S3 Newsletter #3/2017

September 2017

Dear Friend,


Wishing you had a great holiday season, we are back with most likely the most complete S3 Newsletter ever, since we started publishing our quarterly bulletins in 2011.

Although also in exports we have an interesting contribution about new sales point for our wines in Changsha, it is – as has been the tendency the last few years – mainly the area of sourcing that has generated the majority of news items.

But similarly in the field of management teaching there has been a lot of activity, with new agreements – including with the Autonomous University of Barcelona – all of which we will highlight in this edition of the S3 Newsletter.

Wishing you all a great time reading this bulletin, we look forward to your feedback..
Warm regards from Barcelona

Tom Van der Heyden
Co-Founder and CEO – SGroup
