Brewery news UK: Marston’s reveals plans to cut about 2,150 jobs
Brewery and pub giant Marston's has revealed plans to cut about 2,150 jobs because of the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Insider Media reported on October 15.

The Wolverhampton-headquartered company's chief executive Ralph Findlay said the move was an "inevitable consequence of the limitations placed upon our business".

The news comes in a trading update to the London Stock Exchange for the 53 weeks to 3 October 2020, days after its £780 mln joint venture with Carlsberg UK was cleared by the CMA.

The update has revealed that the company's group sales totalled £821m, 30 per cent below the prior year while total pub sales were £515 mln, a 34 per cent drop due to the Covid-19 lockdown and the disposal of 168 pubs for £61 mln in the first half.

Marston's Beer Company's sales were £306 mln, 22 per cent down, but off trade volumes were up 23 per cent.

Findlay said: "This year has been testing on many fronts, predominantly from having to navigate the consequences of Covid-19.

"Trading has been difficult, but to operate at 90 per cent of last year on a like-for-like basis is better than our forecast, ahead of the market and a highly creditable result.

"In part, this ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Heineken fined for breaching UK pubs code
Heineken has been fined £2 mln ($2.5 mln) in the UK for forcing pubs it owned to sell “unreasonable levels of Heineken beers and ciders”, Yahoo Sports reported on October 15.

The Dutch brewing giant was handed the fine on October 15 by the UK’s Pubs Code Adjudicator, an ombudsman set up to oversee the Pubs Code. The adjudicator also released a damning report alongside the judgement, calling Heineken a “repeat offender.”

Heineken rejected the findings and said it was considering appealing against the fine.

The Pubs Code, which came into force in 2016, legislate for how pub owners with more than 500 establishments should treat landlords. Heineken’s fine is the first financial penalty imposed by the Pubs Code Adjudicator.

“The report of my investigation is a game changer,” adjudicator Fiona Dickie said in a statement. “It demonstrates that the regulator can and will act robustly to protect the rights that parliament has given to tied tenants.”

Dickie investigated how Heineken’s pub company subsidiary, Star Pubs and Bars, treated its tenants between 2016 and 2019.

Pubs can be either tied or untied to a brewery. Tied pubs agree to stock a certain amount of a brewery’s beer. Untied pubs — or free houses — can stock ...More info on site

Barley news China: China’s feed needs seen 10% up from last year
China had sold the bulk of its national corn reserves over the past years. The African swine fever destroyed a large part of its pork production. Although the government talks of a good crop, there are other reports of flood damage in the south and storm damage in the north, H. M. Gauger GmbH reported earlier in October.

The nation’s feed needs are seen 10% up from last year. In early September, the USDA estimated the Chinese imports in 2020/21 as follows: 99.0 mln tonnes of soybeans, 7.0 mln tonnes each of wheat and corn, 5 mln tonnes of barley, and 6.1 mln tonnes of sorghum; by now the estimates are considered much too low.

China already bought 10 mln tonnes of corn in the U.S., further U.S. sales of 3.4 mln tonnes to “unknown destinations” will probably go to China as well; total corn purchases for the crop year are seen between 20 and 30 mln tonnes (from the US., Ukraine and South America). Import numbers of wheat, barley and sorghum will be larger as well.
