Brewery news USA: MillerCoors’ plan to close North Carolina brewery investigated by state authorities
North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper spoke at a Teamsters rally outside of the MillerCoors brewery in Eden, N.C., on March 31.

MillerCoors announced plans to close the Eden brewery in September 2015, just two days before merger talks between AB InBev and SABMiller became public. SABMiller and Molson Coors are co-owners of MillerCoors.

The Eden brewery is a large and efficient facility that accounts for approximately 12.5 percent of MillerCoors' beer production and nearly 4 percent of the entire U.S. beer market. The Teamsters believe that the timing of the closure announcement was not accidental, and the closure, if it takes place, may lead to higher beer prices.

At the rally, Cooper indicated that North Carolina is investigating the decision to close the brewery. He stated that his office has sent investigative demands and set up meetings with the companies involved. He also indicated that the state is working with the U.S. Department of Justice, which is overseeing the antitrust investigation of the AB InBev/SABMiller merger.

"This shutdown will be devastating for the brewery workers, their families and our whole community," said Vernon Gammon, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 391, which represents the Eden brewery employees.

Cooper echoed the Teamsters' concern about job losses.

Brewery news India: Vijay Mallya may offer his stake in United Breweries to Heineken to achieve settlement with lenders of Kingfisher Airlines
Troubled tycoon Vijay Mallya may offer his shares in United Breweries (UBL) to partner and Dutch beer giant Heineken to generate cash for a possible settlement with lenders of the defunct Kingfisher Airlines, the Times of India reported on March 31.

If the lenders respond positively, the latest development offers Heineken a clear opportunity to gain controlling ownership of UBL, the largest domestic brewer and the last big Indian company which Mallya helms.

Mallya's counsel made an offer before the Supreme Court to pay Rs 4,000 crore to settle with a consortium of banks fighting to recover unpaid loans. The proposal rests heavily on his ability to divest shares in UBL, in which Heineken owns nearly 44% while Mallya's holding is slightly above 32%.

"This offer will be met from two sources — shares in UBL and a residual stake in United Spirits. Mallya will have to offer shares to Heineken as the latter has pre-emptive rights on them," said a source close to Mallya on condition of anonymity.

The Supreme Court, depending on the response from the banks, will have to lift a lower court freeze on Mallya and his Indian investment company UB Holdings selling assets, the source added.

BarleyBarley News Barley

Barley news Russia: Barley export in February 2016 smaller than a year ago
Russia exported 261.7 thousand tonnes of barley in February 2016, which was 36% lower than in February 2015 (410.2 thousand tonnes), UkrAgroConsult reported on March 31.

The pace of barley exports from Russia in the current marketing year is nearly 4% lower than last season.

Since the beginning of 2015/16 MY, barley exports reached 3.599 mln tonnes compared to 3.744 mln tonnes during the same period in season 2014/15.

UkrAgroConsult estimates that the nation’s barley export capacity has been implemented by 86%. The analysts expect 20% exports reduction in the current season in comparison to season 2014/15 due to the decrease of barley production in Russia in 2015.

Barley news Ukraine: Barley sown on 954 thousand ha as of March 31
Ukrainian farmers had sown 1.27 million hectares of early spring grain or 50 percent of the initial area as of March 31, the agriculture ministry said on March 31.

The area included 954,000 hectares of spring barley, 90,000 hectares of wheat and 132,400 hectares of peas, the ministry said in a report.

The ministry said the spring grains, mostly maize and barley, could eventually cover about 7.5 million hectares, including 2.5 million hectares of early spring crops.

Analyst UkrAgroConsult said last month that Ukraine's grain harvest was likely to fall 10 percent to 52.2 million metric tons in 2016 due to a sharp drop in winter wheat output caused by poor weather during sowing.

The wheat harvest is likely to fall to 17.3 million metric tons this year from 24.8 million in 2015, the consultancy said.
