The International Federation of Wines and Spirits was founded in July 1951 to serve the interests of the beer, wine and spirits sector. Its membership encompasses all alcoholic beverage industry players, including producers, distributors, importers and merchants.
The FIVS is a non-governmental organisation that gathers and transmits information on all aspects of the alcoholic beverage industry to its members. It works to build consensus, helping to defend the rights of its members under the rules of the WTO, OIV, Codex and other major international organisations.
