France: Champagne trades increase last year

(MENAFN) France’s Comite Champagne trade organization, which shows more than 16,000 winegrowers and 320 champagne houses, registered record high trades last year.

It added that France traded a notable high of 180 million bottles of champagne last year, which is a 38 percent rise in contrast to 2020, while whole deliveries increased 32 percent to 322 million bottles, regardless of the lasting effects of global epidemic lockdowns that resulted in the closing of many bars and restaurants. In general, worldwide trades reached almost USD6.2 billion.

As stated by Maxime Toubart, co-leader of the Comite Champagne “This recovery is a welcome surprise for the people of Champagne after a troubled 2020 (with figures down by 18 percent) impacted by the closure of main points of consumption and the shortage of celebratory events across the world.”
