In an effort to connect French producers with global buyers in the digital age, Business France’s cutting-edge B2B platform, Taste France Wine and Spirits, has been making waves since its 2018 launch. Designed by Business France, the national agency bolstering the international development of the French economy, the platform promises to be a game-changeer in wine and spirits sourcing.
Aimed at streamlining and enhancing trade opportunities between French producers and importers, retailers, and wholesalers, this platform has already attracted a significant following with a repository of over 26,000 products from 2,300 verified French companies since its launch in 2018. Furthermore, it boasts an impressive roster of more than 5,000 international buyers.
With categories spanning Red Wines, White Wines, Rosé Wines, Sparkling Wines, Spirits, Ciders, and Beers, the platform emphasizes the precision matching of demand and supply.
