Brewery news World: Heineken to offer two zero-alcohol options in the majority of its markets by 2023
Heineken will ensure it offers two zero-alcohol options in the majority of its markets by 2023: driven by Heineken 0.0 and a portfolio of 130 non-alcoholic line extensions, BeverageDaily.com reported on April 22. Its pledge will be powered by alcohol-free Heineken 0.0: which the company says will continue to be ‘an integral part of Heineken’.

In 2020, Heineken 0.0 grew ‘strong double digits’: against flat volumes for brand Heineken (0.4%) and an 8.1% decline for the overall beer portfolio in the pandemic year. In Brazil, Mexico and the US in particular, the brand had an ‘outstanding performance’.

The 0.0 brand has continued strong performance into Q1 2021: reporting double digit growth. The brand is now available in 94 markets globally.

While Heineken 0.0 is the driver of the company’s zero-alcohol offer, the company pledges to have two zero options in most markets. Its portfolio currently contains 130 non-alcohol line extensions: with the company promising more innovation in this area.

“The zero alcohol category is an important business driver ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Unable to meet demand, Asahi to suspend sales of canned Super Dry beer
As people have more opportunities to drink alcoholic beverages at home due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, each Japanese beer manufacturer has enjoyed robust sales of their canned products, The Japan News reported on April 22.

A typical example of this special demand for household consumption is Asahi Super Dry Nama Jokki Can (Asahi Super Dry Draft Beer Can) by Asahi Breweries Ltd. The beer maker announced on April 21 that it has suspended sales as demand has exceeded initial expectations.

Asahi Breweries had started selling the product nationwide on April 20. The special can allows consumers to enjoy the sensation of drinking a real draft beer with a lot of foam from a mug in the same way they would at eating and drinking establishments.

When the can is opened, bubbles naturally come out. According to the beer maker, a special coating technique has been applied to the inside of the can so that bubbles emerge easily.

Immediately after the product was launched in convenience stores on April 6, there was a shortage of supply, and the company suspended shipments. It put a production system in place and started selling the product at supermarkets and other retailers on Tuesday, but the production of ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Boston Beer reports increase in Q1 net revenue, shipments
The Boston Beer Company, Inc. reported first quarter 2021 net revenue of $545.1 million, an increase of $214.5 million or 64.9% from the same period last year, mainly due to an increase in shipments of 60.1%, PRNewswire reported on April 22.

Net income for the first quarter was $65.6 million, an increase of $47.3 million or 259.6% from the same period last year.

Earnings per diluted share were $5.26, an increase of $3.77 per diluted share, or 253.0% from the first quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily due to increased net revenue, partially offset by increases in operating expenses.

In the first quarter of 2020, the company recorded pre-tax COVID-19 related reductions in net revenue and increases in costs that totaled $10.0 million or $0.60 per diluted share.

In the first quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2020, the company recorded a tax benefit of $0.69 per diluted share and $0.17 per diluted share, respectively, resulting from the Accounting Standard "Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting" ("ASU 2016-09").

Jim Koch, Chairman and Founder of the company, commented, "As the world slowly reopens and the COVID-19 pandemic winds down, our primary focus continues to be on operating our breweries and our ...More info on site

Brewery news The Dominican Republic: Wholesale and retail traders criticize platform used by CND to distribute and market its beer
Wholesale and retail traders criticize the Bees platform used by Cervecería Nacional Dominicana (CND) to distribute and market its own products as they claim it is monopolistic and creates unfair competition due to abuse of dominant market position, the Dominican Today reported on April 21.

On the other hand, José Infante, general director of Bees RD, when asked about this conflict, explains that they are an inclusive platform for all businesses that wish to enter and do not seek to compete for wholesale market shares.

He explained that CND is a supplier of Abejas Logistic Group, with whom they have an alliance for the distribution and delivery of the products marketed on their Bees platform.

“Our customers enter the platform any day and at any time, and they have the freedom to choose the products they want and need. Our platform has a diversified offer, which includes multiple categories of products such as canned goods, juices, milk, wines, spirits, and beers from other manufacturers to which our clients have quick and agile access,” he explained.

However, the president of the National Council of Commerce in Provisions (CNCP), Tomás Marcano, stated that this platform Bees not only distributes and markets Cervecería products but also other ...More info on site

Barley news France: Condition of wheat and barley crops deteriorates marginally but is still good
The condition of French wheat and barley crops deteriorated marginally for a second week but was still good, data from farm office FranceAgriMer showed on April 23, suggesting a moderate impact so far from recent cold, dry spells, Nasdaq reported.

An estimated 85% of French soft wheat was in good or excellent condition in the week to April 19, down from 86% the prior week and 87% two weeks earlier, according to FranceAgriMer's cereal crop progress report.

The good/excellent score for winter barley fell to 81% from 83% after also shedding two points the week before, while the spring barley rating lost one point to 87% after a sharper four-point decline the week before.

The wheat and barley ratings remained well above levels seen last year when crops were hurt by torrential rain during sowing.

Unusually severe frosts in France two weeks ago ravaged vineyards, fruit orchards and sugar beet fields, with losses expected to be more limited for cereals.

FranceAgriMer's cereal reports do not give commentary on crop conditions. The head of the offices crop committee told reporters last week that there was concern about damage in parts of central and southern France, but it would take time to measure.

A thawing in temperatures helped ...More info on site
