Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands reports Q3 fiscal 2022 results with full year beer business net sales growth now expected at up to 11%
Constellation Brands, Inc., a leading beverage alcohol company, reported on January 6 its third quarter fiscal 2022 results.

Despite difficult year-over-year volume comparisons, Constellation’s Beer Business posted depletion growth of more than 8%, driven by the continued strength of Modelo Especial and explosive growth from Corona Extra. Depletion volume selling days were flat year-over-year.

Modelo Especial beer achieved 13% depletion growth and continued to be the No. 1 brand in the high-end and No. 1 brand share gainer in the entire US beer category in IR dollar sales; Modelo Chelada posted 35% depletion growth and is now the No. 1 Chelada in the US beer market.

Corona Extra reported depletion growth of 11% and remained the No. 2 import share gainer and No. 3 brand in the high-end in IRI channels.

The beer business’ operating margin decreased 130 basis points to 41.3%, as benefits from favourable pricing and timing of marketing spend were more than offset by increased COGS driven by expected higher material and brewery costs, as well as increased depreciation.

Cases shipped exceeded cases depleted as distributor inventory levels began to rebuild during the quarter. Product inventories are expected to return to normal levels by the end of the fiscal year, as cases shipped are expected ...More info on site

Brewery news Hungary: Hungarian competition watchdog goes after beer giants, fast food chains
After a months-long grace period, the Hungarian Competition Authority (GVH) launched proceedings against Kentucky Fried Chicken, Burger King, and beer producers Dreher, Borsodi and Heineken to enforce the new beverage procurements regulations, Telex reported via state news agency MTI.

Restaurants had until 1 August last year to bring their practices in line with new rules of the commercial code, which aims to clamp down on exclusive drinks contracts and encourage smaller drinks producers to enter the market.

Last year, the GVH strongly warned the companies now under investigation to prepare for the legislative changes in good time.

The market watchdog now alleges that KFC and Burger King are not compliant with the rules and continue to sell only one manufacturer’s products in certain beverage categories.

The competition authority now also said it thinks that three beer producers with significant market power, Dreher, Borsodi and Heineken, have exclusive contracts with certain pubs, going against the requirement that at least two different beer producers’ products be available on the shelves.

Brewery news Japan: Asahi Group making the first ‘full renewal’ of its flagship Super Dry beer brand
Japan's Asahi Group Holdings said on January 5 it was making the first "full renewal" of its flagship Super Dry beer brand since its debut in 1987, modifying the taste and look of the brew, Reuters reported.

The brewing method will be tweaked to give Super Dry a more distinctive, "faint-hop" aroma, the company said in a release. The trademark silver logo and can will also get a makeover, with the changes to go into effect from mid-February.

The changes are a response to increasing competition in Japan's shrinking domestic market, the company said.

Asahi Group is Japan's biggest beer maker with a near 40% share of the market.

Brewery news World: Corona launching non-alcoholic beer containing 30% of the daily value of vitamin D
Global beer brand Corona is launching Corona Sunbrew 0.0%: with the non-alcoholic beer containing 30% of the daily value of vitamin D in a 330ml serving, the Beverage Daily reported on January 5. The brand will debut in Canada this month: followed by the UK later this year and then other key markets in Europe, South America and Asia.

The ‘innovative, first-of-its-kind, non-alcoholic beer’ contains a 30% daily value of vitamin D (as per Canadian guidelines) to link in with the brand’s outdoor ethos, coming in at 60 calories per 330ml serving. The Sunbrew is made by extracting alcohol from Corona Extra and then blending the non-alcoholic beer with vitamin D and natural flavors.

“As a brand that was born on the beach, Corona embraces the outdoors in everything we do, because we believe that outside is where people best disconnect and relax.  The feeling of the sun is one of the things that people love most about the outdoors and the Corona brand is always innovating to remind them of that feeling,” said Felipe Ambra, Global Vice President for Corona. 

“Now, we’re excited to offer consumers Corona Sunbrew 0.0%, the first non-alcoholic beer with ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands to hike beer prices more than its typical 1% to 2% this year
Constellation Brands Inc., the maker of alcoholic drinks including Corona and Modelo, said it expects to hike beer prices more than its typical 1% to 2% this coming year due to rising commodity costs and a shortage of brown glass, Bloomberg reported on January 6.

Chief Financial Officer Garth Hankinson said on the company’s third-quarter earnings call on January 6 that margins in the core beer business may suffer in the coming fiscal year in part because of inflation in commodity prices. He still expects operating margins for the beer business to be around 39% to 40% over the long term.

The glass shortage is the latest hit for beer makers, who spent the last year talking about shortages of aluminum cans as people switched from drinking at bars and keg parties to drinking at home or outside. MKM Partners analyst Bill Kirk said in a November research note that while Constellation’s most-affected brand seems to be Pacifico, Modelo Negra beers also come in brown glass and the largest risk would be if glass availability became so severe as to limit sales of Corona or Modelo Especial.

“We are diligently working to address the brown glass shortage that is acting as a headwind,” ...More info on site
