0 Germany: Anheuser-Busch now faces a legal challenge from Bitburger Brauerei

USA’s largest beer maker, Anheuser-Busch Cos., which has fought a Czech competitor over the Budweiser and Bud names for decades, now faces a legal challenge from the German brewer, Bitburger Brauerei, Bloomberg posted on January 17.

Based in the German town of Bitburg, Bitburger Brauerei, wants the European Union's trademark office to annul the Anheuser Busch Bud and American Bud trademarks.

Anheuser Busch Bud “is difficult to pronounce, especially after drinking beer'' and so consumers tend to shorten it to “Bud,'' the brewer said in documents at the European Court of First Instance in Luxembourg on January 17. When ordering in noisy bars, the use of “Bud'' can lead to confusion over Bitburger's trademark “Bit,'' the brewer said.

Bitburger has about 5 % of the German beer market compared with market leader Inbev NV's 12 percent, said Marcel Hooijmaijers, an analyst at Kepler Equities in Amsterdam.

St. Louis, Missouri-based Anheuser-Busch said there's no risk of confusion, arguing that the German pronunciation of “Bit'' and ”Bud'' are completely different. In addition, most beer is bought at stores and consumed at home, away from noisy bars where consumers have to shout to order drinks, the company said. A ruling is expected this ...

The scheme was set up to help the tracking and traceability procedures to help ensure food safety. New laws on traceability went into effect throughout the EU on 1 January. "Traceability has become very important in the EU," an AUKM spokesperson told FoodProductionDaily.com. "There are other schemes for assuring grain, so we decided to create the scheme for assuring malt as the next step to help our customers."

The scheme requires malt suppliers to follow hygienic food safety practices. They must be able trace the origin of the grain through the supply chain and guarantee it is not contaminated. The AUKM service has since expanded its service to include programmes on legality, good operational practice and product quality.

Recently, AUKM received accreditation from the International Accreditation Forum as a registered vetter of malt manufacturers. Accreditation reduces risk for business and its customers by assuring them that the vetting organisation is competent to carry out the work they undertake.
