Brewery news The Netherlands: Heineken to increase beer and cider prices by an average of 10.7%
Heineken will increase its beer and cider prices by an average of 10.7 percent on January 1. The beer giant informed catering entrepreneurs in the Netherlands about it on Tuesday, November 29. That comes on top of the 5.8 price increase it implemented in August, De Gelderlander reports.

Catering entrepreneurs are despondent. “We are in a vicious cycle, restaurant owner Frans van Breemen of Facet in Rotterdam said to the newspaper. Restaurants are already facing higher energy costs, rent increases, staff shortages, and coronavirus debts waiting to be paid off. It’s difficult to see a way out, he said.

Hospitality association KHN has not yet released an official response, but chairman Rober Willemsen told the newspaper that they are “not amused.”

Heineken also has higher energy bills and more expensive raw materials to deal with, a spokesperson stressed. The brewer is only passing on some of its increased costs. “We absorb part of the costs ourselves. We want to deal with it in a responsible manner, but we cannot avoid passing this on. It is significant, but the price increases are huge,” they said. “We live in unusual times.

According to data from the Korea Customs Service, $31.16 million of Chinese beer was imported into the country in October - the highest total for imported beer from one country for the month.

The data shows a drastic recovery from 2020, when the pandemic hit the nation the hardest and left many here reluctant to purchase Chinese products.

Chinese beer imports in February 2020 had amounted to $1.3 million, down 32.7 percent from the same period the year before, according to data from the Korea Trade Statistics Promotion.

The recovery in beer imported from China follows the coronavirus pandemic reaching its endemic phase and the consequently eased anxiety toward Chinese products.

In addition to the strong comeback of Chinese beer, the amount of imported Japanese beer also saw a resurgence this year, following an extended campaign to boycott Japanese products and services, fueled by Japan’s export curbs on key high-tech materials crucial for South Korean tech firms, which ...More info on site

According to Lester Tan, the company's senior vice-president and chief of its beer business in Thailand, Chang Unpasteurized, Thailand's first-ever unpasteurised beer, was launched to the market a few days ago at several pubs, bars, restaurants and hotels.

The company aims to cover over 100 locations in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai over the next few years.

Brewery news Malawi: Castel Malawi struggling with forex shortage issues
Castel Malawi has disclosed that it has unsettled outstanding bills totalling over USD18 mln which equals over MWK18 bln due to unavailability of forex and the situation, if continues, will see the production of its flagship brand, the Carlsberg Green being suspended for the unforeseeable future, the Nyasa Times reported on November 29.

Already, the company has stopped production of its spirits line, namely Malawi Gin, Premier Brandy, and Malawi Vodka, due to acute shortage of raw materials which can only be accessed through forex.

Speaking in Lilongwe last week when he was introduced to government officials including members of parliament, newly appointed Managing Director for Castel Malawi Thomas Reynaud said acute shortage of forex has seriously impacted the operations of the company.

“Spirits production has been suspended due to acute shortage of returnable bottles since we do not have a local supplier and Carlsberg Green is at the verge of suspension as well due to unavailability of materials. Foreign suppliers have stopped shipping key materials due to old overdue bills.”

“The company has a total unsettled outstanding bill of USD18 mln and we require USD14 mln immediately to ease the pressure with our suppliers to release new materials and in order for us ...More info on site

Oriental Brewery's flagship beer brand Cass secured the top market share in the domestic beer market in October and seeks to continue its momentum via various promotions related to the World Cup, South Korea's largest beer maker said on November 30.

According to market research firm Nielsen Korea, Cass logged the largest market share in the off-trade market for the beer industry in October.

Barley news Canada, AB: Large shipments of US corn to keep Canadian barley prices under pressure
Large shipments of corn from the U.S., slated for delivery to Alberta’s feedlot alley, should keep domestic barley prices under pressure going forward, according to an analyst, the Canadian Cattlemen reported on December 1.

“The barley price here will gradually decline,” said Errol Anderson of Pro Market Communications in Calgary, adding that up to 30 unit trains of U.S. corn were booked already.

A 100-car unit train typically amounts to about 8,000 to 10,000 tonnes of grain.

“Once these cattle go onto corn, they won’t go back to barley — they’re done for the year,” said Anderson. He noted feeders like using corn, as it’s cheaper than barley.

In addition, “the export price is still at quite a discount to the domestic… so it’s not like the export market will suddenly compete with the domestic market.”

With feedlots booking corn, “the market has already planned its course for the rest of the marketing year,” Anderson said.

Feed barley in Alberta is currently trading at anywhere from C$7.33 per bushel to as high as C$9.91 per bushel, delivered to the elevator, according to Prairie Ag Hotwire data.

Weekly U.S. export sales data shows that Canadian corn imports are currently running well behind the year-ago level, when drought cut ...More info on site

Barley news UK: New project seeks to explore producing of barley with 50% lower emissions
A new on-farm project will explore how barley can be grown in a more sustainable way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while maintaining crop performance, FarmingUK reported on November 29.

The ambition of the regenerative farming trial is to produce barley with 50% lower GHG emissions within five years.

Malted barley contributes 39% and 41% to the carbon footprint of beer and whisky respectively.

In the first year, 16 farmers are dedicating around 400 acres specifically to the trial, producing over 1,000 tonnes of barley from spring and winter varieties.

The trial is an effort between Japanese multinational brewing group the Suntory Group, malt supplier Muntons, supply chain consultancy Future Food Solutions and Norfolk-based barley farmers, Dewing Grain.

The project will start by baselining all crop-related emissions, which will inform an innovative nature-based programme of interventions that seek to reduce emissions while maintaining grain quality.

The success of this trial could pave the way for reducing the overall value chain of production by 20% in a single leap.

Adrian Dyter, head of procurement at Muntons, said: "We’re proud to have been the first maltster to develop a carbon calculator to help identify where the biggest impact of reductions can be made.

"We have invested heavily in reducing Scope ...More info on site

Barley news UK: AHDB posts Recommended Lists for cereals and oilseeds
AHDB’s Recommended Lists for cereals and oilseeds (RL) 2023/24 features new varieties that deliver large yield increases, especially in barley and oilseed rape, FarmingUK.com reported on November 28.

The edition sees a relatively small number of varieties added, including the first new winter malting barley and winter oat varieties for several years.

The latest update was released alongside details of a major review of the RL, which aims to help the variety trialling project keep pace with the industry’s evolving requirements.

RL 2023-2024, launched on Monday (28 November), includes several new barley varieties that bring strength to yield and disease resistance.

The winter barley list includes the first malting variety added since 2018. Buccaneer, from Saaten Union, offers a big yield increase over the established two-row malting varieties, Craft and Electrum, alongside good disease resistance.

Two new two-row and one new six-row hybrid varieties add strength to winter barley feed yields (compared with current favourites). The two rows are Bolivia, from Agrii (bred by Nordic Seed), and LG Caravelle, from Limagrain.

The latter offers a particularly high yield in the East region and a good specific weight. The new six-row hybrid SY Nephin, from Syngenta, is notable for its disease resistance ratings of 8 for brown ...More info on site
