Caraïbos introduces its partners.
The French Association of Bartenders (Association des Barmen de France) -ABF
ABF is a member of the International Bartenders Association and is the only official bartender association in France.
It brings together experienced bartenders who come mostly from a catering school background and whose work respects the ethics advocated by this training. It also maintains close ties with brands of spirits, soft drinks and other bar products and has chosen Caraïbos as a fruit juices partner for its events, notably the Bar and Bartener Trade Show.
The International Bartenders Association (IBA)
The International Bartenders Association was established in 1951 and is the official international association representing the profession.
The goal of the IBA is to promote the bartendering worldwide by facilitating the exchange of ideas, organising international competitions and by establishing a specific code for the profession. Caraïbos is an exclusive partner of the IBA and particularly for the World Cocktail Championships which it has partnered since 2007.
The Bar Academy Partnerships
The Bar Academy is a training school specialising in the unique European flair..
Situated on the edge of Paris, it receives several hundred students each year from France and abroad. Its set-up is entirely geared to the practice and training of flair. The Bar Academy tutors are among the best flair bartenders on the world scene and recognise the quality of Caraïbos fruit juices.
The catering schools
In September 2011, Caraïbos set up the 1st Fruit Juices course for bartender training in catering schools.
This initiative has once again experienced great success this year with 37 member establishments, 44 professors and 538 students having followed the training. And so the adventure continues which is the real measure of success for the brand!

The A.P.E.B. was officially established in 2002 and is a key player in the training sector.
It offers genuine exchanges of experience as well as support and ideas and brings together the different stakeholders of the bartendering profession. Its principle objective is to unite the action of its members to provide quality education, recognised by the profession.
