Interbrew Romania, the third largest player on the local beer market invested over 55 million euros (rate-card) last year to promote all the beer brands in its portfolio, Ziarul Financiar cited Mihai Ghyka, general manager of Interbrew on January 24.

The amount invested is 48% higher compared with 2005, when Interbrew had earmarked 37.1 million euros to promote its brands, according to AlfaCont.

"The domestic advertising market is growing by 25-30% in value, but this growth is mainly because of the rising prices of commercial airtime on television. The higher the price becomes, the more necessary it is for us to consider using other media. The printed media and the outdoor advertising become more interesting," states the general manager of Interbrew.

0 World: Prices for feed and malting barley for 2007-2008 are projected to decrease

World barley production for 2007-08 is forecast by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) to increase by 5% to 146 million metric tonnes, due mainly to an increase in seeded area and a return to normal yields in Australia and Canada. Total supply is expected to increase only slightly due to lower carry-in stocks, AAFC reported on January 12.

World barley trade is forecast to increase by 13% to 17.5 million metric tonnes. World carry-out stocks are expected to decrease by 4%. As a result, world prices are projected to decrease for feed barley and malting barley for 2007-2008.

0 Canada: Minister Strahl announces barley plebiscite question

The Honourable Chuck Strahl, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food and Minister for the Canadian Wheat Board, announced on January 22 the question that will be asked in the upcoming plebiscite on the marketing of barley in Western Canada and the criteria for voter eligibility, according to CCNMatthews.

"Canada's New Government believes Western grain farmers should have the choice on how they market their grain while preserving a strong, viable, yet voluntary Wheat Board," said Minister Strahl. "Farmers have told us that they want to be consulted on this issue - and that is exactly what we are delivering. I look forward to what they have to say so I encourage all those eligible to vote to do so."

The question on the ballot will be:

- The Canadian Wheat Board should retain the single desk for the marketing of barley into domestic human consumption and export markets.

- I would like the option to market my barley to the Canadian Wheat Board or any other domestic or foreign buyer.

- The Canadian Wheat Board should not have a role in the marketing of barley.

Canada's New Government campaigned openly during the last election on providing marketing choice for Western grain ...
