Hello Summer… Register now for your chance to win.

Cafe Culture and The Alternative Dairy Co (ADC) are proud to announce a brand new competition to welcome the Australian heat – The Alternative “Hello Summer” Competition. 

The vision for this competition is to showcase the important revenue area of the Australian Café Industry. We want to highlight the café operator’s skill at creating a delicious iced drink, using the amazing ADC plant milks to compliment their creations.

Iced drinks in summer can make up 50% of revenue of a café’s income if they are presented and marketed correctly to the customer.

The competition will help café operators focus on this important part of the café beverage menu, whilst aiding cafes with free promotion via Cafe Culture and The Alternative Dairy Co social channels – that’s right this is $6000 of marketing for FREE!

Not only this, but your winning drinks will also be included in an upcoming official Alternative Dairy Co recipe booklet, promoting the cafe’s incredible drink concoction.  

So what’re you waiting for? Say Hello to Summer and register now for your chance to win some amazing prizes!
