Brewery news World: Carlsberg appoints new CEO
Danish brewer Carlsberg has appointed the current head of services provider ISS as its new chief executive, the company said on March 16.

Jacob Aarup-Andersen, a Danish national, will replace Dutchman Cees 't Hart, who said earlier this month he would retire at the end of September.

Shares in Carlsberg extended gains on the news, closing 4.3% higher, while ISS' shares fell 7%.

The CEO's starting date will be announced later, the world's third largest brewer said in a statement.

"Jakob was very clearly our preferred candidate," Chairman Henrik Poulsen told journalists on a conference call.

"He is a visionary leader and represents a strong combination of strategic, analytical and financial skills," Poulsen said.

Aarup-Andersen became CEO at ISS in 2020 after Denmark's financial regulator rejected him for the top job at Danske Bank, on the grounds that his banking experience was not sufficient.

"For me, Carlsberg is more than just a company. It's part of Denmark's cultural heritage," Aarup-Andersen said, adding that he will not make changes to the company's current strategy.

During Aarup-Andersen's more than two years at ISS, where he was in charge of 350,000 employees in more than 30 countries, shares have risen around 50%.

Carlsberg's executive team has undergone large changes in the last ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Government helps pubs by raising 'draught relief' on beer
Britain's finance minister Jeremy Hunt offered some help to pubs on March 15 by increasing "draught relief", making the rate of duty on draught beer and cider up to 11 pence lower than the charge on cans or bottles bought in a supermarket from August, Reuters reported.

The measure will coincide with a rise in alcohol taxes in line with inflation, ending a freeze that has been in since 2020, and will result in no change in the duty paid on a typical pint poured from a tap in a pub, the government said.

"In December, I extended the alcohol duty freeze until August 1st, after which duties will go up in line with inflation in the usual way," Hunt told parliament in his budget statement.

"But today, I will do something that was not possible when we were in the EU and significantly increase the generosity of Draught Relief, so that from August 1st the duty on draught products in pubs will be up to 11p lower than the duty in supermarkets, a differential we will maintain as part of a new Brexit pubs guarantee."

The government is also pressing ahead with reforms that will increase taxes on stronger alcoholic products, such as ...More info on site

Brewery news Central African Republic: French brewery attack flags Russia's tussle for influence in Africa
On a night in early March, arsonists attacked a brewery owned by the French drinks giant Castel in Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic, Yahoo Finance reported on March 16.

Hurling petrol bombs, they set fire to beer crates stacked inside the MOCAF brewery's fortified storage yard.

But this was not some random assault by firebugs.

Footage from security cameras, say sources familiar with the incident, shows a planned operation by four men wearing fatigues resembling those of the Russian mercenary group Wagner.

The attack, they say, bears the hallmarks of a ruthless campaign to carve out Russian influence in the CAR, a country poor but replete with valuable forests, gold and commercial minerals.

France and Russia have long been wrestling for influence in CAR, a country wracked by poverty and plagued by a nearly decade-long civil conflict.

But until this physical attack on French interests, the confrontation had been largely limited to anti-French trolling, seeking to poison relations between the CAR and its former colonial power.

In December 2020, Facebook removed troll "factories" and other sources of fake news allegedly controlled by entities linked to Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin, as well as accounts reportedly linked to the French military.

Last December, France pulled its last ...More info on site

Brewery news Kenya: EABL, Diageo directors face Sh39bn fine in Supreme Court suit
Directors of East African Breweries Limited (EABL) and its parent company Diageo face multi-billion shilling fines after being accused of disobeying a Kenya Supreme Court order on a beer supply contract, the Business Daily reported on March 17.

The brewer’s former supplier, Bia Tosha Distributors Ltd, wants the directors to be fined an equivalent of 20 percent of EABL’s sales, or Sh39 billion, for refusing to give it back beer distributorship routes in parts of Nairobi, Machakos and Kajiado.

The Supreme Court last month ordered EABL to reinstate Bia Tosha on the contested routes following a suit that has dragged in court since 2016.

Bia Tosha told the Supreme Court that EABL has ‘sponsored’ the present distributors to sue at the High Court in a bid to derail the implementation of the apex court’s order.

“The respondents have acted with reckless abandon and with total contempt for the authority of this court, have continued to infringe upon the applicant’s distribution areas,” Anne-Marie Burugu, managing director of Bia Tosha, says in documents filed in court.

“…That the respondents upon conviction for the contempt, be condemned, individually and collectively, to pay a fine equivalent to 20 percent of their individual gross company turnovers as reflected in their ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: AB InBev loses jury trial over Constellation’s Corona, Modelo seltzers
A Manhattan federal jury on March 15 found that Constellation Brands Inc did not violate a U.S. distribution agreement with Anheuser-Busch InBev SA unit Grupo Modelo by selling hard seltzers branded with the Modelo and Corona names, Reuters reported.

The jury accepted Constellation's argument that its license to distribute beer bearing Modelo's brand names also allows it to sell alcoholic drinks like Corona Hard Seltzer and Modelo Ranch Water.

A Grupo Modelo spokesperson said the company was disappointed with the verdict and "evaluating all options."

A Constellation spokesperson said the company was pleased with the verdict and remains "committed to continuing to operate in accordance with the terms of our sublicense agreement."

A Constellation predecessor began distributing Mexico-based Modelo's beers in 1996. Modelo sued Constellation in 2021, alleging its 2020 launch of Corona Hard Seltzer breached their licensing agreement and infringed its trademarks.

Modelo added Modelo Ranch Water to the lawsuit last year after Constellation launched the alcoholic sparkling water drink.

Constellation told the court that the drinks are covered by part of its license that allows it to sell "other versions" of beer or malt beverages under the Modelo brand names.

U.S. Circuit Judge Lewis Kaplan determined in December that the contract's definition of the term ...More info on site

Whisky news UK: Scotch Whisky Association slams decision to raise duty on Scotch whisky by 10.1%
The Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) has slammed the decision by the UK Chancellor to raise duty on Scotch whisky by 10.1%, in one of the largest tax hikes in recent decades and, say the SWA, further increase the competitive disadvantage faced by spirits – breaking the UK government’s pledge to “review alcohol duty to ensure our tax system is supporting Scottish whisky,” dramscotland.co.uk reported on March 15.

Meanwhile Nuno Teles, Managing Director Diageo GB, said, “Today’s decision is a hammer blow for pubs, drinkers and for Scotch, a UK homegrown industry supporting tens of thousands of jobs. We urge the Chancellor to reverse this punitive and inflationary tax hike.”

The SWA say in a statement that, in the budget, “the Chancellor increased duty across all four alcohol categories, with relief provided for on-draught products, which make up less than half of those sold behind the bar and not available to 99% of distillers. The duty rate on spirits will rise to £31.64 per litre of pure alcohol, meaning that of the £15.22 average price of a bottle of Scotch Whisky, £11.40 is collected in taxation through duty and VAT. The tax burden on the averaged priced bottle of Scotch Whisky has ...More info on site
