Brewery news Vietnam: Investment funds group Dragon Capital purchases 15.3 mln shares of Sabeco
Dragon Capital, a Vietnam-focused group of investment funds, has purchased 15.3 million shares of Saigon Beer Alcohol and Beverage Corp (Sabeco) from Singapore-based Nogard Pte. Ltd, according to Vietnam Securities Depository (VSD), DEALSTREETASIA reported on March 16.

In its latest announcement, VSD said the shares were bought from Nogard by seven funds of Dragon Capital including Aquila SPC Ltd Hanoi Investments Holdings Limited, KB Vietnam Focus Balanced Fund, Norges Bank, DC Developing Markets Strategies Public Limited Company, Vietnam Enterprise Investments Limited (VEIL) and Viola Ltd.

The transaction’s value was not disclosed. However, based on Sabeco’s share price of VND214,000 ($9.4) per share on March 15, the transaction’s value is estimated at VND3.27 trillion ($143.8 million). Among seven funds, VEIL received the largest number of Sabeco shares with over 8 million shares.

Currently, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Vietnam Beverage, a local unit in which ThaiBev holds a stake, own approximately 89.6 per cent stake of Vietnam’s largest brewer. The remaining is owned by Dragon Capital and some other investors.

Brewery news USA: MillerCoors splits millennial generation with the purpose of selling more beer
MillerCoors has invented a generation that’s younger than millennials but old enough to legally imbibe, the Toronto Star reported on March 14.

The purpose is to sell more beer, which has been losing business to wine and hard liquor for a decade. MillerCoors, the U.S. division of Molson Coors Brewing Co., is gearing its marketing to 21- to 24-year-olds, a slice of the population the company characterizes as “curious,” “pragmatic” and still virginal when it comes to drinking beer.

Demographers would say this cohort is part of the millennial generation, which outnumbers the baby boomers and is defined by the U.S. Census Bureau as people born between 1982 and 2000. But MillerCoors says there are important differences between millennials and the new generation the beer maker created but hasn’t named.

“There’s just this more openness versus what we’ve seen with millennials,” said Sofia Colucci, senior director of innovation at MillerCoors. “They’re curious and while they’re pragmatic, they still have this genuine openness to discovering and trying new things.”

These attributes apparently haven’t extended, even on a hot summer evening, to some of them ever sipping an icy cold mug of suds, Colucci said.

“Once they’re of a legal drinking age, they might never even have ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Feed barley prices now higher than those of malting barley
With feed barley in tight supply, the tables have flipped with feed prices now sitting higher than those for malting barley in Western Canada, the Manitoba Co-Operator reported on March 15.

Feed barley prices “make some of these other prices look a bit ridiculous. There’s no demand from the domestic maltsters because they’ve all been plugged up ever since harvest,” said Rod Green with Central Ag Marketing at Airdrie, Alta.

Old-crop feed barley is trading at over C$5 per bushel while malt is around C$4.25 per bushel. Feed barley has been feeling pressure due to higher export volumes and rising corn prices, caused by drought in Argentina.

As of March 4, Canada has exported 2,016,400 tonnes of barley compared to 1,550,300 last year, according to data from the Canadian Grain Commission.

Last year’s malt barley crop featured great quality across Western Canada, except for south of the Trans-Canada Highway where drought hit the region. Domestic demand was quickly filled and a drought in Australia led to increased demand from China.

According to Green, Chinese buyers prefer the Metcalfe barley variety with a bit higher protein level, leaving a lot of lower-quality Metcalfe and Copeland barley sitting in bins on the Prairies.

“There’s a lot of farmers ...More info on site

Barley news Australia: Barley export hits new season high in January
Australian exports of barley and canola hit new-season highs in January to reflect steady demand from Saudi Arabia and China on barley and European crushers on canola, the Grain Central reported on March 15.

Latest export data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows feed barley shipments in January at 453,725 tonnes, up 61 per cent from the December total, while malting exports at 178,372 tonnes were up 2pc from December.

Belgium and Germany were the volume buyers of Australian canola in January, with Australia shipping a total of 191,281t to all destinations, with cargoes to Belgium and Germany jointly accounting for 176,699t.

January shipments were up marginally from the December total of 190,953 tonnes, and both figures are close to the maximum that can be shipped from southern Australian ports while wheat and barley shipments, which use the same facilities, are running at full pace.

Barley news Ireland: Malting barley could ‘outperform dairy’
Whiskey exports, Irish feed rations and the benefits that the tillage sector brings for the environment are just some of the things that the Irish Grain Growers’ Group (IGGG) has been talking and lobbying about recently.

Bobby Miller, the chairperson of the IGGG, caught up with AgriLand recently. He spoke about what the IGGG has been up to lately and why he thinks that the group was needed, as farming has changed and become more specialised.

“I enjoy the job, for the most part. It’s a challenge. There’s a real necessity for a tillage group and a representative body for tillage in Ireland at the minute.

The IGGG has staged a number of demonstrations in relation to malting barley prices.

“I am still deciding if I will sow malting barley this year at all. I’ve definitely decided to cut back on the acreage.

“Malting barley growers are facing into yet another year of confusion when it comes to the details of growing the crop. Currently we don’t know if there is a deal in place or not. There are conflicting messages coming from IFA officials. A deal was signed late last year for 2018, but now negotiations are on-going.
