Brewery news South Africa: AB InBev objecting to proposed Heineken takeover of Distell
Anheuser-Busch InBev, the parent company of South African Breweries (SAB), is objecting to a proposed takeover by Dutch giant Heineken of Distell, News24 reported on January 18.

It wants Distell to sell its cider brands like Hunter's or Savanna as part of the deal.

Heineken has offered to sell its cider brand Strongbow to address concerns about competition. Strongbow competes against Distell's Hunter's Dry and Savanna brands, and the Competition Commission found the merged entity will have significant market share, which will "substantially" lessen competition in the cider and flavoured alcoholic beverages markets.

The commission has accepted Heineken's proposal to sell Strongbow and has recommended that the takeover be approved. The Department of Trade Industry and Competition (DTIC) also supports the transaction.

On Wednesday, hearings at the Competition Tribunal into the deal started, and SAB said it plans to oppose the deal. It will give evidence on Thursday.

A spokesperson for SAB said the merger will result in the removal of an effective competitor. The group also has questions about the effectiveness of the sale of Strongbow, and wants Distell to sell one of its other cider brands instead.

During the hearing on Wednesday, advocate Jerome Wilson SC, acting on behalf of Heineken and Distell, ...More info on site

Brewery news Myanmar: ThaiBev reports fire incident at Yangon production facility
ThaiBev, on January 15, reported a fire incident that took place at Grand Royal Group International’s production facility in Yangon, Myanmar.

The group has an indirect 75% stake in Grand Royal Group.

According to ThaiBev, the fire occurred in the afternoon on January 13 and it was “successfully put out” in the early hours of Jan 14. No lives were lost.

The fire happened in the facility’s raw material storage area and was confined to the area. The fire is believed to be an accident although it has been subject to an investigation and assessment.

“Grand Royal Group’s management team is already taking immediate steps to procure replacements of the relevant raw materials in preparation to resume its blending and bottling operations in Yangon within February 2023,” says ThaiBev in its statement.

“The operations in the Mandalay facility remain unaffected. Grand Royal Group does not anticipate any shortage of finished products in the Myanmar market, as Grand Royal Group and its distributors hold sufficient inventory,” it adds.

The incident is not expected to affect ThaiBev materially for the FY2023.

Shares in ThaiBev closed 1 cent lower or 1.4% down at 70.5 cents on January 13.
