Brewery news Africa: Diageo to invest in sustainability of its African breweries
British drinks giant Diageo announced on August 5 it would inject nearly a quarter of a billion dollars into sustainability projects at 11 of its African breweries, its largest green investment in a decade.

The London-based spirits maker committed to spending 180 million pounds (USD 219 million/196 million euros) on renewable energy and water recycling systems at breweries in seven countries to reduce its carbon footprint.

The alcohol multinational said biomass boilers using sustainable fuels would be installed at three breweries in Kenya and neighbouring Uganda, replacing dirtier sources of energy production.

Wood chip, bamboo and rice husk would create steam power, cutting emissions and creating jobs with local farmers providing the raw materials. Solar panels would be rolled out at facilities in six countries, starting with Kenya and Ghana, producing up to one-fifth of each breweries' energy needs. Recovery, purification and reuse facilities at five breweries, meanwhile, including in Kenya, Uganda and Nigeria, would save two billion cubic litres of water a year, Diageo said.

Fifty-million pounds would be provided upfront to kick-off the projects spanning 11 breweries in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa, Seychelles, Nigeria and Ghana.

"We believe this is one of the biggest single investments in ...More info on site

Brewery news Zimbabwe & Botswana & Malawi: Delta Corporation eyes Malawi, Botswana markets entry before year-end
Zimbabwe’s listed beverages maker Delta Corporation says it is moving ahead with plans to consolidate the ownership of its Chibuku brand in the region with an arrangement to enter Malawi and Botswana markets before year-end, the Bulawayo24 News reported on August 4.

Delta chief executive Pearson Gowero told Standardbusiness that the company wanted to diversify earnings, and earn foreign currency as the interbank market is failing to cater for its US$5 million monthly requirements.

"What we are trying to do is to diversify our earnings going into bigger markets by consolidating the ownership of the Chibuku brand in southern Africa," he said.

"We already own it here in Zimbabwe, we own it in Zambia and South Africa, and that leaves a few places, which is Malawi and Botswana that we are seriously pursuing at the moment because we think there is potential in those markets."

He said the major reason behind the regional thrust was to earn foreign currency.

"The focus will also be to earn forex. Admittedly, the supply of foreign currency on the interbank market is not enough," Gowero said.

"We require about US$5 million per month and currently we are getting close to half of that amount as we go and bid up ...More info on site

Brewery news South Africa: More South Africans turning to no- and low-alcohol beer
South African Breweries (SAB) said on August 5 that more South African beer drinkers are slowly taking up the growing global trend of consuming the no- and low-alcohol beer (Nablab) categories, All4Women.co.za reported.

A survey by the global market research company Nielsen found that 47 per cent of Americans were no longer as loyal to their historic adult drink of choice and that drinkers wanted to reduce their alcohol consumption to lead healthier lifestyle.

Zoleka Lisa, vice president for corporate affairs at SAB, said as an increasing number of people around the world were passing up on their traditional alcoholic beverage, South Africa was no different.

“An alcohol-free beer offers people the freedom of choice to still enjoy the taste and the sociability of a beer, and the sense of belonging of having a drink with one’s friends, but without the alcohol,” Lisa said.

“It also allows the drinker to have a safer consumption experience by practicing ‘pacing’ by combining the consumption of alcohol beers with alcohol-free beers, as a means of moderation.”

Lisa said that pacing is one important component of moderate drinking.

“The practice of pacing allows for safer and smart drinking options because a lower intake of alcohol over a longer period gives ...More info on site

Brewery news South Korea & Japan: Import of Japanese beer to Korea nearly halves in July
Imports of Japanese beer to Korea nearly halved in July against the previous month as consumers voluntarily shunned Japanese brands in protest to the Tokyo export curbs targeting to hurt Korea’s mainstay electronics component industry, the Pulse News reported on August 6.

Beer imports from Japan in July totaled $4.34 million, off 45 percent from the previous month, according to the Korea Customs Service. Imports of Japanese beers came at $5.16 million in April, $5.95 million, and $7.90 million in June – on seasonal demand. But the beer imports from the neighbor country plummeted 45 percent from the previous month and 35 percent from a year earlier in July after Tokyo tightened control on three chemicals used in chip and display production bound for Korea.

The last time beer imports from Japan fell so sharply was in the aftermath of the 2011 nuclear meltdown in earthquake-hit Japan.

Japanese brands are being yanked out of the shelves as both consumers and merchants join the boycott against Japanese products following coercive trade embargo from Tokyo in apparent complaint over wartime and colonial period claims.

Brewery news Ghana: Guinness Ghana introduces new Guinness Smooth Stout
Guinness Ghana has made an addition to its portfolio with the introduction of the new Guinness Smooth Stout, Myjoyonline.com reported on August 8.

The latest product, according to the company, is 70 per cent Ghanaian materials-brewed with a classic blend of a bittersweet duet of hops and roasted barley.

Addressing the media at the launch, Marketing Manager for Stouts, Adult Premium Non-Alcoholic Drinks (APNADs) and RTD at Guinness Ghana Breweries PLC., Samuel Dery, said the new product was launched based on customer preference.

“We did a lot of research and together with the local team and the team in Dublin, we came out with a Guinness expression that has a lager refreshing; it’s 5 per cent and it’s a Guinness that you would want to enjoy with your friends when you go out and want to have a hangout conversation,” he said.

According to him, the new product seeks to compensate Guinness enthusiasts whose taste buds yearn for a perfect balance of bitter and sweet flavour.

Guinness Master Brewer, Peter Simpson, is optimistic the entry of the new product would go a long way to increase the company’s market share.

“It’s going to be absolutely huge in Ghana and I can see this going a million ...More info on site

Whisky news USA: Pernod Ricard acquiring Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. in Texas
Pernod Ricard, the owner of Absolut Vodka and Jameson Irish Whiskey, is acquiring Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co., which has produced the TX premium whiskey and bourbon brand since 2012. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, Food Dive reported on August 6.

The acquisition includes the Whiskey Ranch, the brand’s distillery that is open to the public for tastings on the outskirts of Fort Worth, Texas.

This deal comes on the heels of the French spirits giant acquiring Rabbit Hole Whiskey in June as it looks to bring brands into its portfolio with "unique and comprehensive value propositions," the company said in a release.

As the second largest liquor company behind Diageo, Pernod Ricard is doing well for a family business. Sales from recurring operations increased 6% in fiscal year 2018, compared to 3.6% the year before. However, outside investor Elliott Management Corp., a New York-based investor group led by billionaire Paul Singer, thinks it could do better.

Elliot, which revealed its more than a 2.5% stake in the company in 2018, specifically pointed out the French liquor company’s M&A strategy as a sore spot that could use improvement. One particular pain point is Pernod's acquisition of Absolut in 2008 for $8.3 billion, ...More info on site

Whisky news Argentina: Argentina’s first single malt whisky distillery to release new field-to-bottle whisky
Argentina’s first single malt whisky distillery, La Alazana based in Patagonia, is to release another first for the country – a field-to-bottle whisky made using barley grown and malted on site.

Speaking to The Drinks Business, co-founder of La Alazana, Lila Serenelli, said the distiller’s next launch would be the 100% Patagonia edition which would be unveiled in a “couple of years”.

“For this edition we are working together with the government agriculture institute (INTA) and our technology institute IPATEC – CONICET (UNCo) for which we are using wild Patagonian yeast during fermentation as well as our barley which is grown and malted on site.”

Serenelli explained that Argentina was a major producer of malting barley, however the varieties grown are those used in the production of beer. As such, for the production of its whisky, La Alazana must import malt from the UK.

This inspired Lila and her husband Nestor to attempt to grow their own crop.

“We are also pioneers in growing and malting whisky varieties of barley and have already had two seasons of excellent crops,” Serenelli added.

“The spirit for our 100% Patagonia whisky is already maturing. It was a big challenge for us, but we are moving along very well with ...More info on site
