Brewery news Japan: Manufacturers boost production in anticipation of consumer tax increase
Japanís manufacturers have boosted production in anticipation of a consumer binge ahead of the April 1 consumption tax hike, The Japan Times reported on February 9.

Since companies are already seeing last-minute demand before the tax climb to 8 percent from 5 percent, they are taking all possible measures to raise output.

Still, the growth in demand is not boosting regular employment or private-sector investment because manufacturers are cautious about the risk of substantially increasing inventories that could quickly become dated right after the tax hike.

Kirin Brewery Co. plans to boost production of its mainstay Ichiban Shibori beer by 20 percent in March compared with the previous year.


Brewery news World: The Hindu community urges AB InBev to change Brahma beer name
The Hindu community recently urged the Leuven (Belgium) headquartered global brewer Anheuser-Bush InBev to change the name of its popular 'Brahma' beer, calling it highly inappropriate, India Blooms reported on February 10. Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) on February 10, said that inappropriate usage of Hindu deities or concepts or symbols for commercial or other agenda was not okay as it hurt the devotees.

In Hinduism, the creator God, Lord Brahma, along with Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva, forms the great triad of Hindu deities.

Linking Lord Brahma with an alcoholic beverage was very disrespectful, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out.

Rajan Zed stressed that Lord Brahma was highly revered in Hinduism, meant to be worshipped in temples or home shrines and not to be used in selling beer for mercantile greed.

Zed noted that Hinduism is the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and a rich philosophical thought and it should not be taken lightly.

Symbols of any faith, larger or smaller, should not be mishandled, Zed argued.

Moreover, the sacredness attached to Lord Brahma did not go well with raunchy commercials and ads of 'Brahma' ...More info on site

Whisky news India: Supreme Court orders status quo on Diageo-United Spirits deal
Shares of United Spirits and United Breweries gained momentum in trade after the Supreme Court ordered a status quo on Diageo-United Spirits deal, The Economic Times reported on February 10.

The Supreme Court has set aside the Karnataka High Court order which had annulled the United Breweries Holding's (UBHL) sale of its stake in United Spirits to Diageo.

While the order has come as a breather for the Vijay Mallya - owned companies, the apex court has maintained that the winding-up pleas against UB Group will continue in the in Company court.

Notices have been issued by the Supreme Court to lenders on Diageo, UB Group pleas against the High Court order.

The next hearing on Diageo-UB Group plea against the Karnataka High Court order will be in April.

The Karnataka High Court had annulled the Diageo-UB Group following a winding-up petition filed by creditors against UBHL for dues of about Rs 600 crore pertaining to Kingfisher Airlines.

Diageo has agreed to take over United Spirits by buying out shares held by UB Group companies, but its efforts to secure a higher shareholding were thwarted by a tepid response to its open offer.
