New Zealand Beverage Council (NZBC): The NZBC represents the manufacturers of New Zealand's juice, carbonated drink and bottled water brands, and their suppliers. It's members represent over 95 percent of all juice and non-alcoholic beverages sold at retail level in New Zealand. The organisation acts as a forum to discuss issues of concern and interest to the industry, as a lobby group, and as an advocate for consumer education on health & nutrition issues. It also organises and hosts the New Zealand Juice & Beverage Awards every year at its annual conference.

The new NZBC website incorporates consumer information about a range of issues facing the industry, and the role of commercially available fruit juices and beverages in a healthy diet. Product definitions, recommended guidelines, nutritional information, labelling, obesity, dental health, industry self-regulation, advertising, taxes, and low energy products - all are addressed in detail. Member companies are also listed, with links to media releases, research and other useful resources:
