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. ...

China Resources says Q3 profit falls, beer sales up
* Retail sales rise 27 pct, same-store sales up 11.6 pct
* Says consumer sentiment hit by global economic woes
By Donny Kwok
China Resources Enterprise Ltd, the country's biggest supermarket operator and top beer maker, on Thursday posted an 18.4 percent drop in third-quarter profit amid rising costs.
"Uncertainties surrounding the global economy have affected consumer sentiment in China, which in turn has put pressure on the group's consumer goods business in the near term," said Chairman Qiao Shibo in a statement.
"We are optimistic about the long-term development of China's retail market," Qiao added.
The company, which produces China's top beer brand Snow with one of the world's largest brewers SABMiller Plc, said profit for the third quarter fell to HK$863 million ($110.9 million), from HK$1.06 billion profit a year earlier.
Along with the urban maintenance and construction tax and education surcharges imposed on foreign enterprises since the end of 2010, an increase in labour costs and an acceleration of retail network expansion had affected earnings, it said.
Profit from the retail division plunged 39.7 percent during the quarter, while food dropped 32.2 percent, and beverages fell 26.2 percent. The beer division posted a 1.5 percent gain.
In August, China Resources Enterprise had said cost pressures would continue to rise for the remainder of the year, but its profit margin should remain at the same level as the first half.
"We will also continue to seek investment opportunities in a prudent manner to further expand our business and move closer to our goal of becoming the largest consumer goods company in China," Qiao said, adding that the company would enhance profitability through organic growth.
The conglomerate said revenue for the quarter rose to HK$30.8 billion from HK$24.45 billion a year earlier. Sales from its retail division rose 27 percent to HK$17.67 billion.
Sales from the beer division were up 19.3 percent at HK$9.27 billion. The food business jumped 35.9 percent to HK$2.88 billion, and beverages climbed 45.4 percent to HK$1.1 billion.
NINE-MONTH BEER SALES UP 24 PCT
The company said beer sales for the first nine months of 2011 rose 24.1 percent to HK$22.1 billion, while profit rose 10.1 percent to HK$863 million.
The company, which operates about 80 breweries in China, said it would strengthen cooperation with suppliers and reinforce its centralised purchasing system to stabilise raw material costs.
On the retail front, China Resources, which operates more than 3,800 stores in China and more than 77 percent self-operated, said same-stores sales rose 11.6 percent during the quarter but the business was facing pressure from rising wages and taxes.
Shares of the company were down 1.15 percent at the midday trading break on Thursday before the results, against a 0.88 percent fall in the Hang Seng Index.
