Dmitry Nekrasov’s Philosophy — on the Past, Present and Future of Ukrainian Brewing IndustryA meeting with Dmitry Nekrasov always turns into a training course: “Introduction to brewing business“.

The market of import beer in Russia: review and databasesThe market of import beer is rapidly growing and changing. But while in the past years it was growing due to brands variety, in 2019 major and affordable brands from TOP-10 were developing actively. It seems that the fact of a brand origin from far abroad counties, even if it is not well known but has moderate price and good distribution provides for million liters of sales in the territory of Russia. Among distributors AB InBev Efes was far behind, yet the role of Baltika and suppliers of the second row got more important. The boom of German brands was followed by stagnation of import from other traditional regions (and Belarus) instead the supplies from Mexico, Lithuania and Asian countries grew considerably.
Barley brewing offers basis for portfolio variation and sustainability
Launched almost a year ago, Brewers Compass is DSM’s most recent enzyme-based blend for barley brewing, when that ingredient is used in a range from 30 to 100 per cent (in terms of grist levels).
Since barley is typically half the price of malt, Van Roon (pictured) said it enabled significant cost savings, typically generated 60kg CO2 less per tonne of barley used and could also be used as a cost-effective platform for portfolio diversification.
On its launch, DSM cited increased off-trade beer consumption that – due to economic and regulatory events – was stimulating demand for quality beers (and products such as Brewers Compass) in the value and private label segments.
So did Van Roon think demand for such products was being fuelled by brewers cutting-down on malt-based beers or diversifying within a product portfolio?
He said “I don’t think it’s per se cutting down. I truly believe that malt will remain a mainstream brewing raw material. However, Brewer’s Compass provides our customers with choice and flexibility, for segmenting their portfolio, going into the area of local premium blends, or making exciting new propositions when blending.
“For instance, with nutraceuticals or fruit juices…or to reduce costs for existing products by partially replacing barley with malt,” Van Roon added.
Whether malt would continue to gain grown at the expense of malt remained to be seen, said Van Roon. “For sure there are interesting opportunities ahead. The final choice will rest with our customers, and their decision to segment their portfolio.
"However, coming back to the sustainability advantages of using barley (also the value it brings in terms of cost savings)… there are very interesting opportunities ahead for brewing with barley.”
Van Roon also spoke about the key current trends DSM had identified within global brewing.
