Brewery news Australia: Coopers Brewery sees profit decline on intensifying competition, higher barley and energy costs
Intensifying competition in a crowded beer market, combined with higher barley and energy costs have sliced into the profit of Australia's biggest independent beermaker, Coopers Brewery, The Sydney Morning Herald reported on November 8.

A 2 per cent increase in beer sales was not enough to compensate for the challenges, with the brewer recording a 31.4 per cent fall in its 2018-19 net profit to A$16.4 million. Coopers' pre-tax profit fell 32.7 per cent to A$23.1 million.

"The reduced profit was attributable to a changing sales mix, higher barley prices and more competitive market conditions with some segments showing declines in retail pricing," said Coopers managing director and chief brewer Tim Cooper.

"The latter renders difficult our ability to recover higher excise duties and costs arising from the imposition of container deposit schemes," he said.

Container deposit schemes cost Coopers about A$3 per carton of beer, but stiff competition in the Australian beer market makes it challenging for the beermaker to fully recover those costs from consumers.

Drought, which has hit the nation's barley production, has pushed up the price of the key beermaking ingredient, with Coopers' barley costs rising by about A$600,000 in 2018-19. Coopers' energy costs rose by about A$1 million in 2018-19, ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Brewers continuing to lobby for government’s greater role in aluminum pricing
Brewers and producers of soda and other canned drinks are continuing to lobby this fall for the U.S. government to take a greater role in aluminum pricing, as a key benchmark for that metal hasn’t dropped much from last year’s tariffs-induced high, MarketWatch reported on November 7.

The Beer Institute, a trade association for American brewers, last week cheered a House panel’s call for a Government Accountability Office study of aluminum markets, adding that Congress should also pass a bill known as the Aluminum Pricing Examination Act.

The APEX Act, re-introduced in the House and Senate earlier this year, aims to give “exclusive jurisdiction over the setting of reference prices for aluminum premiums” to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Beverage companies are especially bent out of shape over S&P Global’s Midwest Premium, a key benchmark for aluminum prices that determines the cost of cans.

The heads of the Beer Institute and American Beverage Association blasted the Midwest Premium in a Washington Examiner op-ed last month, saying it’s a “complicated, obscure pricing system.” Suppliers “charge the Midwest Premium, a price which reflects the full tariffed price of aluminum, even on aluminum not subject to the tariff,” they wrote.

Following the Midwest Premium’s climb in March ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Heineken ditching plastic rings and shrink wrap for more eco-friendly packaging
Heineken is ditching its traditional plastic rings and shrink wrap for more eco-friendly packaging. The “toppers” will instead be made from recyclable cardboard, NowThis reported on November 8. The company announced its plan for the toppers on November 7, saying that they are sustainably-sourced and “100% recyclable and compostable.” It has invested £22 million in technology and production facilities at its U.K. sites that will implement the new changes for their products.

They plan to roll out the new toppers on Heineken, Fosters, and Kronenbourg 1664 multi-packs by April 2020, and have them on all of their brands’ multi-packs by the end of 2021. Getting rid of the shrink wrapping will help the company get rid of 517 tons of plastic per year. The single-use plastic rings, also called hi-cones or yokes, have become synonymous with pollution and plastic waste. And with more studies being released about plastic’s devastating effects on the environment and wildlife, many companies are trying to curb their usage. “The effect single-use plastic is having on our planet can’t be ignored,” Heineken U.K.‘s marketing director Cindy Tervoort, said in a statement. “Creating an eco-friendly solution that eliminates plastic while still meeting consumer demand has never been ...More info on site

Brewery news Vietnam: Craft beer conquering Saigon’s upscale F&B outlets
A year ago, BeverageDaily took a look at the beer category in Vietnam and marvelled at how the craft scene there had been developing. Today, it’s impossible to miss craft beer’s impact on bars and restaurants.

A year ago the craft beer scene was young, it was vibrant, and it was giving artisanal brewing in neighbouring countries a kicking. Just three years after the first craft brewers launched their first commercial beers, there were upwards of 20 brands powering up Saigon’s segment.

“Craft brewing is still a long way from maturity. As is the case in most other places, quality and consistency tend to be an issue, especially as the scene was born largely from hobbyists,” BeverageDaily.com wrote at the time.

It’s incredible what difference a year makes—even if just 365 days is equivalent to 25% of the time Saigon’s craft scene has been active.

Returning this year, and loping through the streets of District 1, which is populated mostly by well-heeled Vietnamese and foreign tourists, it is impossible to miss craft beer’s impact on bars and restaurants.

Just about every upscale F&B outlet now displays signage trumpeting the range of brews found inside. Sometimes whole facades are lost to massive awnings persuading craft ...More info on site

Barley news EU: Heavy rains delay grain sowings in parts of EU
Heavy rains have delayed grain sowings in parts of the European Union with the situation particularly severe in Britain where they could trigger a significant shift to spring planted crops, Reuters reported on November 8.

The rains have also disrupted the harvesting of maize and sugar beet, adding to the challenge faced by farmers who are trying to get winter crops planted.

"Overall it is estimated that wheat plantings are just about 40-50% complete in the UK. We still have a bit of time but the weather forecast is far from ideal," said Ben Bodart, Director at CRM AgriCommodities.

Bodart noted the last time that Britain had significant planting issues was for the 2013/14 campaign when the final wheat area fell by nearly 19%.

UK wheat futures on ICE have been rising sharply for 2020/21 crop positions with the Nov. 2020 contract climbing to a peak of 160.00 pounds a tonne on November 7, up 10% from a month earlier.

"Some farmers are already considering rolling their 2019 harvest over to sell it next season," Bodart said.

In France, winter barley is most at risk of losing area because of its earlier planting period compared with wheat. However, the main threat from rain was to the ...More info on site
