Brewery news China: AB InBev gearing for major push in China
The world's top brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev is gearing up for a major push into the Chinese market by targeting high-end beer consumers - a demographic also coveted by its biggest rival, Heineken, the Nikkei Asian Review reported on May 14.

To bankroll that endeavor, AB InBev will list its Asian business in Hong Kong as soon as this summer, in what could be this year's largest initial public offering in Asia.

Although China's beer sales peaked in 2013 by volume, sales by value surged nearly 40% between that year and 2018, based on provisional numbers. The price per unit jumped thanks to the popularity of premium beer.

For years, Chinese have appreciated cheap beer, favoring the kind sold in 500 millilitre cans for roughly 55 cents. Lately, their tastes have expanded along with their wallets during the country's economic boom that has led to a rise in popularity for imported craft beers, which sell for about $3.

Goose Island Beer, a craft beer under AB InBev’s umbrella, has seen its Shanghai brewhouse grow into a popular hangout for young professionals. "Although the 50 yuan ($7) drinks are a bit on the high end, I'm not too concerned about the price," said a 34-year-old startup ...More info on site

Brewery news Malaysia: Carlsberg Malaysia pledges not to increase prices
Carlsberg Malaysia has pledged not to increase the prices of any of its beers for the rest of this year, as the company prepares for the country’s impending sugar tax this July, FoodNavigator-Asia reported on May .

Carlsberg Malaysia Managing Director Lars Lehmann told FoodNavigator-Asia that: “We do not have any plan to adjust product prices to distributors and retailers this year, after the last adjustment that took effect on April 1st.

“The upcoming sugar tax will only impact our Nutrimalt and Jolly Shandy brands, which is relatively minimal.”

He added that ‘barring any unforeseen regulatory or macroeconomic factors’, any future price adjustments would be ‘kept at a minimum’ to ensure product affordability and competitiveness.

Carlsberg Malaysia had raised its product prices by 3% to 6% earlier this year on April 1, the initial date that the country’s sugar tax was supposed to be enforced before it was postponed by three months to July 1.

Back then, the main reason cited for the price hike was escalating malt and barley prices, which remain chief concerns for the company currently, though it appears that no problems are foreseen with their supply for the rest of 2019.

“We have seen a significant increase in the costs of ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Competition intensifies in Japan’s beer-like beverages segment
Competition has been intensifying again in Japan’s market of “third-segment” beer-like beverages, The Japan News reported on May 17.

Last year, combined shipments of beer and “happoshu” low-malt quasi-beer declined for the 14th straight year, but third-segment beverages with little or no malt content saw their shipments rise 3.7 percent, the first increase in five years.

Popularity of the third-segment drink was reignited by Honkirin, released by Kirin Brewery Co. in March 2018.

More than 10 million cases of Honkirin were sold in the first 10 months since the product hit store shelves. A case contains the equivalent of 20 633-milliliter bottles.

The product mimics the taste and feel of beer, but its 350-milliliter can sells about ¥80 cheaper than authentic beer products of the same size. Honkirin is luring consumers in their 40s and 50s.

Other breweries followed suit with their own new releases of third-segment beverages. In January this year, Asahi Breweries Ltd. launched the Gokujo Kireaji, which performed so well that the maker raised the annual sales target in April from 3 million cases to 4 million.

Suntory Beer Ltd. revamped its flagship Kinmugi series for the first time in 13 years in January. In particular, the Kinmugi Gold Lager, a new product, ...More info on site

Barley news UK: Barley markets under pressure from large stocks and crops
The feed barley market in the UK is following wheat down, suffering from similar issues, including larger new-crop prospects and dulled demand, FarmersWeekly reported on May 15.

In the feed market, there is also sustained competition from good availability of maize.

UK’s barley use in animal feed in the year to the end of March was 1.037 mln tonnes – a drop of 14.4% compared with the previous 12 months and the lowest level for six years.

Wheat use at almost 4.9 mln tonnes was up just 1.6%, while maize use in the same period rose almost 64% to 559,000 tonnes.

UK barley exports have been relatively quiet this season, says AHDB Cereals and Oilseeds. Stronger sterling has pressured prices and there has been strong competition from Black Sea supplies.

New-crop harvest prices are between £110-£118/t ex-farm as available – a discount of up to £11/t off old-crop prices. However, some regions are seeing little, if any, difference between old- and new-crop values.

The Brexit delay until 31 October has stymied new-crop barley export prospects, other than for harvest and immediately post-harvest.

Russia, Ukraine and Canada look like planting more barley, but Chinese demand is uncertain because of African swine fever.

Barley news Ukraine: Barley harvest seen increasing to 7.9 mln tonnes
Favourable weather this winter and spring will allow Ukraine to increase its 2019 wheat harvest to 26.2 million tonnes and its barley harvest to 7.9 million, the APK-Inform consultancy said on May 15.

But the country is likely to cut its corn production to 33.1 million tonnes from a record 35.6 million tonnes in 2018, the consultancy said in a statement.

Ukraine’s overall grain harvest may decrease slightly to 69.3 million tonnes this year from a record 69.8 million last year, it said.
