Brewery news Rwanda: Bralirwa’s pretax profit raises to 7.7 bln francs from 2.67 mln in 2016
Rwandan brewer Bralirwa said on April 23 its pretax profit rose to 7.709 billion francs ($9 million) in 2017, from 2.67 billion francs a year earlier, helped by lower financing costs that cushioned a slight revenue drop, Reuters reported.

Bralirwa is Rwanda’s oldest brewery and has rights to produce beer brands such as Amstel. It also produces branded soft drinks such as Coca-Cola.

It said its sales volumes fell by 12 percent to 1.5 billion francs in 2017, hurt by the impact of price rises of both soft drinks and beer and strong competition.

“We used to be in (a) monopoly situation in 10 years ago and now we are facing strong competition from local production coming from Skol but also from imports … from Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya,” Victor Madiela managing director, said.

Bralirwa said its earnings per share rose to 3.75 francs from 1.36 francs in 2016.

Brewery news Vietnam: Sabeco shareholders vote to add three ThaiBev representatives to management board
Shareholders of Vietnam’s largest brewer Sabeco voted to add three representatives of Thai Beverage PCL to its management board, Sabeco said in a statement.

ThaiBev, which has a more than 50 percent stake in Sabeco - formally known as Saigon Beer Alcohol Beverage Corp, complained to the Vietnamese government earlier this year that its proposed board members for Sabeco had not been accepted.

However, last month, a senior financial executive at Sabeco had said that ThaiBev’s proposed members would be able to join the board and that the process had been delayed due to “complicated procedures”.

At a voting on April 23, shareholders approved the addition of ThaiBev’s representatives to the Sabeco board, the Vietnamese brewer said in the statement on Monday, confirming what a Sabeco source had told Reuters and local media reports.

One of the three newly elected board members is Singaporean Koh Poh Tiong, board director and adviser of Fraser and Neave Limited. Fraser and Neave is owned by Thai magnate Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi, who also owns ThaiBev, maker of Chang beer.

The other two new board members are Malcolm Tan Tiang Hing, CEO of Shanghai-based beverage distributor DXCel International, and Sunyaluck Chaikajornwat, partner of Thai law firm Weerawong, Chinnavat & Partners Ltd, ...More info on site

Brewery news Namibia: AB InBev Namibia launches beer from locally-grown pearl millet
The Ministry of Industrialisation, Trade and SME Development officially launched Eagle Lager, Namibia's first authentic Mahangu brew in Okahandja on 20 April, AllAfrica.com reported.

Eagle lager is a first of its kind local brew that is produced from the freshest locally harvested pearl millet, or mahangu, and is expected to penetrate the local markets fast. Operating just outside Okahandja, AB InBev Namibia is the youngest African member of the international conglomerate AB InBev which bought out SABMillers and opened its doors in Namibia in 2014.

This beer brand stems from the company's commitment to brew the highest quality beer and improve the livelihoods of the Namibian farmers, retailers, entrepreneurs and communities at large. AB InBev Namibia's ideal of 'Bringing people together for a Better World' looks at the holistic welfare of the communities in which the company operates.

Under the 'Smart Agriculture,' initiative, local farmers are taught how to apply improved farming practices which increase their yield per square metre. AB InBev Namibia then offers a guaranteed market for these farmers who provide the brewer with locally grown mahangu thereby generating income and revenue for the local farmers and their communities.

"Our programmes and partnerships are helping farmers build on their skills, enabling them ...More info on site

Brewery news India: Sebi to pass final order on Vijay Mallya holding board positions in listed companies soon
India’s stock market regulator will soon pass a final order on whether former liquor baron Vijay Mallya can hold board positions in listed companies, which will also end the country’s largest beer maker United Breweries’ long wait for a full-time chairman, the Economic Times reported on April 25.

Mallya — who the Indian government has been trying to extradite from Britain over charges of fraud for the past few years — has been reluctant to nominate a successor or step down from the board of United Breweries (UBL), a joint venture between him and the world’s largest brewer Heineken International.

“The hearing has been concluded,” a person familiar with the development said. “Sebi is trying to come out with an order before the May deadline.” A lawyer familiar with the case said it’s highly unlikely Sebi would change its earlier stance of barring Mallya from staying on the board.

In that case, Mallya will be forced to quit United Breweries board for good and allow the company to finally have a full-time chairman.

UBL has been rotating its board members as acting chairman until now. Mallya did not respond to an email seeking comment. Some company officials hoped the next ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: AB InBev hoping for permanent exemptions to aluminium imported from allies
Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world's largest brewer with North American headquarters in St. Louis, is hopeful that the United States will grant permanent exemptions to aluminum imported from allies and wants Congress to look into price spikes that have already set in, STLtoday.com reported on April 25.

President Donald Trump last month imposed import tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum, but provided temporary exemptions until May 1 for the European Union, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Australia, and South Korea.

Carlos Brito, chief executive of Budweiser-maker AB InBev, which sells many of its beers in the United States in aluminum cans, said the company had been very disappointed by the introduction of tariffs, which he said had put U.S. manufacturers at a disadvantage.

"We are very hopeful on the other hand that the list of allies continues to get populated because then you could maybe get to the situation where 80 percent of the aluminum supply — Canada being the biggest supplier — could be exempted from the tariff," Brito said after a meeting of the company's shareholders on April 25.

The brewing chief also said he was concerned about a spike of what is known as the Midwest premium, a ...More info on site

Barley news Canada & USA: Canada not expected to continue importing large quantities of US feed barley
A limited market for feed barley in Canada raised prices and increased corn and barley imports from the US in 2017/18, but conditions are not expected to continue, says USDA. Dry weather has been one factor influencing the planting of feed grains for Canadian producers as acres are expected to shift to wheat, barley or non-lentil pulses in 2018/19.

Details of grain and feed production in Canada were released by an agricultural specialist with the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) last week.

“Prior to March, large crop-growing areas of the prairies received only 40-60% of average winter precipitation,” the specialist reported. “The impact of this shortfall could amplify the effects of below average precipitation carried in from the 2017 growing season, particularly in central Saskatchewan. Achieving average yields for all crops covered in this report would depend on moisture condition improvements.”

There has been additional snowfall in March, but it remains to be seen if that will help recharge the soil moisture conditions, she said. “If the snow melts too quickly, then water will run off the frozen ground, whereas a slow melt would add moisture back to the soil,” she added.

Overall, ...More info on site

Barley news China: China imports one of the highest tonnages of barley in March
China imported one of the highest tonnages of barley in years in March, while sorghum arrivals fell by 21 percent, customs data showed on April 23, in a sign that China’s growing trade spat with the United States is roiling grain flows, Reuters reports.

China imported 860,000 tonnes of barley in March, up 22 percent on a year ago and the third highest monthly level since at least the start of 2016.

Demand for barley, used in both animal feed and brewing, has risen since China said in early February it would investigate alleged dumping of another feed grain, sorghum, by the United States.

Sorghum imports for the month fell 21 percent year on year to 570,000 tonnes, the data showed, but were still up slightly from February’s 555,713 tonnes.

Both barley and sorghum are used as substitutes for corn in feeding livestock in China, the world’s biggest pork producer.

“People switched to barley in a concentrated way after the probe into sorghum was launched,” a China-based trader said.

“Sorghum imports were low also because prices of U.S. sorghum were not really competitive and the government here was trying to reduce huge stocks of corn,” the trader said.

A second trader said the rise in barley imports ...More info on site
