Brewery news Cameroon: Castel Group’s Cameroon brewery reports 17% net income increase
Brewing company SABC, local arm of Castel Group, reported a net result of XAF25.67 billion for the 2018 financial year, an improvement by 17% compared to the XAf21.93 billion the previous year, Business in Cameroon said on May 21.

According to the company, this figure represents 7.4% of turnover against 6.5% of 2017. Pre-tax turnover in FY2018 was XAF345.6 billion, up 3.2% compared to FY2017.

SABC says achieving these strong performances required an investment of XAF22,583 billion in 2018 against XAF23,969 billion in 2017.

Investments in 2018 mainly reinforced the company’s logistical and industrial capacities through the acquisition of a PET (polyethylene terephthalate) line in Koumassi which was commissioned in April 2018; the transformation of the soft drinks line into a mixed line in Garoua; the creation of a packaging unit and a Modern Trade store in the Yaoundé mall etc.

Brewery news Nigeria: AB InBev expects investments in Nigeria brewery to reach $400 mln
Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev), the world’s largest beer maker, expects the total investment in its new brewery at Sagamu in Nigeria, to be up to $400 million, Chief Executive Carlos Brito was quoted as saying by Reuters on May 22.

The $250 million brewery has already started operation and capacity will be expanded in phases, Brito told reporters at a media briefing in Johannesburg, without giving a timeline for the next phase.

“Nigeria (is) becoming a more and more important market as we grow in that market,” he said.

“I mean we’re growing double digits, we didn’t grow in the past as fast because we were lacking capacity and now that we have capacity, strong brands and (a) great group of people we’re challenging the status quo there.”

Brewery news South Korea: Hite Jinro struggling to meet demand for its newest beer Terra
Hite Jinro’s new beer Terra is flying off the shelves, the Korea JoongAng Daily reported on May 18.

It’s been less than two months since Terra was first released on March 21, but the company is already struggling to meet demand.

One of the reasons Hite Jinro is failing to brew as much beer as needed is because the delivery of some ingredients has been delayed. The company said it expects the situation to normalize next week.

In the first 50 days after the beer - which uses barley grown in a clean and unpolluted environment - was released, 1.3 million boxes were sold. That’s the equivalent to 39 million 300-milliliter bottles (10.1 fluid ounces) and the most beer of a single brand that has ever been sold in 50 days.

According to Hite Jinro, as of April 29, it had sold 1.05 million boxes, also setting another record of selling more than one million boxes in the shortest period. That’s same as selling 9.4 bottles every second.

Other Hite Jinro’s beer brands, such as Hite, Max and Dry Finish, were able to sell 200,000 to 300,000 boxes in a month. To meet the growing demand, Hite Jinro had to more than double ...More info on site

Brewery news Finland: High taxes make beer lovers shop abroad
Higher taxes on beer in Finland have once again spurred consumers to bring in more from Estonia, the Federation of the Brewing and Soft Drinks Industry (Panimoliitto) said on May 20.

Last year people returning from Finland's southern neighbour, Estonia, brought back significantly less beer after the Baltic country raised its alcohol taxes.

But since Finland hiked its taxes on beer at the beginning of this year, the trend has again reversed with imports rising in the February-through-April period, according to a study carried out by the Research and Analysis Center (TAK) for the industry group.

The drinks federation says it is worried by this development.

"The tax hike can be seen in the import figures for the early part of the year in a clear, unfortunate manner. This should not be the goal of a single Finnish legislator. We are losing; specifically in tax revenue to the state and in Finnish employment as well as the livelihood of a primary production industry, says the head of the drinks industry lobby, former MEP Riikka Pakarinen.

In the February-through-April period, the amount of beer brought back from visits to Estonia jumped by some 40 percent compared to a year earlier. Personal imports of cider and pre-mixed ...More info on site

Brewery news Canada: Canadian using more pot, drinking less beer, survey shows
Pot use in Canada is about twice what was previously reported, according to a surprising survey published on May 20 by Cowen and Co.

Canadian pot producers such as Aurora Cannabis have achieved disappointing sales since that country legalized recreational sales to adults in October 2018. So the cannabis bulls at Cowen decided to do a channel check, by surveying some 1,800 Canadians on their use of cannabis and alcohol. The survey found more Canadians than ever use pot, especially edible products. They’re also drinking less beer.

Canada’s illegal pot market must be bigger than expected, Cowen analysts conclude. And that makes the research firm more optimistic about the long-run market that’s available to the country’s licensed producers, once the legal industry gets past early problems with production and distribution.

In previous surveys conducted by the Canadian government, fewer than 15% of consumers acknowledged having used cannabis in the past month. Cowen found that 40% of those it surveyed in Ontario and Alberta reported pot use in the past month. About 75% said they’d used it sometime in their lives, compared with less than 60% in previous government surveys.

“The growth is not entirely surprising,” writes Cowen analyst Vivien Azer and her colleagues, because ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Barley supply down 4% in 2018-19, expected to increase next year
For 2018-19, Canadian barley supply decreased by 4% from 2017-18 to 9.7 million tonnes, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada reported on May 17.

Exports are forecast to increase by 5% to almost 3.0 mln tonnes, the analysts said.

Total domestic use is expected to decrease mainly on less feed use, waste and dockage.

Carry-out stocks are forecast to drop by 28% to 0.9 mln tonnes, which is 44% lower than the past five year average.

World barley production for 2018-19 is estimated at the lowest level in six years, according to USDA. Carry-out stocks will be historically low, including a steep decline in major exporters. Due to lower imports by China and Saudi Arabia, world trade is expected to decrease. Amid tight supplies, world prices for feed barley have been very strong, compared to corn prices. Combined with abundant supplies of corn worldwide, the demand for corn has displaced barley in some countries.

As a result of lower supplies and strong demand, the feed barley price at Lethbridge is forecast at C$255/t, about 12% higher than last year. The average Prairie malt price is 17-24% higher than last year, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada said.

For 2019-20, area seeded to barley in Canada ...More info on site
