Brewery news Thailand: Chang beer’s parent company eyeing mass-premium market to expand its catalogue and profits
Chang beer’s parent company, Chang International Co., is eyeing the mass-premium beer market to expand its catalogue and profits. The company announced plans to invest 1 billion baht to grow its beer business and strengthen its portfolio with Chang Cold Brew, the Thaiger reported on February 28.

With the pandemic easing, the economy coming back, and tourism blooming, people are spending more on booze. Chang is striking while the iron is hot and pushing Chang Cold Brew.

Chang Cold Brew, its beer in the mass-premium category, was introduced to the market in 2019 and garnered a favourable reception from its customers. Despite being predominantly available in upscale restaurants and modern trade outlets, the company intends to expand its customer reach by concentrating on distributing Chang Cold Brew through conventional trade channels.

The goal of the company is to establish a distinctive brand identity for Chang Cold Brew. The mass-premium beer market in Thailand is worth 25 billion baht, about 12.5% of the overall beer market. They aim to broaden their consumer base and encourage more drinking occasions by launching new products with inventive packaging.

Lester Tan, the senior vice president and head of the beer business, stated that the marketing budget will prioritise traditional ...More info on site

Brewery news Kenya: Diageo leaves open possibility of buying additional EABL shares from open market
British multinational Diageo has left open the possibility of buying additional EABL shares from the open market at the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) once its tender offer for an extra 14.97 percent stake in the brewer closes later this month, the Business Daily Africa reported on March 1.

The London-based firm, which is executing the acquisition of the additional stake through its wholly-owned subsidiary Diageo Kenya, ran the first phase of the tender between February 6 and 17, while the second phase opened on February 27, to run until March 17.

In its tender offer document released before the sale opened on February 6, Diageo said that it would retain a right to roll out additional tenders, or purchase stock in the open market, raising the possibility that the firm might further add to its stake in EABL down the road.

It is seeking to buy a total of 118.4 million shares in the brewer in the current tender offer at a cost of Sh192 per unit, which puts the total purchase cost at Sh22.7 billion.

The London-based firm currently holds a 50.03 percent stake, representing 395.6 million shares, in EABL through Diageo Kenya. Should the tender offer be fully subscribed, this stake will ...More info on site

Brewery news Luxembourg: Brasserie Nationale content with last year’s numbers
Beer-drinking is becoming less popular worldwide, according to recent stats; but Luxembourg's Brasserie Nationale was nonetheless content with last year's numbers, RTL Today reported on March 2.

In 2022, the brewery produced 210,400 hectolitres of beer and water, bringing beer back to pre-Covid lockdown levels in 2019.

Mathias Lentz, director of Brasserie Nationale, said Luxembourg was a beer-drinking country, and beer consumption had remained relatively stable over the past few years.

Despite this, the decline in sales of local beer brands was down to the fact that the Duchy had imported many international beers over the past year or so. Since 2019, the company has made at least 20% of its profit from selling water.

Brewery news UK: No and low alcohol beer now growing faster than any other beer type in the UK, Tesco saysu
Soaring UK demand for no and low alcohol beer is now so strong that it is growing faster than any other beer type including super trendy craft varieties.

At Tesco demand for no and low beer has rocketed by nearly 40 per cent in the last two years helped by the introduction of dedicated brands such as Lucky Saint, Athletic Brewing and Days 0%.

Notably, it’s not just the annual Dry January campaign that is inspiring healthier drinking, with Tesco recording its highest ever Christmas week demand for no and low beer as sales soared by 43 per cent on the previous year.

The supermarket also reports a new shopping pattern emerging with no and low beer drinkers switching to buying larger pack sizes rather than single cans or bottles, as a result of more confidence in the quality now available.

Brewery news South Africa: South African Breweries embarks on a restructuring process that could affect some 40 jobs
South African Breweries (SAB), the local unit of global brewing giant Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev), has embarked on a retrenchment process at its local operations that could affect some 40 jobs, News24 reported on March 2.

In response to questions from News24, SAB confirmed on March 2 it had embarked on a restructuring process and had started consultations with affected employees, saying that only a "very small amount – less than 0.01%" of the group's 5 000 permanent South African jobs would be affected.

It also planned, where possible, to absorb affected staff into other areas of its business.

The company said the process followed it having reviewed its operating models across the business in line with its "continuous improvement processes and a dynamic environment globally".

"This review recommended changes to human resource allocations."

It said the process it had undertaken "adhered to both the spirit and letter of labour relations legislation" and that it was currently consulting with the affected employees.

Earlier on March 2, its parent AB InBev reported SAB had delivered record total-full-year volumes after its beer market share moved ahead of its pre-pandemic levels.

Explaining the strong performance, AB InBev said a "focused commercial investment" and consistently executing its strategy for increasing ...More info on site
