Brewery news UK: Acquisitions of craft breweries by multinationals could become a wider industry trend - research
New research into the UK’s brewing industry suggests that the spate of recent acquisitions of small craft breweries by multinationals could become a wider industry trend, The Morning Advertiser reported on August 29. Over the past five years, the number of small UK breweries has risen by 64%, creating an overcrowded marketplace. This rise has been in part due to tax breaks such as Small Breweries' Relief (introduced in 2002), but also due to the popularity of craft beer produced by independent breweries.

The research, provided by financial intelligence provider Plimsoll Publishing, suggests that many of these breweries are trying to compete with rising costs, falling margins and a lack of investment, and hence further buyouts could be on the cards.

David Pattison, senior analyst at financial intelligence provider Plimsoll Publishing, said: “The arrival of such a large number of small companies means the brewing industry has become highly fragmented; 70% companies are run with less than £500,000 of investment."

Pattison continued: “Costs are rising faster than sales and for the first time in nine years, margins have fallen below 4%. This lack of investment means that some companies will struggle to grow, even ...More info on site

Brewery news South Africa: Heineken hits back at counterfeit products claims
Dutch beer giant Heineken has hit back at claims that counterfeit versions of its products are being sold in South Africa, IPPro The Internet reported on August 30.

In a statement, Heineken said that a recent viral video showing “highly illegal criminal behaviour” is an old video first shared in China in 2016 and a “deliberate act to damage the Heineken brand”.

The video shows factory workers packaging Heineken branded bottles in a warehouse filled with hundreds of stacks of fake Heineken boxes.

Heineken consumers took to Twitter to share the video and photos comparing two Heineken bottles with different labels.

But Heineken argued that due to high demand, it was forced to import extra 650ml products, which lead to a discrepancy between differing back labels on products.

Heineken says that it is not aware of any counterfeit products being sold in South Africa and reassures customers that its products sold “in compliance with global best practices”.

Whisky news China: Young Chinese consumers increase spending on whiskey
Demand from the increasingly urbanized and high-income population, evolving tastes and consumption upgrade is boosting spending on whiskey among young Chinese consumers, the China Economic Net reported on August 30.

Buoyed by the growth, several high-end foreign whiskey retailers are putting more efforts to promote online shopping and sales at restaurants and bars, they said.

Single malt whiskey, made from malted barley and distilled for more than three years from a single distillery, saw the fastest growth in the whiskey segment. The category, which is characterized by distinguished original flavors of different whiskey producing areas, usually comes with expensive price tags.

Total sales of single malt whiskey in China was valued at 45.1 million pounds ($57.9 million) by the end of June last year, up 36 percent year-on-year from 2016, according to data from London-based Diageo Plc.

Gao Shengtian, general manager of French wine and spirits company Pernod Ricard in China, earlier said the company is planning to offer more promotions through social media platforms to boost online sales.

Last year, Pernod Ricard accounted for 31.5 percent market share in China. It was followed by Diageo Plc, which took 15.9 percent, and Suntory Holdings Ltd, Brown-Forman Corp, and Edrington Group, respectively, according to market researcher ...More info on site
