BreweryBrewery News Brewery

Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands’ Q3 results surpass analysts’ expectations
Constellation Brands on January 7 reported fiscal third-quarter profit of $1.28 billion.

The Victor, New York-based company, whose Chicago-based beer division imports Corona and Modela beers, said it had profit of $6.55 per share. Earnings, adjusted for nonrecurring gains, came to $3.09 per share.

The results surpassed Wall Street expectations. The average estimate of five analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was for earnings of $2.41 per share.

The wine, liquor and beer company posted revenue of $2.64 billion in the period. Its adjusted revenue was $2.44 billion, also topping Street forecasts. Four analysts surveyed by Zacks expected $2.27 billion.

Constellation Brands expects full-year earnings in the range of $9.80 to $10.05 per share.

Constellation Brands shares have risen 2% since the beginning of the year, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 index has increased 16%. The stock has climbed 17% in the last 12 months.

Brewery news Japan & Myanmar: Kirin’s audit of Myanmar brewing partner inconclusive due to lack of information
Japanese beverage maker Kirin Holdings on January 6 announced that its audit of the financial and governance structures of its business partner in Myanmar failed to produce results due to a lack of information from its counterpart, the Nikkei Asia reported.

Kirin commissioned Deloitte Tohmatsu Financial Advisory to conduct an independent assessment of its partner, Myanma Economic Holdings, in June. "Unfortunately, the assessment was inconclusive as a result of Deloitte being unable to access sufficient information required to make a definitive determination," Kirin said in a statement.

MEHL is one of two big military-linked conglomerates in the Southeast Asian country, along with Myanmar Economic Corporation. It operates a wide range of businesses, ranging from finance, to agriculture, to mining. Kirin has two joint-venture companies with MEHL, Myanmar Brewery and Mandalay Brewery, holding a 51% stake in each.

MEHL has close ties to the military, which has been accused of massacring Muslim minority Rohingyas and destroying their villages. Critics say MEHL offers a conduit for finance that bypasses formal civilian government channels. The purpose of Kirin's assessment was to determine where proceeds from the joint-venture businesses end up.

A U.N. fact-finding mission published a report in 2019 listing dozens of foreign companies linked to the ...More info on site

Brewery news South Africa: South African Breweries to challenge government-imposing ban on alcohol sales in court
South African Breweries (SAB) has said it will challenge the constitutionality of the government-imposed alcohol sales ban in court, The Drinks Business reported on January 7.

In a statement, the company said it shares the South African government’s concerns over the surge in Covid cases and welcomes all lawful measures in order to control the spread of the virus.

However SAB said it “strongly disagreed” with the imposition of a domestic alcohol sales ban, and after “much consideration”, it has decided to approach the courts.

“SAB has decided to approach the courts to challenge the constitutionality of the decision taken and process followed by the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) to re-ban the sale of alcohol,” the brewer said. “The legal action is the last resort available to SAB to protect our employees, suppliers, customers, and all the livelihoods we support.”

“SAB believes any ban, including the current one, goes far beyond what is reasonable and necessary to contain the spread of the virus and unlawfully restricts various rights that are enshrined and protected by our constitution,” the brewer added. “These include the right to freedom of trade, the right to human dignity, privacy, and the right to bodily and psychological integrity.”

Brewery news UK: Alcohol sales soar at UK supermarkets over Christmas
The alcoholic drinks category led the charge as UK supermarkets enjoyed their strongest ever Christmas trading period, according to Nielsen till scan data.

Brits spent a record-breaking £12 billion in the grocery channel during the four weeks to December 26, and Nielsen said beer, wine and spirits was the fastest growing category overall.

Champagne sales increased 18%, crémant sales were up 51% and there were also strong gains for spirits: tequila grew 59%, flavoured vodka increased 50% and spiced rum continued its upward march by increasing 47%.

Online accounted for 12.5% of sales, double the proportion it achieved during Christmas 2019, while the average basket spend also reached record highs.

On-trade venues across the majority of the country were closed due to a sharp uptick in Covid-19 cases, so Brits stocked up in the off-trade instead.

In terms of retailer performance over the 12 weeks to Boxing Day, Lidl led the growth by increasing sales 20.9% year-on-year, followed by Morrisons at 9.2%.

Morrisons also hailed Champagne as an in-demand category, with sales increasing 64% year-on-year.

Mike Watkins, Nielsen’s UK head of retailer and business insight, said: “2020 marks the first Christmas where online shopping played a significant role in consumers’ shopping behaviours, with 85% of the incremental ...More info on site

BarleyBarley News Barley

Barley news France: December barley exports the lowest since 2009/10 season
French soft wheat shipments outside the European Union in December fell from a season's high the previous month as exports to China eased, an initial estimate based on Refinitiv data showed.

Soft wheat exports to destinations outside the EU totalled 797,000 tonnes in December, the sixth month of the 2020/21 season, the Refinitiv loading data showed.

That was below the 877,000 tonnes recorded in November, although December's total was still the second-largest so far this season.

China was the largest importer of French soft wheat outside the EU for a third straight month in December, accounting for 271,300 tonnes.

Including feed barley and malting barley, a total of 400,900 tonnes of grains was shipped to China from France last month, the lowest volume since September.

Algeria was the second-largest destination for French soft wheat in November with 213,300 tonnes shipped. Exports to Algeria, usually France's main overseas wheat market, continued to rebound after minimal volumes in October and September.

December's soft wheat exports also showed a downturn in flows to other countries outside the EU. Pakistan was the third-largest single-country destination with 66,000 tonnes.

Farm office FranceAgriMer last month raised its 2020/21 forecast for French soft wheat exports outside the EU for the third month in a ...More info on site

WhiskyWhisky News Whisky

Whisky news UK: High-end whisky exporters worried about post-Brexit trading rules
High-end whisky exporters fear post-Brexit trading rules could lead to aged malts being blocked from sale on the continent, the Press and Journal reported on January 8.

Britain’s exit from the EU means exporters will have to obey complex “rules of origin” laws if they want to continue to sell products in Europe.

The rules require a breakdown of where a product and its component parts originate from.

If exporters can prove more than 50% of their product is made or manufactured in the UK, they will enjoy the benefits of the free trade agreement negotiated by Boris Johnson – if not, they will be forced to pay tariffs.

A senior manger at one Scotch whisky firm told us he feared it could create problems for the sale of 50-year-old malts, as breakdowns of where the malt barley or grain came from to produce the whisky no longer exist.

He said: “Up to now it has been easy to export to Europe as the amount of documentation was minimal, but we will now have to deal with more customs declarations and shipping regulations, but the real complexity will come with the implementation of Rules of Origin Certification, and what standards and requirements will be involved.
