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.

Miller Brands Miller to move on to Meantime

Nick Miller, managing director of Miller Brands UK, is to leave the company in September to become chief executive of London brewery Meantime.

Miller joined Miller Brands UK, the UK arm of global brewer SABMiller, in October 2005 as the new company’s first sales director. He was made managing director in October 2008.

Miller said: “I am sad to be leaving a great company and team, but also very excited by my new challenge with the Meantime Brewing Co.

“I have hugely enjoyed my time at Miller Brands and am very proud of the team’s success to date. I am sure that the team I leave behind will lead the organisation to even greater heights.”

Hector Gorosabel, MD of SABMiller Western & Central Europe, said: “I would like to thank Nick for being instrumental in establishing Miller Brands as the leading premium beer company in the UK, and wish him every success in his new endeavour.

"We are recruiting for his successor and an announcement will be made in due course.”

Meantime Brewmaster and founder Alastair Hook said h had been impressed with the way Miller had grown brands such as Peroni.

"The appointment of Nick, along with continued financial backing from shareholders, should ensure the UK craft brewing revolution starts ‘shaking trees’ in a more professional and perceptive manner than it has done previously.

"I have always stated the craft brewing revolution in America as my greatest influence. With Nick on board we believe we can now live that dream ourselves, right here.”
