0 India & Japan: Sapporo Breweries is eyeing Indian beer market

Sapporo Breweries Ltd., one of the leading Japanese beer makers, is planning to enter India market in the near future. An official from Sapporo is expected to visit India during the third week of March to explore opportunities in the country, according to Business Line. Sapporo Breweries is either to create a joint venture or to acquire breweries in the country, Sify Business News posted on February 25.

"Nobody wants to miss out on one of the fastest growing markets in the world," a consultant with the beer industry said. The official is expected to hold meetings with major beer companies in India before finalising plans for the company's foray into the country, sources said.

Sapporo's trump card to make an immediate presence in the country could be its `third beer' brand, Draft One, a beer-like low-alcohol beverage, which it might bring into India, though it could still face competition from the country's booming strong beer market.

While beer is made from malt, third beers use pea or soy protein or soy peptide and have light and crisp taste. They have found an instant market in Japan beating even mainstream beer brands there. At the same time, sales of the big ...

0 Canada: First CWB PRO for 2006-07 range from C$1 to C$5 per tonne lower for malting barley

The CWB released on February 27 its first Pool Return Outlook (PRO) for the 2006-07 crop year. The 2006-2007 feed barley PRO (Pool A) is down C$12 per tonne, while malting barley PROs range from C$1 to C$5 per tonne lower, compared to the February PRO for the 2005-06 crop year.

Feed barley
Global feed barley import demand is projected to decline in 2006-07, due primarily to increased barley production in North Africa and the Middle East. Barley production is also projected to increase in the Black Sea region, as Ukraine and Russia are expected to increase spring barley area due to greatly reduced winter wheat area. Burdensome Australian barley supplies are expected to weigh on export values over the next number of months until its supply situation eases. Barley production in the European Union is expected to increase, but the EU has not been aggressive in subsidizing exports. Canada's potential for feed barley exports will be influenced by the volume of the Canadian domestic crop, ocean freight rates, and foreign exchange.

Designated barley
Global malting barley trade is projected to increase due to stronger demand in China and the United States. Rising beer production in China will continue to increase malting barley demand, ...
