Russia: Positions of Brewing Companies

The review contains an analysis of interim performance of brewers in the first half of 2019. There are rather dynamic changes behind a modest industry growth. Baltika is again experiencing a stage of volumes and market share slid due to competition with AB InBev Efes. Because of the price competition and presence expansion in the modern trade company #2. has come close to the leading position. At the same time sales of Heineken Russia have continued growing which makes the premium part of the portfolio heavier. The market premiumization trend had been also confirmed by import brands. MBC and Zavod Trekhsosenskiy have been the most successful among federal market players. The market share of independent regional brewers and Ochakovo have continued falling as they are being squeezed out by the market leaders at their competitive fields.

Ukrainian beer market 2019: companies and brands

In 2019 beer production and market have been still fluctuating about zero point. However, the past season was successful for brewers judging by the sales profitability. The price mix has improved due to rapid general market premiumization, as well as its particular aspect, the growth of import beer sales. By the season end AB InBev Efes improved its positions considerably. It turned out that consumers had not forgot Efes brands that had to leave the market, but started to recover rapidly. Against the stagnating market that meant sales decline of other companies, in the first place Carlsberg Group that most of all beneficiated from Efes exiting the market. PPB turned out to be stable to branding activity of its competitor and Obolon kept the same volumes and at the moment it is the absolute leader of the economy segment. The share growth of independent producers took place thanks to leading craft breweries, that so far do not have a big market weight, but they are rapidly gaining it.

Brewing industry in Kazakhstan 2019

During the first half of 2019, the majority of Kazakh brewers made their contribution into positive dynamics. Yet it was companies of the lower division, not the two transnational leaders that raised their production and sales. The shares of draft beer and aluminum can which is rapidly squeezing glass bottle out of the market, have been growing. The price segmentation has remained stable despite the substantial rise of retail prices and fluctuations of brand market shares, while the borders between segments have become blurred. The main events in the industry have been: the announced revision of the beer excise policy, launch of BeerKhan brand in the strong beer segment, and most important – purchasing assets of Shymkentbeer by Arasan.

Australia: GrainCorp reports limited supply of malting barley in most regions

GrainCorp on Thursday advised that it had released the company’s harvest report for the 2010/11 harvest. The wetter than normal harvest conditions, particularly compared to 2009/10, affected grain quality in a number of ways: Levels of screenings were generally lower; Grain size was larger; Test weights were lower; and Moisture content of grain received was higher, GrainCorp said.

Barley quality

The ratio of malting to feed barley was low, resulting in a limited supply of malting barley in most regions. Barley protein levels were down compared to 2009/10, and moisture was higher.

Wheat quality

The analysis of milling wheat quality indicates that protein levels were similar to last season, and Falling Number values, while lower than the previous season, indicated that APH, AH, APW, and ASW grades are all sound and suitable for all relevant milling and baking applications.

Feed grades accounted for approximately 50% of the eastern Australian wheat crop delivered into the GrainCorp storage network. The quality tests conducted on feed wheat indicate that metabolisable energy yields for both cattle and sheep are within the normal range, and represent excellent value for stockfeed manufacture.

Importantly, considering the prevailing harvest conditions and the presence of elevated levels of ‘white grain’ in many regions, Mycotoxin and Aflatoxin levels were below the limits of detection for the relevant tests.

Canola quality

Canola moisture levels were higher than the previous season, and test weights were lower. Protein levels were average, and seed size was large.

(The report contains technical data describing the quality of wheat, barley, and canola harvested in eastern Australia and received into the GrainCorp storage network.)

GrainCorp’s core business is the receival and storage of grain, as well as related commodities. It also provides logistics and markets these commodities.
