Brewery news South Korea: Non-alcoholic beer market growing at blistering pace since outbreak of Covid
Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, South Korea’s non-alcoholic beer market has been growing at a blistering pace thanks to an increase in the number of health-conscious consumers and the growth of the drinking-at-home culture, the Korea BizWire reported on January 18.

Hite Jinro Co., the country’s second-largest beverage company, had been selling between 6 and 7 million cans of its non-alcoholic beer ‘Hite Zero 0.00’ since it was released in 2012.

Annual sales, however, surpassed the 10 million can mark in 2020 and more than doubled last year.

The size of the nation’s non-alcoholic beer market stood at about 20 billion won (US$16.8 million), equivalent to less than 1 percent of the size of the nation’s overall beer market.

Nonetheless, non-alcoholic beer has a strong growth rate.

Sales of non-alcoholic beer at major convenience store chains such as GS25, CU and 7-Eleven grew by 814 percent, 460 percent and 501 percent, respectively, last year compared to a year before.

According to the Korea Customs Service, the nation’s imports of non-alcoholic beers amounted to US$7.58 million last year, a more than twofold increase from $2.93 million a year ago and a more than fivefold jump compared to the 2019 figure.

Industry experts said that the primary factor ...More info on site

Brewery news Lithuania & Taiwan: Lithuania’s oldest beer brewer exploring the Taiwanese market
Lithuania’s oldest beer brewer is exploring the Taiwanese market in the wake of a naming row over a newly opened Taiwanese representative office in Vilnius that led to a ban on products from the Baltic state in China, The Taipei Times reported on January 18.

During an interview earlier this month, Volfas Engelman chief executive officer Marius Horbacauskas said that his company had entered the Taiwan market in the middle of 2020, and while sales were poor for the first year, with only 8,000 litres sold, there was a boom last year, with beer exports to Taiwan increasing 23-fold.

Horbacauskas said he is thrilled that Taiwanese like his company’s products.

“For us, it is a very big motivation,” he said.

The skyrocketing sales might have something to do with a campaign launched by Taipei to support Lithuanian products, which have been boycotted in China.

Ties between Vilnius and Beijing soured after Lithuania in November last year allowed Taiwan to open an overseas representative office that included the word “Taiwanese” in its name.

Beijing has sought to impose a political cost on Lithuania for allowing the office to use the name.

Recent measures have included recalling its ambassador to Lithuania, downgrading diplomatic relations, expelling the Lithuanian ambassador to ...More info on site

Brewery news South Africa: South African Breweries announce appointment of new CEO
The South African Breweries (SAB) has announced the appointment of Richard Rivett-Carnac as its new CEO. Rivett-Carnac says he is committed to working with Government, suppliers and all stakeholders to responsibly grow the beer category and SAB’s share of the category, IOL reported on January 19.

The new chief executive holds a Bachelor of Business Science degree from the University of Cape Town. He is also a member of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants. He has 13 years of experience in various roles within the AB InBev group.

He joined SABMiller in the London office as part of the mergers and acquisitions team in 2009, and more recently was the VP for Finance, Legal & Corporate Affairs for AB InBev’s Africa Zone, successfully navigating the business through what could be considered the most challenging years since its inception.

“After the last few years, we have learned just how strong SAB can be, as an organisation and as a collection of hard-working, passionate and talented people.

“Having grown up in South Africa, this business has been an integral part of my life, and I could not be prouder to lead the team into an exciting new future for SAB and the South African ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Beer fans seeking low and no alcohol UK brands along with more flexible beer subscription services
Beer fans are seeking low and no alcohol beers made in the UK along with more flexible subscription services, according to craft beer retailer HonestBrew.

Speaking to The Drinks Business, HonestBrew CEO Michael Alcock said: “In January of the last few years, we’ve seen the popularity of our Low & No range grow. From a 10 times increase between 2019 and 2020 to close to double the amount of sales from this category in the January of 2021, it’s fair to say that more and more customers have been seeking out these beers each Dry January.”

Alcock revealed that “the advancements in brewing low and no alcohol beers means that a broad range of flavours can be created, just as with full-strength beers. Craft brewers have mastered a range of techniques, from perfecting water chemistry, to using grains that provide more body — like oats — and focusing on aroma hops at cold temperatures so that the hops don’t impart any unwanted bitterness. This means they can accurately recreate the flavours of full-strength beers.”

He pointed out that “previously, there was a limited choice of weak and watery versions of premium lagers, now you can enjoy styles like stout, IPA and pale ...More info on site

Barley news Canada & France: France’s Rouen port set to ship its first-ever barley cargo for Canada
Canada, one of the world’s top barley exporters, is importing a rare cargo from Europe after drought decimated its harvest last year, Bloomberg reported on January 18.

France’s Rouen port is set to load its first-ever barley cargo for Canada, on the bulk carrier Federal Spey, according to a spokesman for the port operator. The North American nation hasn’t imported significant volumes from the European Union since the 2015-16 season, trade data show.

Canada is typically largely self-sufficient in barley and ranked as the fifth-biggest exporter in the 2020-21 season, U.S. Department of Agriculture data show. But its output shrank by a third last year to the smallest since the 1960s as heat and dryness plagued its prairies. The drought has also shifted trade flows for other grains such as corn.

For barley, the poor harvest has added to a global supply crunch for the grain used in brewing and animal feed, with stockpiles set to reach an almost four-decade low, according to the USDA. Beer makers have also faced rising aluminum costs and labor and transport bottlenecks, spurring price hikes for the beverage.
