About

Fine People Limited t/a Finery

Our Mission

 

To reshape our drinking culture by making “Better For You” beverage options readily available for all occasions.

Letter from the Founder

 

To our finest people,

 

It is with the sincerest gratitude that we have your attention to consider becoming a co-owner of Finery.

 

In 2018 I embarked on a health and fitness journey to take better care of myself after becoming a mother of two. The choice to take a whole food approach was my own and what I discovered during this process was by removing artificial ingredients, reducing my alcohol intake and exercising gave me the most incredible health benefits.

 

I was training vigorously, but it was what went in my mouth with food and drink that made 90% of the difference to how I felt days and even weeks after. By reducing my alcohol, eating whole foods and removing sugars I had more energy, slept better, and had mental clarity.

 

Life doesn’t always go to plan and I was being caught out. I love to socialise, but going out and being asked why I wasn’t drinking is tiring and often staying at home felt like an easier option. If I did go out and have a drink my sleep and my eating would suffer. Harder to train and harder to function in general.

 

This is where the idea of Finery began. Creating convenient but premium, making a beverage from real ingredients, creating a light, refreshing, subtle and sessionable drink that brings no regrets the next day and allows you to get on with your finest life, and even better if I really don’t want the alcohol I don’t have to have it. It looks the same, tastes the same but gives you the personal choice to drink or not, guilt-free.

 

Three years into the Finery beverage journey more than 151,271 people have experienced Finery in our low or no alcohol options. In times that I am lucky enough to converse with our consumers the stories they love to tell me about their experience with Finery and why they drink us are all similar.

 

Finery makes them feel like they are treating themselves, it helps them drink less alcohol, they don’t feel unwell after too many and love that it removes the social stigma of not drinking. We launched with a drive to make beverages with a nothing to hide approach representing moderation, our mission has amplified to changing our drinking cultures by equally representing low and no alcohol in the same shape and form to allow our Finery consumers to make the best choice for them.

 

My personal mission at Finery is to ensure that by the time my two young boys reach a legal drinking age that our drinking cultures and mindsets have been shifted for healthier relationships with alcohol, that our binge cultures are history and that our generations to come are not exposed to the negative effects that misuse can bring to families and communities.

 

Until now we have been family-owned and operated, my husband and I with our two children live and work on the North Shore of Auckland and have self funded Finery. We know to ensure we grow at pace and to reach our vision for Finery we need to invite the finest people to join our Finery team. No matter how big or small your investment is with us, we thank you for believing in our vision and becoming part of The Fine People. We will deliver the finest better for you beverages to the world for every drinking occasion, with health, wellbeing and convenience top of mind.

Distribution ChannelsWe currently cover just 24% of the New Zealand grocery network with an average of 2.5 SKU's performing with increased rates of sale. Focus will commence with On premise in NZ, new range launches and e-commerce for 1st and 2nd Qtr 2025.

Market Overview

 

The Ready to Drink (RTD) beverage industry is undergoing a transformative shift, driven by changing consumer preferences, health-conscious lifestyles, and a growing demand for non-alcoholic and low-alcohol options. Finery, based in Auckland, New Zealand, is well-positioned to capitalise on this evolving landscape by offering a diverse range of RTD beverages, including both 0% ABV and 5% ABV varieties, across various flavours.

 

Current Landscape

The New Zealand and Australian markets present substantial growth opportunities for Finery. Approximately 58% of the drinking population seeks out non-alcohol alternatives, representing a sizable consumer base. The company’s strategic initiatives, including expanding grocery distribution, on-premise activations, and collaborations with corporate partners, aim to penetrate this market further. In Australia, the RTD beverage sector is witnessing remarkable changes. The non-alcoholic drinks market is projected to experience a volume growth of over 16% by 2024, with the NoLo (No and Low Alcohol) spirits segment expected to achieve approximately 14% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in volume. The category’s growth is attributed to consumers’ heightened awareness of health-oriented choices, influencing the preference for NoLo beverages.

 

Market Size & Growth

The global NoLo beverages market has experienced robust growth, capturing 3% of the overall alcoholic beverage market, valued at $10 billion in 2021.* The NoLo category is seeing a huge increase in demand from non-drinkers as well as traditional drinkers opting for NoLo alternatives on select occasions, accompanied by an overall shift to healthier lifestyles and moderation. The RTD/ Spirits category is growing at 14% p.a. to 2025 (versus alcoholic beverages at 0.7%).** 0% Finery has experienced a 41.32% (CAGR) with the complete Finery business returning 14.15% (CAGR) and projected growth to 2026 of 72.66% (CAGR).

 

Consumer Behaviour and Preferences

The shift towards healthier lifestyles, moderation, and reduced alcohol consumption is a defining trend among consumers. The NoLo movement resonates strongly with this sentiment, driven by various factors such as the desire to avoid the effects of alcohol, embrace moderation, and align with personal health goals. This shift is most evident in the 18-44 age group, with this demographic being twice as likely to consume NoLo products compared to those over 45. Consumers’ appreciation of taste is a significant driver in the adoption of NoLo beverages, with 33% of NoLo consumers choosing these products due to the focus on flavour. The industry’s consistent innovation in replicating flavour sensations traditionally associated with alcoholic beverages has yielded complex and enticing options that cater to evolving palates.

 

Future Outlook

Finery’s expansion efforts align with the burgeoning NoLo movement, offering consumers a diverse range of high-quality RTD beverages that cater to both non-alcoholic and low-alcohol preferences. With an extensive network of grocery outlets and on-premise locations across New Zealand and Australia, along with the momentum of changing consumer behaviours, Finery is poised to capture a significant share of the expanding market. The company’s focus on product innovation, strategic partnerships, and alignment with consumer values sets the stage for sustained growth and success in the evolving beverage industry.

Investors are entitled to the same rights as they would directly on the share register. Please read the Deed Poll for more information.

 

Our Financials

 

You can read our historic financials, forecast financials as well as our assumptions in our full investment document here.

 

 

Risk Mitigation

 

Competition Risk

The alcoholic RTD and NoLo alcohol spaces are competitive. The Company is a first mover and operates a differentiated model, but could lose market share if more players in the market took the approach.

Mitigation: The Company will maintain their focus on the premium markets in which they have made their name. The Company’s customer base is likely to be sticky if the company maintains its quality and range.

 

Key personnel risk

The Company has a number of key team members integral to the running and growth of the business. If one or more of these individuals were to leave the business, failure to replace them adequately may harm company objectives.

Mitigation: The Company incentivises key individuals with equity and options in the business to ensure they are fully aligned with the success of the Company.

 

Brand risk

The Company has created a strong brand reputation in its several years of operation. With expansion comes the risk that core brand values are diluted and lost with scale, which may impact the underlying value of the business.

 

Mitigation: The Company’s intended approach to expansion involves reaching out to independent distributors to allow the Company to maintain its craft distillery feel and avoid losing quality or authenticity with scale.

 

Funding risk

The Company is raising capital to fund its growth plans. Should insufficient capital be raised, or if costs are higher than anticipated, the Company might need to raise additional capital or risk not meeting its business objectives.

Mitigation: The Company will intend to redistribute the allocation of funds raised to areas most needed for business improvement. The Company may also opt to carry out an additional funding round.

 

 

Note from PledgeMe

Warning statement about equity crowdfunding

Equity crowdfunding is risky.

Issuers using this facility include new or rapidly growing ventures. Investment in these types of business is very speculative and carries high risks.

You may lose your entire investment, and must be in a position to bear this risk without undue hardship.

New Zealand law normally requires people who offer financial products to give information to investors before they invest. This requires those offering financial products to have disclosed information that is important for investors to make an informed decision.

The usual rules do not apply to offers by issuers using this facility. As a result, you may not be given all the information usually required. You will also have fewer other legal protections for this investment.

Ask questions, read all information given carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself.
