Brewery news Vietnam: Ba Ria-Vung Tau province allows Heineken Vietnam to increase investment capital
The southern coastal province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau has recently allowed Heineken Vietnam Brewery - Vung Tau JSC to increase its investment capital from 312.5 million USD to 381.3 million USD, VNA reported on February 6.

With the additional capital, the company expects to raise the annual capacity of its factory in Vung Tau from 610 million litres to 1.1 billion litres in 2020.

In early 2020, the province also granted approval decisions and investment licences to several investment projects, including those of Japan-based Seiko PMC Corporation (28 million USD), SeAH M&H Vietnam (35.3 million USD) and Arakawa Chemical Industries (45.6 million USD).

Last year, Ba Ria-Vung Tau attracted 108 new projects, including 49 foreign-invested ones valued at about 623 million USD, and 59 domestically-financed ones capitalised at 13.13 trillion VND (566 million USD).

During the year, it also allowed 40 existing projects to increase investment capital by 524 million USD.

Brewery news World: AB InBev’s CFO Felipe Dutra to be replaced by Ambev CFO Tennenbaum
Belgium-based beer maker Anheuser-Busch InBev said on February 5 that Chief Financial Officer Felipe Dutra would step down and be replaced by Fernando Tennenbaum, the CFO of its Brazilian unit, Ambev SA, Reuters reported.

Tennenbaum will also join the executive committee of the company that makes Budweiser, Corona and Stella Artois. Dutra, who was CFO for almost 15 years, will remain with the company during a transition period, the company said.

Ambev, Latin America’s largest brewer, said in a statement that its new CFO would be Lucas Lira, who is currently Global VP Finance, M&A of Anheuser-Busch InBev.

Brazil was AB InBev’s second-largest market behind the United States as of late last year and the company saw its volume drop by 3% in that market in the third quarter.

The company has been selling assets and listed its Asian business in Hong Kong in September.

It also named David Almeida as chief strategy and technology officer and Nelson Jamel as chief people officer.

Brewery news India: Tribunal allows AB InBev to resume beer sales in New Delhi for now
A tribunal in New Delhi has put on hold a sales ban imposed last year on Anheuser-Busch InBev, an order seen by Reuters showed, allowing the world’s largest brewer to resume sales of its beer products in the city for now.

Authorities in New Delhi barred AB InBev in July from selling its beer products for three years over allegations related to the evasion of state taxes, which the company had denied. The ban was later reduced to 18 months.

The company’s appeal against the ban was rejected in December by a judge of the Delhi High Court, who directed AB InBev to approach the city tribunal for further relief.

The tribunal issued a one-page order on Feb. 4 saying the ban was being “stayed” as it continues to hear the company’s appeal. The order, a copy of which was seen by Reuters on February 6, did not elaborate on the reasons.

AB InBev continues to argue against the ban saying it must be quashed as the company was not given adequate notice beforehand, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The next tribunal appeal hearing is on Feb. 25, the order said.

An official from the Delhi government said it would continue to defend ...More info on site

Barley news Australia: Barley exports in December increase to 239,766 tonnes
Australia exported 239,766 tonnes of barley in December, up from 76,482 tonnes in November, according to the latest export figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Malting barley exports in December totalled 99,018 tonnes, up from 4,790 tonnes in November, and feed barley shipments also jumped, with bulk shipments to China and Thailand accounting for much of the rise to 140,748 tonnes from 71,692 tonnes over December.

China has been a buyer of Australian barley, both feed and malting, since its anti-dumping investigation into the historic pricing of Australian feed barley started in November 2018.

“In January, the Lachstock shipping stem suggests that Australia has shipped around 223,000 tonnes to Chiina, and looks like it will do a similar volume in February,” Flexi Grain pool manager Lachlan Hume said.

He said Australia’s supply of exportable barley to China has been restricted over the past two seasons due to increase local feed consumption which has driven up the price, making Australian feed barley uncompetitive globally.

Australia last year exported about 2.4 mln tonnes of barley to China, but Mr Hume said the figure is this year expected to drop to more like 1.3 mln tonnes.

“One could argue that the decrease in demand is due to ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Rapid rise of craft brewing a godsend for barley industry
Malting barley doesn’t sell itself to one marketplace.

It’s being sold to multiple marketplaces with very different interest in protein, enzyme, starch and quality levels, the Western Producer reported on February 6.

“We have very different marketplaces,” said Peter Watts, managing director of the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre.

“Each marketplace has different quality requirements.”

That means that barley isn’t just barley in the elevators’ and buyers’ eyes. Each one has different needs and different customers that might need sharply different product.

Chinese buyers mostly want high protein and high enzyme malting barley in order to pair with cheaper grains like corn and rice. A variety like Metcalfe works well for that, with protein levels of 11.5 to 13.5 fitting their needs best.

Mainstream brewers and maltsters like moderate protein and moderate enzyme content, with protein of 11 to 13 percent being typical.

Craft brewers like low protein, low enzyme barley, with 9.5 to 11.5 percent protein most common. A variety like Copeland works well for those users.

Chinese buyers are willing to take lower qualities of barley compared to North American buyers. Craft brewers can be very particular about the barley they buy because they have little ability to play with formulas in brewing.

The rapid rise of ...More info on site

Barley news Australia: New generation barley variety set to conquer Western Australia grainbelt
A new generation barley variety has been unveiled and is set to take the Western Australian grainbelt by storm, the Mirage News reported on February 5.

Building on the success of Spartacus CL, Maximus CL boasts improved yields, superior disease resistance and highly desirable physical grain qualities.

Tolerant to imidazolinone herbicides, the variety partners well with canola and creates more flexible and profitable crop rotations with strong malting rates in comparison to other competitors.

This early-to-mid-flowering variety also has improved resistance to spot form net blotch, net form net blotch and scale, along with outstanding grain size and hectolitre weight to aid malt achievement.

The new entrant in the barley arena was bred by InterGrain, in which the State Government is a major shareholder with the Grains Research and Development Corporation.

Maximus CL is currently being tested for malt accreditation and will be bulked up for a commercial release in 2021.

As stated by Agriculture and Food Minister Alannah MacTiernan:

“InterGrain excels at breeding high-yielding cereal varieties that meet market demands and improve the profitability of WA’s legion of grain growers.

“Hailed as ‘the next generation potential malting IMI gladiator’, Maximus CL embodies InterGrain’s reputation for listening to the demands of the supply chain and creating a variety ...More info on site
