Brewery news Vietnam: Sabeco shareholders decide to raise dividend payment despite drop in net profit last year
Shareholders in Saigon Beer-Alcohol-Beverage Corporation (Sabeco) have approved a plan to raise its dividend payment for 2018 from 35 to 50 percent, VNS/VNA reported on April 15.

The decision, announced at the annual shareholders’ meeting on April 12, caught investor attention due to the fact net profit declined 11 percent in 2018, its first drop since 2013.

Sabeco reported net revenue of 35.95 trillion VND (1.54 billion USD) in 2018, up 5 percent over 2018 and surpassing the yearly target by more than 2 percent. However, its profit after tax dropped 11 percent on-year to 4.4 trillion VND (roughly 189 million USD).

Sabeco witnessed big changes to its management board last year, with a representative of Vietnam Beverage, an indirect subsidiary of Thai Beverage (ThaiBev) controlled by tycoon Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi, joining its executive board in the second quarter.

The company paid total 35-percent cash dividend last year worth more than 2.2 trillion VND, of which ThaiBev received 1.2 trillion VND. With the higher dividend rate, expected to pay this year, Sabeco will pay an additional 960 billion VND and ThaiBev will collect an extra 515 billion VND.

Sabeco’s undistributed profit was estimated at 6.7 trillion VND after the dividend payment, but the company still faced ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Heineken hoping for its zero alcohol beer to win Americans over
Americans are drinking less beer. Heineken has a plan to fix that, CNN reported on April 15.

Over the past four years, American beer consumption slid 5%, according to research firm Mintel. A quarter of US beer drinkers said in August that they consume less beer now than they did a year ago, Mintel added.

American drinkers are more focused on health and wellness, but they also want quality beer, wine and liquor that tastes good. Some are swapping out beer for pricey liquor: Spirits stole market share from beer and wine for the ninth straight year in 2018, with the more expensive liquors leading the way. Those who are still drinking beer are reaching for premium options.

Heineken thinks its zero alcohol product, Heineken 0.0, will appeal to people who value health and flavor. The company hopes the new brew, which took about five years to develop, will win people over.

"Making a brilliant non-alcoholic beer is really hard," Jonnie Cahill, Heineken USA's chief marketing officer, told CNN Business. When you remove alcohol from beer, you tend to remove flavor and aroma with it. But with 0.0 "we've cracked the technology."

The company wants to stop people from ditching beer and keep Heineken top ...More info on site

Brewery news China & South Korea: China Resources Beer debuts new brand on South Korea’s market
The China Resources Beer Corp. (CRB), China's top brewer, debuted a new beer brand in South Korea to cater to rising demand for diversified flavors and high quality, its local distributor said on April 17.

The Beijing-based brewer showcased a new lager called Super X with a 3.8 percent alcohol content in South Korea to target young people, following its launch in China in March 2018.

Hyunwon Korea, its local distribution channel, will start selling the beer at local discount chains and convenience stores next month, with plans to target local restaurants later this year.

China's No. 1 brewer made a foray into the Korean market as Chinese alcohol has enjoyed growing popularity in Chinese restaurants here. Tsingtao is the most famous Chinese beer brand in South Korea, as it is considered a good pairing for lamb skewers.

"Although some say the Korean imported beer market is already saturated, we will make efforts to satisfy local consumers with deep flavors," Kim Jung-young, CEO of Hyunwon Korea, said in a press briefing.

CRB's flagship Snow Beer is the world's top brand with a 6.1 percent market share by volume, but it is mostly sold in mainland China with a 26 percent share in the nation as ...More info on site

Brewery news Cyprus: Beer production down 15.1% in March
Beer production in Cyprus fell by 15.1% in March, despite a significant increase in exports, according to data released by the Cyprus Statistical Service.

Total beer deliveries from breweries reached 1,552,134 litres this March compared to 3,015,485 litres in March last year, recording a drop of 15.1% or 456,351 litres.

Deliveries for local consumption reached 2,327,761 litres, down from 2,930,447 litres last year, recording a drop of 10.56% (602,686 litres)

On the contrary, beer exports came to 231,373 litres compared to just 85,038 litres in March last year, recording an impressive rise of 172%.

In March there was an increase of 34.5% in beer deliveries compared to February. Deliveries for local consumption recorded an increase of 30.3%. Imports recorded an increase of 98.6%.

Brewery news Ireland: Diageo to move to 100% recyclable packaging
The company behind drinks brands Guinness and Rockshore has announced plans to move to 100% recyclable packaging, ditching the plastic rings and shrinkwraps from its products, thejournal.ie reported on April 15.

Diageo – which supplies Guinness, Harp, Rockshore and Smithwicks – said it would replace plastic rings around cans of beer with biodegradable cardboard.

The company also said it will be investing €9.25 million in its bottling and packaging plant in Belfast and will see the new biodegradable packaging hit shelves in Ireland by August this year.

Plastic pollution has become a growing concern globally in recent years as large amounts of plastic is being found ingested by marine creatures and washing up on shores.

In January, Agriculture Minister Michael Creed called on fishing trawler operators to help remove some of the plastic from shores around Ireland.

“A coordinated action is required,” he said at the time, “to address the serious issue of pollution of the oceans with plastics.”

The move by the beer supplier will reduce plastic on a scale equivalent to removing 40 million 50cl plastic bottles, which if laid out in a row, could stretch from London to Beijing, it said.

It currently exports beer to more than 100 countries including ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Barley production estimated 6% higher than last season
For 2018-19, Canada’s barley production is estimated to have increased by 6% from 2017-18 to 8.4 million tonnes on higher area harvested, despite a lower yield, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada said in its April report.

The quality of the barley crop depended on when it was harvested. The early harvested crop was very good. There was significant quality degradation in unharvested crops in the northern grain belt. Overall, the quality of barley selected for malting was good. Total supply is lower than last year due to low carry-in stocks.

Canada is expected to export 2.7 mln tonnes of barley for 2018-19, which is 11% of the world trade. The exports include 2.0 mln tonnes for grain exports and 0.7 mln tonnes for products. The major export destinations are China, the US, Japan. According to Statistics Canada (STC), barley grain exports for the first six months in 2018-19 were 1.2 mln tonnes versus 1.0 mln for the same period last year but the export pace is expected to slow-down for the remainder of the crop year. Exports of malting barley for the six months reached 258 thousand tonnes, compared with 294 thousand tonnes for the same period last year.

Barley news EU: Dry conditions in Spain, southeast Europe hurt yields prospects
Dry conditions in Spain and southeast Europe have hurt yield prospects there for this year's grain harvest, the European Union's crop monitoring service said on April 15.

After flagging dryness in southern Europe as a risk last month, the MARS said a persistent lack of moisture had led it to lower its yield projections for crops in Spain, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Greece.

The stress to crops in these parts of southern Europe contrasted with generally decent crop conditions in the EU due to mild weather that has boosted plant growth, MARS said in its April report.

At EU level, the crop monitor slightly lowered its forecast of the average soft wheat yield in 2019 to 6.01 tonnes per hectare (t/ha) from an initial estimate of 6.04 t/ha last month.

That would be up 6.8 percent from a drought-hit 2018 level and 1.2 percent above the average of the past five years.

The EU's 2019 barley yield was projected at 4.95 t/ha, up 7.4 percent from last year.

That included an expected winter barley yield of 6.00 t/ha, revised down slightly from 6.02 t/ha last month, and a first spring barley yield forecast at 4.16 t/ha.

MARS kept unchanged its forecast of the 2019 EU rapeseed ...More info on site
