0 China: Yanjing Brewery foresees 30% growth in 2007

Yanjing Brewery Co Ltd, Tsingtao Brewery's main domestic rival, expects to post net profit growth in excess of 30 percent in 2007 as it rides robust consumption ahead of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Reuters reported September 18.

President Li Fucheng told reporters on Tuesday the firm, which competes in China with Tsingtao and local champions SABMiller Plc and China Resources Enterprises, should sell 4 million tonnes of beer in 2007 versus 3.53 million tonnes last year.

Volume sales should then rise gradually to 4.5 million tonnes and 5.0 million tonnes in 2008 and 2009, respectively, Li said.

"To reach this target, we plan to add 13 production lines to expand our capacity," he added.

"Driven by the Olympics, sales volume and prices of mid-to- high-end products have shot up."

Yanjing's net profit rose 11 percent to 306.9 million yuan ($40.8 million) in 2006. It posted a net profit of 193 million yuan in the January to June period of 2007, up 25 percent.

The firm dominates its home market and the northern region of Inner Mongolia, but also maintains a presence in southern Guangdong, Guangxi and central Hubei.

Yanjing remains the only major Chinese player yet to team up with a ...

0 UK: Barley grower facing the question: “When to sell”

There are still odd pockets of grain to be combined in Scotland, but the vast bulk of the harvest is over, Business Scotsman reported September 18.

The question now facing those farmers who have not sold their entire crop on forward contracts is the tricky one of when to hit the market. Spot malting barley of the highest quality is touching £200 per tonne, which is a record level and way above the £80 per tonne similar barley was making last September.

The malting trade appears desperate to buy barley and the general advice is certainly not to sell too quickly, though anything in the £180-£200 per tonne range has to be considered attractive. These unprecedented values for barley will eventually have to be reflected by distillers and brewers in what they charge for their drinks.

Meanwhile, next week the European Commission is expected to approve the abolition of compulsory set-aside. It is estimated that 3.8 million hectares is currently in set-aside throughout the EU, with 900,000 hectares, mostly in France and Germany, used for non-food crops. Virtually all of the set-aside is likely to be used to grow arable crops. However, much of the land in set-aside is of moderate ...

0 USA: Barley markets continue to skyrocket

In trying to describe the latest activity in the barley markets, Randy Brag from the Valley Grain Services in Casselton, N.D., said he is almost speechless, according to Farm & Ranch Guide, September 16.

“We are well into record high prices for both feed and malting barley and, as Brag puts it, “No one can really predict what's going to happen next. This is no man's land.”

“Prices could go up a dollar so fast or we could drop a dollar just as fast. This is as speculative as I have ever seen barley,” he continued. “Barley normally moves a nickel every once in a while, but nothing like this. To a lot of us right now this market makes no sense.”

The export market for good feed barley seems to be driving the markets at this time, Brag noted. He pointed out that a lot of factors are coming together at the same time to give support to the market.

Those market factors include a smaller crop than what was first expected in many areas of the U.S. and Canada, harvesting problems in some prime barley growing areas, harvesting difficulties in Canada, strong export demand and a need to fill vessels that are ...

Beginnings of microbiology and biochemistry: the contribution of yeast research

DESCRIPTION: James A. Barnett School of Biological Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich NR4 7TJ, UK

With improvements in microscopes early in the nineteenth century, yeasts were seen to be living organisms, although some famous scientists ridiculed the idea and their influence held back the development of microbiology. In the 1850s and 1860s, yeasts were established as microbes and responsible for alcoholic fermentation, and this led to the study of the ro? le of bacteria in lactic and other fermentations, as well as bacterial pathogenicity. At this time, there were difficulties in distinguishing between the activities of microbes and of extracellular enzymes. Between 1884 and 1894, Emil Fischer’s study of sugar utilization by yeasts generated an understanding of enzymic specificity and the nature of enzyme–substrate complexes.
