Ukrainian beer market 2018
- Better than yesterday
- Performance by value
- Positions of Ukrainian brewers
The beer market dynamics in Russia is approaching zero, yet major brewers are divided into those who developed considerably in 2017 and those who considerably reduced their volumes. For instance, company Efes has managed to substantially extend their sales due to restrained pricing policy and activity in the modern trade. Heineken has also demonstrated an excellent performance promoted by significant increase of advertisement budgets launching a non-alcohol sort of the title brand and unusual activity in the economy market segment. Carlsberg and AB InBev have been focusing on margins and lost a market share of their inexpensive brands. Serious dependence on PET package and mass enthusiasm about Zhigulevskoe have negatively impacted the most of big regional brewers, that have been for the first time pressed by the leaders in the key sales channels, especially in Volga and Central regions. In the small business there has been a noticeable slowdown in appearing of new restaurant breweries, yet the number of craft breweries has been growing rapidly. In 2018, the beer market is likely to grow a little, while the share of AB InBev Efes may decrease due to the integration. ...

Ukraine. Public Joint-Stock Company Slavutich Brewery declares the illegality of the ban of beer retailing after 10 pm in Lviv
The Law of Ukraine "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts regarding Restrictions on Consumption and Sale of Beer and Low-Alcohol Beverages" as of January 21, 2010 (No 1824-VI, Articles 15-2, 15-3) determined a comprehensive list of such restrictions. According to the above document the local administration is unauthorized to put extra restrictions on the sale of beer except for the cases of mass events. Under the current legislation, such regulatory decisions can be made only by the City Council sessions. Whereas in this case the decision was made by the Executive committee of the city council.
Currently, Public Joint-Stock Company Slavutich Brewery has entered an appeal of unlawful actions of the city administration to the prosecutor's office of the city.
We would like to remind you that the similar decision to ban the sale of beer after 10 pm was made by the Ivano-Frankivsk City Council. Later it was appealed by the prosecutor, and on January 1st, 2011, the court decided to cancel the corresponding decision of the Ivano-Frankivsk City Council as illegal.
Natalya Bondarenko, Legislative Director at "Slavutich", Carlsberg Group: "Public Joint-Stock Company Slavutich Brewery is a responsible player in the beer market. Therefore, we fully support the ban of beer sales to non-adults, actively promote moderate consumption and healthy lifestyle. At the same time I want to emphasize that the law applies to everyone, so we strongly oppose its violations both by the market participants and state and local authorities."
