Brewery news Brazil: Beer prices hike seen as positive by analysts
This week’s news of high prices at Ambev from October onwards was seen as positive by analysts, even more so as more information was revealed about this readjustment, local media reported.

The rise in the prices of Ambev products, which owns the Brahma, Skol and Corona brands, should vary between 5% and 10%, depending on the product and the region. According to the Brazilian Association of Bars and Restaurants (Abrasel), the increase in prices in São Paulo should be greater, around 10%, while the expectation of readjustment in other states is between 6% and 8%.

According to Credit Suisse, the news is positive, supporting the industry’s pricing power to mitigate headwinds for 2022. “Prices vary between channels, brands, packages and regions, noting Ambev’s more flexible approach to its launch,” reinforce the analysts.

Analysts at BBI pointed out that while the company said in its 2021 second quarter earnings conference call that it was considering an October price increase, consensus estimates would not be fully reflecting this price increase.

Levante Ideias de Investimentos also points out that Ambev has been suffering from the high prices of its main inputs, with the company’s cost of goods sold (COGS) per hectolitre in Brazil jumping 18% in the ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Brewers unveiling new products to meet demand for low-alcoholic drinks
Japan's alcoholic beverage makers are unveiling new products to meet the rising demand for low-alcoholic drinks from health-conscious consumers or those drinking more at home due to the pandemic, EconoTimes reported on September 30.

Many of those drinkers aren't satisfied with non-alcoholic drinks.

Asahi Breweries Ltd. released the low-alcohol Asahi Hiball, which is mixed with malt whisky brewed by its subsidiary the Nikka Whisky Distilling Co., and Beery, a beer-like beverage.

The 0.5-percent alcohol version of a highball, which boasts an authentic aroma and flavor, is available in 350-milliliter cans that sell for 195 yen, while a 3-percent alcohol version is priced at 199 yen.

Meanwhile, the Beery targets first-time drinkers and consumers in their 20s and 30s who are shying away from regular beer. It has seen high sales since being released nationwide in June.

Asahi also made the Beery available in small bottles for restaurant operators since September.

Sapporo Breweries Ltd. released the Drafty, a beer-like beverage with an alcohol content of 0.7 percent.

It is brewed from 100-percent malt and crafted to produce a savory malt flavor, the company said.
