products used to be a niche market. Today, that's no longer the case. The research backs up what we've seen anecdotally over the years -- demand is there."

Tell the Trade You are SIP Certified

According to research from Wine Intelligence and Full Glass Research in 2019, 73% of buyers in the trade feel that the demand for sustainably produced products has increased over the past five to 10 years, and 76% think it will increase in the next five to 10 years.

“Clear and highly visible labeling” on wine packages is one of the best ways to differentiate your product on the market, so buyers will know your wine was produced sustainably when you can’t be there to tell them.
