Brewery news Zimbabwe: AB InBev’s Delta Beverages abandons plan to only accept hard currency payments
Zimbabwe's largest brewing company Delta Beverages, part-owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, said it has abandoned a plan to only accept hard currency payments to cope with a crippling shortage of US dollars, after the government intervened, ESM reported on January 5.

Delta Beverages announced on January 2 that it would only take payments in US currency and would no longer accept electronic dollars known as 'Zollars', or a quasi-currency known as 'bond notes', amid a severe shortage of hard currency in Zimbabwe.

However, the country's commerce minister said on January 3 that the government opposed the plan and Delta, 40% owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, scrapped the plan following a meeting with senior politicians and reserve bank officials.

"Delta withdraws the notice to sell its products exclusively in hard currency, in the spirit of the multi-currency framework," Delta and Zimbabwe's reserve bank said in a joint statement late on January 3.

The reserve bank said it would endeavour to provide the foreign currency required to ensure that Delta continues to trade "on the current basis".

In a separate statement on January 4, Delta said shortages of its products, particularly soft drinks, would persist while the arrangement gets underway.

Brewery news Kazakhstan: Carlsberg Kazakhstan production capacity increased by 20%
As a result of the modernization carried out in 2018, the production capacity in Carlsberg Kazakhstan's plant increased by 20 percent and new jobs were created, the Trend reported on January 8 citing the company CEO Victor Semak.

"Also, we launched a new keg filling line in 2018. The quality of water that we use to brew our beer plays a significant role in ensuring the high quality of our products - we extract the water from artesian springs with a depth of up to 300 meters," he noted.

Semak also added that over the past years Carlsberg Kazakhstan has been investing in and successfully implementing TPM lean production projects, consistently reducing the carbon footprint and water losses.

"Thus, since 2012, the company has managed to reduce its specific consumption of water by 51 percent, of thermal energy by 55.8 percent, and of electricity by 42.9 percent," the company CEO said.

It should be noted that in the first half of 2018, the share of Carlsberg Kazakhstan on the country's beer market increased by 3 percent year-on-year and amounted to 41.2 percent. The company has firmly established itself on the first place in the draft beer production and on the third place in the ...More info on site

Brewery news Zimbabwe: Delta Corporation hikes beer prices by 25%
Zimbabwe’s largest brewer Delta Corporation hiked beer prices by 25 percent on January 7 citing high local costs, announcing the move days after it was forced to abandon another plan to accept only hard currency payments for its products, Reuters reported.

Like many companies in Zimbabwe, Delta, which is 40 percent-owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, has been hit by an acute shortage of U.S. dollars, affecting its capacity to import inputs like concentrates and remit dividends to foreign shareholders.

Delta said it was still to make a decision on prices of soft drinks and other products.

“The adjustment to the wholesale price is meant to cushion against the significant increases in local costs, confirmed by the official inflation statistics,” Delta said in a statement.

Annual inflation soared to a 10-year high of 31.01 percent in November after prices of basic goods spiked.

Zimbabwe has experienced a shortage of soft drinks and beer since November with shops limiting quantities, while some businesses tripled prices to take advantage of the shortages.

Delta said last week it had abandoned a plan to accept only hard currency payments to cope with a crippling shortage of U.S. dollars, after the government intervened.

Brewery news UK: Scottish breweries could face glass shortage this year
The Brewers Association of Scotland has warned that breweries may face a glass shortage when two furnaces close for renovation works, in a position reminiscent the carbon dioxide shortage caused by production facilities closing to be refurbished earlier this year, the Herald Scotland reported on January 8.

Scott Williams, who is Williams Bros' managing director and also TBAS chair, said: "Scottish brewers have continued to thrive as a community.

"We always outperform at beer tastings and competitions and we seem to be managing to keep going with that which is great.

"In terms of what’s happening in the year ahead there are some challenges because there is not enough glass being made in the UK."

Scottish capital-based Innis and Gunn has reported a "transformational" year as it shifted a focus onto lager then announced plans for a new brewery in 2019 and Alloa-based Williams Bros will switch on new machinery that will up output by about 50 per cent.

It comes after Scottish Food and Drink said brewers north of the border must move to protect their market position.

Dougal Sharp, founder of Innis and Gunn, hailed its £20 million brewery plans but also saluted the coming of age of craft lager.

He said: "I think you ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Heineken to launch 7.5% ABV Tecate beer in the US
Heineken will launch a 7.5% ABV Tecate beer in a single-serve 24oz can to capitalise on the sales growth of high-strength beers in US convenience stores, FoodBev.com reported on January 9.

Tecate Titanium is said to have a distinct flavour and aroma that is the result of “an obsessive and tireless brewing process that results in higher alcohol content and refreshing drinkability”.

Heineken said the brew enters a market segment where total 6.5%+ ABV products are growing 10.1% and singles cans are growing 11.6%.

Belen Pamukoff, Tecate brand director, said: “Titanium provides an opportunity to further expand the fast-growing Mexican category with a unique high-ABV option.

“Our core target, Hispanic c-store shoppers, are currently underserved by existing high-ABV options as they are 13% less likely to have purchased than the average shopper and have spent 30% less on the segment. We are offering a superior liquid at a competitive price point, in a segment our shopper target is familiar with.

“We see a gap in the market where most of the high-ABV options are non-beers, inferior beers, or hoppy craft beers. Titanium is bold, but it’s also highly refreshing.”

Heineken said the beverage aims to capitalise on the continuing growth of Mexican imports in the US.

Barley news Canada: Barley export market continues to be very vibrant
The Canadian barley export market continues to be very vibrant, with exports from August 1 – December 31 at 954,000 tonnes. This compares with 772,000 tonnes last year at this time and the five-year average of 519,000 tonnes, the CMBTC reported on January 9. China continues to be the most dominant buyer, importing over 500,000 tonnes since August 1 of feed and malting barley, the majority being malting. Canada’s second largest customer was Japan (136,000 tonnes) and then Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) (105,000 tonnes of feed barley). There will be more sales executed through January forward and China remains a buyer of malt barley for positions April through the summer months, providing Western Canada has sufficient barley to market, the CMBTC analysts said. Canadian malting barley sales now are primarily focused on the domestic market, which purchases roughly 900,000 tonnes per year, and the export market that is dominated by China. The United States (U.S.) market, which in the 2000s bought over 250,000 tonnes per year, has significantly cut its imports of Canadian barley in recent years. This past year, with the Buy America campaign, they were contracting virtually no malt barley from Canada. ...More info on site
