The Management Board of Jantoń, one of the largest producers and distributors of wines and wine products on the Polish market, decided to change the name of the company to JNT Group S.A. Sp.K. The adoption of the new name is related to the dynamic development of the company and its expansion into international markets. The change came into force on 1 July.
After numerous acquisitions made by Jantoń, the company now also includes Platinum Wines and Wino Makłowicz or Makłowicz Poleca. The new name therefore emphasizes the expanded structure of the group. At the same time, it will facilitate communication and expansion on international markets. In connection with this change, the company’s logo has also been slightly modified since 1 July.

Beer is undoubtedly one of the most important product categories for small-format stores up to 300 m2. It is the most common type of alcohol responsible for about 15% of turnover at an average small-format store. According to CMR data, beer is purchased by every fourth customer who buys 3 packages of the hop-flavoured beverage on average. Interestingly, it is often the only product of a shopping basket, especially in the case of the lower-price-shelf variants. However, other purchased products usually include snacks or other alcoholic beverages.

The higher tax will most likely apply to ethyl alcohol, beer, wine and wine products. Cider and perry, taxed at a preferential excise tax rate of PLN 97 per 1 hl of finished product, have been excluded from the indexation.
