Brewery news Zimbabwe: Delta Corporation lines up several capacity expansion initiatives
Beverages maker, Delta Corporation, has lined up several capacity expansion initiatives for financial year 2023 as it seeks to meet consumer demand, especially for its sorghum beer segment, The Herald reported on January 24.

The group is angling for growth opportunities in the economy, which local government has projected to grow by 3.8 percent driven by increased activity in the mining and agriculture sectors.

Delta indicated one of the planned initiatives entails bringing back the sorghum beer Scud pack to narrow supply gaps in the segment.

Company secretary Faith Musinga said the installation of the new Chibuku plant at the group’s Harare brewery will also enable the group to increase supply for its recently launched Chibuku Super banana flavour.

“The capital investment projects are progressing according to plan and expected to contribute to business performance in the coming financial period,” Ms Musinga said in a trading update released by the company.

“Banana flavour, which was launched in June 2022, has excited the market, and will see an increased supply once packaging capacity and supply chain bottlenecks are addressed.

“The installation of additional production capacity at Harare brewery is in progress for commissioning during the first half of 2023.

“There are ongoing efforts to optimise the available ...More info on site

Barley news France: Farm office raises soft wheat exports, barley and maize ending stocks forecasts for 2022-23
The forecast for 2022-23 soft wheat exports from France outside the European Union has continued to climb to 10.6 million tonnes, 21% more than last year, on strong demand from North Africa, Reuters reported, citing farm office FranceAgriMer.

France, the EU’s biggest producer of wheat, in December had been expected to ship 10.3 million tonnes of the grain, which had been an increase of 300,000 tonnes from the previous month, according to FranceAgriMer.

“What is clear is that demand is still significant from the Maghreb, particularly Morocco,” Paul Le Bideau, deputy head of FranceAgriMer’s grains unit, told reporters.

The competitiveness of French wheat in North African markets had been helped by rising insurance costs for shipping supplies from Russia, the world’s biggest wheat exporter, Le Bideau noted.

Market participants consulted by FranceAgriMer had estimates for French non-EU soft wheat exports ranging between 10 million and 11 million tonnes, he said, adding there was still much uncertainty over the impact of Russia’s ongoing war in Ukraine.

FranceAgriMer trimmed its outlook for soft wheat exports within the EU to 6.64 million tonnes from 6.73 million. It reduced its projection of French soft wheat stocks at the end of the 2022-23 season on June 30 to 2.33 million ...More info on site

Barley news China & France: China buys at least several large vessels of French barley this month
Chinese buyers are thought to have booked at least several large vessels of French barley this month, swelling a French export programme as merchants ship out a previous round of sales from late last year, Reuters reported on January 23, citing European traders.

China has become a major export market for French barley in recent years. As one of the few European barley origins approved for import by Beijing, France has attracted extra demand during a trade dispute between China and Australia.

In the latest deals, Chinese importers bought five to six panamax cargoes of some 60,000 tonnes each for shipment in the coming months, three traders said.

There was also market talk that the volume may have reached 10-15 vessels, or as much as 900,000 tonnes.

The latest sales were believed to have taken place in the past three weeks and were for crop from the 2022 harvest to be shipped in first half of 2023, mostly between January and March/April, traders said.

The barley was thought to have been sold for livestock feed rather than malt production.

Further sales were not expected immediately, though, after a sharp rise in French barley premiums following this month's deals and with the Lunar New Year holidays starting ...More info on site

Whisky news UK: The Scotch Malt Whisky Society announces new boss, says revenue likely exceeded expectations in 2022
The managing director of the company that owns The Scotch Malt Whisky Society has stepped down with immediate effect, as the business declared it was likely to have exceeded revenue expectations for 2022 and confident of further progress this year, The Herald reported on January 24.

David Ridley leaves the Artisanal Spirits Company having steered it through its stock market flotation in 2021, and following a year of membership and revenue growth.

Mr Ridley, who departs after six years with the firm, oversaw the development of a new supply-chain facility in Uddingston, which became operational in the fourth quarter of last year, the launch of the JG Thomson & Co spirits brand, and the establishment of the Society’s inaugural franchise agreement in South Korea. FJ Korea distributes products to more than 2,000 bars in the country. Last year also saw Artisanal form a partnership with Drinks Alliance in Malaysia.

Andrew Dane, who joined in 2020, has stepped up from his role as finance director to become Artisanal’s first chief executive. Billy McCarter, formerly group financial controller, has been appointed interim finance director while the search for a long-term chief financial officer takes place.

The changes were announced as Artisanal declared that it expects to ...More info on site
