0 World & Tanzania: Tanzanian beer Serengeti is now available in the UK, Holland and Australia

The premium Serengeti lager, a malting beer manufactured in Tanzania by Serengeti Breweries Ltd, is now available in the UK, Holland and Australia, The EastAfrican news agency communicated on January 25.

Shantanu Chitgopkar, general manager, sales and marketing of Serengeti Breweries, told The EastAfrican that there had been growing demand from African residents in Europe and Australia.
Mr Chitgopkar said strategically, the UK and Australia were then selected by Serengeti Breweries Ltd to test the brand on the international market. "Serengeti was supplied to the UK and Australia as trial orders and Tanzanians in particular and other East African consumers residing in the UK have responded well to the product. There are strong indications of repeat orders," he said.

The beer, with a leopard trademark on the bottle, has a 4.8 % alcohol content.

Serengeti Breweries Ltd is the second largest brewery in Tanzania. In December 2003, it entered into a joint venture with Interbrew of Belgium to brew Stella Artois under licence following a $4 million investment in a brewery in Dar es Salaam. Stella Artois, a classic European lager, is a bottom fermented blond pilsner with an alcohol content of 5.2 %.

0 Australia: ABB Grain said barley pools closed – new pools opened

ABB Grain Ltd announced on January 24 it has closed its barley pools nationally but has immediately opened new pools.

ABB’s general manager marketing, Nigel Officer, said the decision to close the existing pools – the No.1 malting and No.1 feed barley pools in South Australia and the No.2 malting and No.2 feed barley pools in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland – was due to several factors.

“The primary reason is to protect the interests of growers who have already delivered to the pools,” Mr Officer said. “There is a possibility, given the large size of the Australian barley crop, that we will still be marketing some of this when the next northern hemisphere crop becomes available – therefore we will be in competition with that crop.

“Also, the recent appreciation of the Australian dollar has led us to make this decision to close the pools in the best commercial interests of growers who have already delivered to us. Growers are aware that ABB can do this at any time.”

ABB will open a No.2 pool in South Australia for malting barley with a gross indicator price of A$170/tonne and a No.2 pool for feed barley with a gross indicator price of A$150/t.
