We inform the public about everything that is important in the wine industry. We promote responsible alcohol consumption.

We consider ourselves a continuator of the Polish Wine Council (formerly the National Council of Wine and Mead Making), which has operated since 1991 under the auspices of the Scientific and Technical Association of Food Industry Engineers and Technicians. In 2015, our members decided to establish an independent organisation – the Association of Employers.

We are a member of the AICV – the only organisation that represents European Union producers of ciders and fruit wines. This means that our opinion counts in international discussions. We also exchange experience and build relationships that strengthen the industry’s standing in Europe.
