Brewery news Australia: Proportion of Australians drinking alcohol down from 2014
In an average four week period, 67.5% of the Australian population aged 18 and over consume at least one type of alcoholic drink. This represents a gradual decline over the last five years from 70.1% recorded in 2014. All major categories of alcoholic drinks showed declines in incidence over this period, apart from cider which increased, Roy Morgan Research reported on May 24.

These are some of the latest findings from Roy Morgan’s ‘Alcohol Consumption Currency Report March 2019’ which is based on in-depth interviews conducted face-to-face with over 50,000 consumers per annum in their homes, including detailed questioning of over 15,000 regarding their alcoholic drinking habits.

Wine is consumed by 42.8% of the Australian population aged 18+ over an average four week period, ahead of beer with 38.2% and spirits on 26.3%. Cider is now consumed by 11.4% which has increased from 11.1% five years ago, making it the only type of alcohol to increase. The incidence of cider drinkers is now ahead of RTD (10.8%), Liqueurs (6.5%) and Fortified Wine (4.9%).

Over the last five years the biggest decline was for wine (down 2.3% points), followed by liqueurs (down 1.2% points), RTD (down 0.9% points). Beer showed a decline of 0.6% ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: CMBTC posts barley crop progress update
The warm weather has substantially benefitted the seeding progress in the Prairies this past week, CMBTC reported on May 22.

For the most part, farmers were able to seed without any rain or other weather related interruptions. There was an overnight freeze in large parts of the northern Saskatchewan, as well as east-central and southern Alberta this past weekend. Although the impact was somewhat limited, it is still too early to assess the damage but most farmers seem optimistic there was little damage done to their crops. Earlier this week, night-time lows in certain areas of central Alberta registered 0°C, not conducive for plant growth. The area that covers east of Edmonton to Lloydminster and southeast to North Battleford and Regina is 90% seeded as of this week. This area will need rain in the next two weeks as it was moisture deprived last year and it is still dry. ALBERTA South (Strathmore, Lethbridge, Foremost): This is the most advanced region of the province, having received some beneficial rains this week which added to the crop potential. This past weekend this region received 30 mm (1 inch +) of rain and there is more in the forecast for later ...More info on site

Barley news France: Barley, wheat crop rating unchanged from last week
Farm office FranceAgriMer estimated in a weekly report on May 24 that 79pc of French soft wheat crops were in good or excellent condition by May 20, unchanged from a week earlier.

That was also the same score as estimated for soft wheat crops at the same stage last year.

FranceAgriMer rated 75pc of French winter barley as good/excellent, also unchanged from the previous week.

The equivalent spring barley rating fell to 88pc from 89pc last week, while the maize rating declined to 83pc from 85pc.

Spring sowing of maize was almost over, with an estimated 97pc of the expected area sown by May 20.

Barley news South Africa: Barley production still below national demand
The craft beer industry in South Africa has doubled in size over the past five years and there are now more than 220 brands on retail shelves, the Farmer’s Weekly reported on May 24.

Although barley production has been increasing at an average rate of 7%/year, it is still below national demand, necessitating imports of between 60,000 tonnes and 120,000 tonnes a year, depending on domestic supply.

Richard Krige, chairperson of the National Barley Industry Committee, said there was much potential to expand the barley industry in South Africa based on demand from South African Breweries (SAB), Heineken, and craft beer companies.

“Developments in cultivars producing the highly fermentable malt (HFM) made from barley required by the beer industry are also promising.”

He said that in the past, HFM production had been problematic for South African producers, as the correct cultivars were unavailable.

“However, through the South African Barley Breeding Institute, better varieties have been bred to fulfil the demand for HFM. We’ve also increased yield per hectare from 2.7 tonnes to 3.4 tonnes.”

Krige noted that SAB had committed to procure 475,000 tonnes of barley locally, of which 90,000 tonnes would be from the northern production regions and the rest from the Western Cape.

“However, the ...More info on site

Whisky news UK & India: UK court hears Diageo USD175 mln claim against Mallya
The UK High Court on May 24 heard arguments in a case brought by British beverages giant Diageo against Vijay Mallya to recover more than USD175 million it claims is owed to them by the embattled liquor tycoon, the Business Standard reported.

Justice Robin Knowles heard Diageo’s claim that Mallya, his son Sidhartha and two companies associated with the family are liable for repayment of the funds dating back to the company’s acquisition of a controlling stake in Mallya’s United Spirits Limited (USL) around three years ago.

Of the total amount claimed by the London-headquartered drinks firm, USD 40 million is claimed directly from Mallya as the amount paid to him as part of a disengagement agreement and the remaining amount from Sidhartha Mallya and Watson Limited, a company held in a Mallya family trust called the Continental Administration Services Limited (CASL).

“We are suing Dr Mallya for repayment and damages amounting to approximately USD175 million. This is money Dr Mallya and some of his affiliate companies owe Diageo and we have always been clear that we are entitled to exercise our right to recover the sum in full,” said Dominic Redfearn, spokesperson for Diageo, one of the world’s largest distillers behind brands ...More info on site
