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“. We are talking to a clever “playing trainer“ a person that can be called a godfather of the Ukrainian craft. He has a dozen of successful projects to his name. Dmitry told us about craft beer in Ukraine, on market cycles, on specifity of operating in retail and HoReCa, on union of Ukrainian brewers and certainly, how a brewery of his own, First Dnipro Brewery is doing.
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.
Russia: Positions of Brewing CompaniesThe 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 brandsIn 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 2019During 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.
The trend of complication of Russian beer market is going on and in several directions at the same time. The range has got wider, the import and small segments are growing, namely craft beer, alcohol-free beer and special flavor beer. At the same time, all ex-mega brands and light lagers by Russian brewers are experiencing a decline of their shares. AB InBev Efes, Heineken, MBC and Pivzavod Trekhsosenskiy have exceeded the market, Carlsberg was developing slower than the market and Ochakovo as well as some other mid-sized breweries have been cutting down their volumes. To a big extent brewers’ performance was connected to their ability to reach agreement with networks, sacrifice their margin and enter new markets. Craft brewers are facing a serious danger of producers’ registration introduction – de facto licensing. ...
Pentair S?dmo Completes DSV Complete Valve Range
The range of nominal widths was extended from DN 25 to DN 150 (DIN 11850), OD 1.0” to OD 6.” (ASME BPE 1997) and ISO 25 to ISO 100 (DIN EN ISO 1127). Additional executions including shuttle, tank outlet and ring main valves, a sterilizable execution, as well as a costefficient
variant for the application in CIP areas are available. The valve range is complemented by a mix proof valve that – with minimized space demand – fulfills the requirements of the U.S. Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO).
Mix proof valve technology for tank outlets, ring mains and CIP areas DSV Complete tank outlet valves enable the process installation operator to fully integrate the complete piping system – up to the tank bottom – into the CIP processes. By using these valves no product residue can remain in the tank outlet pipes.
The preferred area of application for ring main double seat valves is withdrawal and infeed of circulating liquids with nominal widths larger than DN 150, as they are applied in storage areas of mineral water plants.
The CIP double seat variants are a cost-optimized execution for the mix proof application in CIP areas. The cleaning of the leakage chamber is – due to a defined switching loss – automatically done during opening resp. closing of the valve.
On basis of a leak-free switching and liftable double seat valve Pentair S?dmo implemented the “S-sp” sterilizable and flushable execution. Additional steam/flush locks at the atmospheric stem duct areas, as well as an external spindle flush connection assures the sterilization of all areas that are contacted with product during the stroke of the valve. This execution is optimally suited for aseptic applications.
365it Complete PMO Mix Proof
The 365it Complete Mix Proof Valve incorporates an additional centrally located valve seat. Furthermore, the design of the lower valve stem allows automated mechanical cleaning of the external lower stem surface during CIP as standard. Combined with the process control top IntelliTop 2.0®, the 365it Complete fulfills the strict requirements of the PMO for use in the U.S. dairy industry.
New seal and guidance conception
The DSV Complete valve range has been undergone new conceptions of the sealing technology and guidance of moving valve parts. In the areas of the shaft duct, Pentair S?dmo not only enhanced the seals and guidance parts, but also optimized the surface quality of the stainless steel shaft by application of a special manufacturing technology. Thus the friction during the valve stroke was reduced by more the 50 percent. Furthermore, the valve seat area has been redesigned. The innovative RSC seal is now used for the sealing of the radial valve seat. This results in a significant higher life cycle time and an increase of the permissible operation pressure up to 10 bar (145 psi).
Focus on manufacturing quality The valves in the DSV Complete range are machined out of a solid piece of bar stock. This results in valves of highest quality and robustness. Pentair S?dmo also makes maintenance as easy as possible. All wear and tear parts of DSV Complete valves can easily and quickly be exchanged without the need of expensive specialized tools.
Please find further information on the DSV Complete valve range under www.suedmo.de Caption: With its DSV Complete Valve Range Pentair S?dmo offers a complete valve program with all of the options for a selection of sustainable, economical and perfectly fitting models.
