Brewery news North America: Diageo appoints North America CEO to jump-start growth in the US
Diageo PLC has unexpectedly replaced its head of North America as the company’s chief executive tries to jump-start growth in the U.S., the Johnnie Walker maker’s largest market, MSN reported on September 21.

The world’s largest global liquor maker has appointed the former head of Clif Bar, Sally Grimes, to the newly created role of North America CEO. Clif was bought by Mondelez last year in a deal worth at least $2.9 billion, and Grimes stepped down from the snack maker in February.

Heading the North America business is one of the highest-profile and most demanding roles at Diageo. New CEO Debra Crew and her predecessor, the late Ivan Menezes, both previously served as presidents of North America.

Grimes will join the executive board and rank above Diageo’s existing North America president, Claudia Schubert, who will stay on as president and chief operating officer but step down from the executive board next month. Schubert—who previously served as Diageo’s U.S. and Canada spirits head—was named to the executive board and her current position heading North America only last year.

Lately, Diageo has lost market share in U.S. spirits. Last month it reported flat annual sales in North America, saying growth of pricey booze had ...More info on site

Brewery news Jamaica: Heineken introducing Heineken Silver in Jamaica
Beer maker Heineken is introducing the latest addition to its line-up of products in Jamaica, Heineken Silver, the Jamaica Observer reported on September 21.

Dubbed a captivating twist on the classic beer, Heineken Silver will be available throughout Jamaica starting this month, the company said in a press release.

According to the release, Heineken Silver is a unique beer that stands out because of its unique brewing process. Unlike most beers, it is brewed at an ice-cold temperature of -1℃, which gives it a smooth and balanced taste, the company said, adding that the lagering process also helps retain Heineken's signature fruity aroma that is less bitter.

Heineken Brand Manager Amoye Phillpotts-Brown commented on the brand’s newest innovation.

"Heineken is intentional in creating meaningful connections. In the spirit of this, we wanted to create a more accessible taste profile where quality meets innovation. We wanted a beer that would be more inclusive and interesting to young adult consumers, and Heineken Silver is the outcome. This new brew brings a subtle twist on Heineken Original, providing a smoother taste while maintaining its premium status," Phillpotts-Brown said.

Phillpotts-Brown said Heineken has perfected its craft at its 5-Star brewery, where its beer is fermented in horizontal tanks, creating ...More info on site

Brewery news Romania: Ursus Breweries invests in thermal energy system
Romania's Ursus Breweries said on September 22 that it has invested 2 million euro ($2.1 million) in an installation which recovers thermal energy from flue gas at one of its breweries, SeeNews reported.

The installation will reduce the Buzau brewery's natural gas consumption by some 18%, thus lowering the associated carbon dioxide emissions, Ursus Breweries said in a press release.

"Following the investments made so far, Ursus Breweries' carbon emissions have decreased by 50% in 2022 compared to the reference year 2019. We're just getting started: the investment in Buzau was successfully completed in the summer of this year and represents a step forward in reducing carbon dioxide emissions in our factories to zero," said Robert Uzuna, Vice President of Corporate Affairs of Ursus Breweries.

Last month, Ursus Breweries signed a multi-year virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with Austrian green electricity provider Enery.

Bucharest-headquartered Ursus Breweries has been controlled by Asahi Breweries Europe since 20217. The company owns breweries in Timisoara, Buzau, Brasov and a mini-production facility in Cluj-Napoca, according to its website.

Barley news Canada: Any upside potential in feed barley bids to be limited by harvest pressure and large corn deliveries from the US
Seasonal harvest pressure and expectations for large corn deliveries from the United States should limit any upside potential in feed barley bids in Western Canada for the foreseeable future despite this year’s smaller crop, the Canadian Cattlemen reported on September 21.

“We’re getting some better-than-expected yields (in central Alberta), so there is some harvest pressure with guys needing to move grain for bin space,” said grain trader Jay Janzen of CorNine Commodities in Lacombe, Alta.

“It seems like (the market) will grind sideways for a while, and then once the corn hits the market in November… I imagine it will limit the upside on things,” Janzen added.

He noted while farmers are not excited about selling at current prices, they likely won’t have much choice going forward.

Janzen estimated about three million tonnes of corn would be coming up from the U.S. during the marketing year, making up about a third of Canada’s feed demand and offsetting any losses in Canadian production.

Canada grew 7.8 million tonnes of barley in 2023, according to the latest Statistics Canada estimate. That was down by 100,000 tonnes from the August forecast and well below the nearly 10 million tonnes grown the previous year.

Meanwhile, export data from the U.S. ...More info on site
