Scientific Digest


Wild hops can be found almost everywhere - including Italy. Maybe some wild hops found in Umbria, Italy can help in future breeding to create new hop varieties. For this reason a group of Italian researchers have an inventory of the germplasm for a number of different wild hops.

Brewery news China: Corona becomes China’s No 1 imported beer brand
Mexican beer brand Corona, which is owned by Grupo Modelo, is taking on the international market since its beer brand has become the number one import in China, the Mexico News Today reported on May 15.

Carlos Brito, CEO of AB InBev, parent company of Grupo Modelo says, “The brand continues to grow rapidly in the super premium segment in China where it recently became the number one imported beer brand.”

The brand had a 25.1 percent growth in revenues within Mexico, while outside the country it has seen a 40.3 percent increase.

“The opportunity we see with Corona is that it has a market share of 3 percent or more in only three countries where we have the brand. Chile, Australia and Mexico.

“With the brand that continues to grow at double digits throughout the world, we are still far from reaching its maximum potential,” added Brito.

During the first quarter of 2018, beer volumes increased by 0.5 percent mainly due to the performance in Mexico, Colombia and Argentina, which was counteracted by the US and Brazilian markets.

Revenues increased around 4.7 percent in that quarter, mainly due to the premium category, according to the company’s financial report.

Brewery news Indonesia & South Korea: Indonesia’s PT Multi Bintang starts exports of its flagship beer to South Korea
Indonesian alcoholic beverage producer PT Multi Bintang Indonesia has officially exported its most renowned beer Bintang to South Korea, Tempo.co reported on May 15.

Multi Bintang Indonesia President Director Michael Chin revealed that the company has prioritized the South Korean market this year in hope of having its brand accepted by the Korean society despite not specifically mentioning the company's export target and volume.

“We believe that the demand can grow in South Korea, however, we cannot reveal the export value since it is a sensitive subject,” said Michael at the company’s factory in Tangerang, Banten, on May 14.

Furthermore, Multi Bintang Indonesia has started to export its product after it was able to meet the quality standards requested by the South Korean importer. This deal was made possible thanks to the partnership between Multi Bintang and South Korean Heineken.

However, the export volume is still in its early stage which represents 5 percent of the company’s total production that adds up to 2 million hectolitres or 200 million litres.

Other than South Korea, Bintang was also exported to several other countries in 2017 such as Japan, Singapore, Timor Leste, Australia, the Netherlands, and England.

Brewery news South Africa: Budweiser beer is now brewed in South Africa
Budweiser, one of the world’s most iconic beers, is now being brewed in South Africa at SAB’s Rosslyn Brewery, outside of Pretoria, the Media Update reported on May 14.

"We are tremendously excited that South Africans are now able to enjoy this beer. A true global icon, and one of the most valuable beer brands in the world, Budweiser is distributed in 73 countries, including South Africa," says Alastair Hewitt, brand director for Budweiser at SAB and AB InBev Africa.

Hewitt adds, "Budweiser is a brand that's full of energy, and it thrives in the world’s great cities. It is a brand that stands out in the crowd and embodies the ambition and contagious energy of cosmopolitan locations and people across the planet."

"Whether it be the energy ignited at a music festival or through the excitement of sporting events, Budweiser champions our dream to bring people together for a better world," says Hewitt.

According to SAB and AB InBev, the arrival of Budweiser in South Africa could not come at a better time, as the brand takes up its 32nd year as the official beer of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

"As a company, our dream is to bring people together for a better ...More info on site

Brewery news India: Regulator Sebi closes proceedings against 3 companies of Vijay Mallya’s
Indian regulator Sebi has closed its adjudication proceedings against three group firms of defaulter businessman Vijay Mallya for alleged disclosure lapses in a 17-year-old case citing liquidation of a holding company, but did not rule out any penal action at a later date, Livemint reported on May 16.

Sebi said it had observed certain non-compliances by three UB group companies while examining the letter of offer made by Zuari Fertilizers and Chemicals Ltd, along with other entities including United Breweries (Holdings) Ltd, Kingfisher Finvest India Ltd and McDowell Holdings Ltd to acquire shares of Mangalore Chemicals and Fertilizers Ltd (MCFL).

MCFL had seen a fierce takeover battle in 2015 between Pune-based Deepak Fertilisers and Kolkata-based Zuari group which had support of Mallya-led promoters. However, the present case relates to a transaction in January 2001 when promoter—United Breweries (Holding) Ltd—had acquired 2 crore shares representing 16.88% of MCFL pursuant to the allotment made under the Board of Industrial and Financial Reconstruction Rehabilitation Scheme.

The acquisition was exempted from open offer obligations, but no disclosure was made by the UB group firms, all of whom were promoters and UB Group firms at that time, as required under Sebi’s takeover regulations.

Sebi had initiated adjudication proceedings in ...More info on site

Barley news Australia: GrainCorp warns about challenging weather conditions in Australia’s east
Crop handler GrainCorp Ltd. has warned about challenging conditions in Australia’s east as grain farmers across the nation wait for rain, with most winter crops planted in dry soil, Bloomberg reported on May 11.

“We are still quite a way from having any predictable levels of what the crop size would be,” for the upcoming season, GrainCorp’s Chief Executive Officer Mark Palmquist said on a call with media and analysts on May 11. “It really does depend on what moisture profile we get over the next month.”

Parts of Victoria and New South Wales had the driest April on record while southern Australia as a whole had its third-lowest amount of rainfall for the month, according to the Bureau of Meteorology. Southwest Australia and parts of western Victoria have an increased chance of a drier than average May to July, it said.

“It may be a dry start to the season, however it is still early days,” Rabobank International said in a report released on Friday. “Substantial season opening rains in mid-through to late May would put the season mostly back on track.”

The dry conditions in Western Australia have forced growers to substitute barley for canola, the Grain Industry Association of Western Australia ...More info on site
