 The Australian Beverages Council is affiliated with a number of organisations. Through our affiliates, we share industry updates, regulatory changes and policy reforms.

International Council of Beverages Associations

The International Council of Beverages Associations (ICBA) is an international non-government organisation established in 1995 that represents the interests of the worldwide non-alcoholic beverage industry. The members of ICBA include national and regional beverage associations as well as international beverage companies that operate in more than 200 countries and territories and produce, distribute, and sell a variety of non-alcoholic sparkling and still beverages, including soft drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks, bottled waters, flavoured and/or enhanced waters, ready-to-drink teas and coffees, fruit and vegetable juices, nectars and juice drinks, and dairy-based beverages. The ICBA is headquartered in Washington DC, United States.

International Council of Bottled Water Associations

The International Council of Bottled Water Associations (ICBWA) is a membership organisation created to represent the bottled water industry worldwide. The ICBWA is currently composed of six regional association members, each of which covers a separate geographical territory. Through this structure, the ICBWA represents over 1,567 companies in 121 countries throughout the world. 
The mission of the ICBWA is to further strengthen and promote the global bottled water industry by supporting and adhering to rigorous international product quality standards, by facilitating learning and providing a flow of information about the bottled water industry, among its members, international agencies and stakeholders. The ICBWA is based in Ontario, Canada.

International Fruit and Vegetable Juice Association

The International Fruit and Vegetable Juice Association (IFU) was formed in 1949 and is the only representative of the worldwide fruit and vegetable juice and nectar industry. The members of IFU are producers of juices and related products, associations, traders, machinery and packaging producers, public and private scientific institutions from around the world.

IFU brings together members of the juice community by promoting collaboration and best practice through active commissions such as legislation, methods of analysis, science & technology and marketing. The Legislation Commission represents the juice community as an NGO at Codex Alimentarius. The IFU monitors the relevant activities of the WHO, WTO and WCO. IFU methods are recognised by Codex for juice analysis and are therefore used by the juice community worldwide to ensure safety and quality throughout the supply chain, from farm to glass. The IFU is based in Paris, France.

Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation

The Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) is a co-regulatory, not-for-profit organisation partnering with government and industry to reduce the environmental impact of packaging in Australian communities. APCO delivers this model of shared responsibility through the promotion of sustainable packaging activities including sustainable design, recycling initiatives, waste to landfill reduction and circular economy projects. Co-regulation means businesses and government have a shared responsibility and goals to deliver sustainable packaging alternatives to Australian consumers. APCO’s role is to guide industry toward these goals through innovation, inspiration and influence. APCO is based in Sydney, Australia.

Associations Forum

The mission of Associations Forum is ‘bringing associations together to boost performance’. Associations Forum is the leading organisation assisting associations and charities in governance, operations, membership and finances. Established in 2004, Associations Forum is a commercial, member-based network of 500 associations, charities, clubs, societies and other not-for-profit organisations. The organisation also shares knowledge and best practice within the association and charities sector through a range of educational events and services. Associations Forum is based in Sydney, Australia.
