0 Laos: Lao Brewery delays export plans

Lao Brewery Co's plans to flood Thailand with its popular Beer Lao next year have been put on hold until 2011, a senior executive said, DPA reported September 20. Lao Brewery, one of little Laos' biggest companies, has invested 25 million dollars in an expansion project in southern Laos aimed at exploiting the export market, specifically neighbouring Thailand, under the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement, which goes into effect in 2008 for the 10-country Association of South-East Asian Nations.

But the government of Laos and Thailand recently decided that beer was too sensitive a product to be tariff-free in their respective markets.

"Both governments decided to keep the tariffs on beer until 2011," said Sounthone Phommachak, senior deputy managing director of the Lao Brewery Co. "Each country is still trying to protect their own beer market."

Lao Brewery, a joint venture between the Lao government and Denmark's Carlberg, is to open a new plant in Pakse in southern Laos at the end of this year with an initial annual capacity for 50 million litres of beer.

The 25-million-dollar project was originally planned to tap the beer market of neighbouring Thailand, but now it is to focus on satisfying the growing local demand ...

0 South Africa: Unusual demand for beer is responsible for shortages

South African Breweries (SAB) says in the quarter to June, volume sales grew 4% and now unusual demand is partly responsible for intermittent shortages, Business Day reported September 21. SA is not known as a high beer per capita country, consuming 55l a person a year. The Czechs, however, down about 160l a year, and the Germans about 125l.

Locally, warmer weather and sporting events may well have contributed to the increase in demand. There has also been the suggestion that drinkers are moving from wine to beer.

Then there is also the absence of rival Amstel during SAB's first quarter, as cans re-entered SA only in July. Bottles, by far the bulk of sales, should be back by the end of the month.

So, did Amstel's absence from SAB's portfolio harm or aid it? The jury is still out, but one market commentator points out that the only premium beers on shelves that were not from SAB from March to June were Heineken and Windhoek.

So, either SAB benefited anyway and its next set of numbers will not show such huge volume growth, or Amstel drinkers all drank either Heineken or Windhoek and the net volume gain is actually higher.

Either way, more ...

0 USA: Tightening supplies push barley export sales to triple last year

According to USDA, coarse grain trade hit record levels with 2007/08 numbers increasing by more than 4 million metric tons this month to a record 115 million, Grain Journal published September 14.

“As a result of other countries, specifically the Ukraine, having a poor barley crop this year due to natural calamities, customers are relying on U.S. farmers to fulfill demand,” said President and CEO of the U.S. Grains Council Ken Hobbie.

“Tightening foreign supplies and increasing prices have boosted U.S. barley export sales to triple last year’s level.”

In the past month world barley prices have jumped $80 per ton, which is a 25 percent increase, to a record $350 per ton.

The Ukraine previously accounted for 16 percent of world exports, but due to the poor crop this year export restrictions were imposed to ensure that there are sufficient domestic supplies to soften internal prices.

In addition, Australia, which normally supplies one-third of world exports, is facing lower crop prospects and depleted old crop exportable supplies, according to USDA statistics.

Hobbie said Council programs taking place across the globe helped educate feed mills and other importers of the benefits of U.S. barley as a feed alternative.

For example, the ...

Scientific Digest
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.
