The Wall Street Journal’s beverage reporter, Jennifer Maloney, helps the Rabobank team unpack a busy 2018 and predict the most important trends for 2019. In this fiery episode, everyone gets to choose one major story from 2018... then the group debate how it will impact the future of the beverage industry. At the end of the episode, we vote for our 'Story of the Year.' Will it be cannabis and Constellation Brand’s USD 3.9bn investment in Canopy Growth, or will it be e-commerce, soft drinks companies entering the coffee business, or changes to beverage alcohol distribution? You’ll have to tune in to find out.
This episode also features the usual crew: global strategist Stephen Rannekleiv, senior analyst Jim Watson, and analyst Bourcard Nesin.
