Brewery news UK: Second lockdown will do little to boost breweries’ balance sheets
Appearing languid during the first half, the UK prime minister’s Halloween announcement of a second lockdown will do little to boost the balance sheets of breweries in the closing stages of 2020, the UK Investor Magazine reported on November 1.

Speaking on COVID challenges and the outlook for the beer industry, Mark Lynch, Partner at Oghma Partners, said:

“Results from Carlsberg, Heineken, AB InBev for the third quarter overall reflect the hiatus in the March of Covid-19 after the Q1 and Q2 hit of earlier in the year. As a result, the quarter saw generally positive volume evolution from the brewers albeit some margin impact as business switched from eat out and drink out destinations to lower margin retail business. The outlook remains mixed with a general concern about the resurgence of Covid-19 being reflected in the outlook and passed dividends (AB InBev).”

Reflecting the uncertainty facing breweries, even a summer spike in drinking activity in non-retail outlets couldn’t save Carlsberg revenues, down 2.1% during Q3 and falling over 8% during the year-to-date. Carlsberg’s CEO, Cees ’t Hart, said that, “The pandemic remains a concern for us, impacting our people, our customers and our businesses in many of our markets.”

Brewery news World: AB InBev CEO dismisses speculation of imminent departure
AB InBev’s long-serving CEO Carlos Britos has dismissed speculation that he is stepping down soon and told Reuters that he expects to be leading the company for “some time to come”, FoodBev.com reported on October 30.

Last month, the Financial Times reported that AB InBev had started searching for a replacement for Brito as he planned to step down at some point next year. After serving in his position of CEO for nearly 16 years, the newspaper said that he was involved in the hiring process and would join the board following his departure.

Following a phone interview with the current CEO after AB InBev released its third-quarter results, Reuters reported that Brito said he expects to remain the head of the brewer for “many quarters” to come.

According to Reuters, Brito referred to the previous announcement as “a whole bunch of rumours” that the company had not confirmed.

He added: “The two of us are going to continue to talk about results for the next many quarters. So, don’t worry about that. You’re not going to get rid of me.”

Brito allegedly said that the company looked into “succession planning” every year and had stepped up its efforts in light of the pandemic.

Brewery news The Netherlands: Heineken acquires Texelse Bierbrouwerij brewery
Beer brewer Heineken takes over its smaller peer, Texelse Bierbrouwerij. Both companies announced this on November 2. The Texel company employs eighty employees, all of whom will be transferred to the new owner, AlKhaleej Today reported.

The brewer of specialty beers such as Skuumkoppe was looking for a strategic partner in order to grow. Together with Heineken, Texelse Bierbrouwerij will work on better availability in the catering industry and growth of production.

Texelse Bierbrouwerij wanted to professionalize further, according to director Cor Honkoop. “We were already very well on track, we have had the best summer ever.” With Heineken as the new owner, the maker of thirteen types of beer will be able to take steps faster.

The Texel company remains autonomous under the Heineken flag. The beer giant also announced that the brewery will remain on Texel. Financial details have not been provided.

The brewery was founded twenty years ago and sells about 35,000 hectolitres of beer annually. The annual turnover in 2018 was around 11 million euros.

Brewery news Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania: Heineken appeals Sh1.79 billion compensation bill
Dutch beer maker Heineken has appealed a Sh1.79 billion compensation bill slapped on it for terminating a distributorship agreement with tycoon Ngugi Kiuna’s firm Maxam Ltd.

In the appeal pending before the Court of Appeal, Heineken East Africa Import Company Ltd and Heineken International B.V. said it was dissatisfied with the High Court’s decision issued in July last year.

The brewer has faulted Justice James Makau’s decision, arguing that the judge failed to consider the terms of the distributorship agreement.

Further, the alcohol maker said it was wrong for the judge to rule that Maxam Ltd had a legitimate expectation that the agreement would not be terminated.

“The learned judge erred by holding that the appellants constructively terminated the distribution agreement by appointing additional distributors despite injunctive orders,” the application reads.

Heineken maintained that the orders barring the appointment of additional distributors were not reinstated as ruled by the High Court. The firm further said Maxam did not prove any special damages and the orders issued affected third parties who were not involved in the case.

In a judgment last year, Justice Makau ruled that Mr Kiuna demonstrated that Heineken was in breach of the contract by constructively terminating a 2013 distributorship agreement by deliberately appointing ...More info on site

Barley news China & Australia: China bans shipments of Australian barley by Emerald Grain
The Chinese Government has banned shipments of Australian barley from Emerald Grain in a move which is expected to further impact importers in China and processors who have been exporting malt, the Grain Central reported on November 3.

Emerald is now the second Australian shipper to have its barley exports banned from entering China following the suspension of CBH Group barley sales in September.

China introduced a hefty tariff on Australian barley in May, and since then, only a few cargoes have been booked to China to supply barley to maltsters which sell malt into the export, rather than the domestic, market and have therefore been able to avoid the tariff.

Emerald Grain chief executive officer David Johnson said the company had shipped and discharged two cargoes of barley to China, one each in September and October, since the tariffs were introduced.

“We’ve got no more sales on to China, so it’s a bit of a moot point,” he said.

Mr Johnson said the second vessel finished discharging in China around two weeks ago, and a telephone call on Saturday from the Australian Department of Agriculture notified Emerald of China’s suspension.

“Brome grass was mentioned, but we have no knowledge of any level or which vessel.”

Barley news UK: Spring barley Diablo given full approval for brewing use
Spring barley variety Diablo has been given full approval for brewing use by the Malting Barley Committee, the Farmers Weekly reported on October 30.

The variety already had full approval for malt distilling, resulting in being the top-yielding spring barley variety with full approval for both uses on the current AHDB Recommended List.

“With this recent approval, Diablo now holds the title of being dual-use, demonstrating the robustness of its quality characteristics, as required by end users in both the brewing and malt distilling sectors,” says Matt Shand, UK national sales manager for Limagrain UK.

Diablo has a yield of 105% of the control and, significantly, its yields are highest in the key malting barley growing areas of the East (106%) and North (107%).
