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. ...

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