Because of the price competition and presence expansion in the modern trade company #2. has come close to the leading position.

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.

ZIEMANN at the Craft Brewers Conference 2015

Fair exhibits focused on mash filter and tank technology

The Craft Brewers Conference will take place in Portland, Oregon between April 14 and April 17, 2015. At the parallel trade fair BrewExpo America, ZIEMANN International GmbH from Ludwigsburg will be presenting products and services, which are particularly interesting for craft brewers. At the ZIEMANN stand 143, the focus will be on tank and mash filter technology.

With the membrane mash filter BUTTERFLY, ZIEMANN provides craft brewers with a lautering technology that is particularly suitable for their framework conditions. The mash filter with its blind plates is able to process very small batches. Moreover, the lautering of alternative cereals or starch sources is easily possible, allowing the brew master the flexibility he needs to be inventive, as well as to brew beers with a higher original gravity.

A significant distinctive feature of the ZIEMANN membrane mash filter is that the sparging of the spent grains cake can be performed from both sides. As a result, the mash filter cloths must be cleaned less frequently. Another special feature is that the mash filter consists of both membrane plates and chamber plates. This increases the service reliability, results in lower maintenance costs and has positive effects on the investment costs.

The combination of an automatic plate transport and an automatic cloth cleaning system enables the brewery to produce a high number of brews. These automatic devices are either already installed upon delivery or will be modular retrofitted.

In the field of the tank technology, ZIEMANN will be presenting its newly designed dome top area: the dome top and the connected dome ring consist of a 12 mm thick, weather-resistant plastic material. Due to this material, the dome top is extremely robust and very user-friendly with a weight of just 15 kilograms. Moreover, the dome is characterized by a high degree of flexibility: it is, for example, suitable for each height of the fittings, it is available with diameters of 1.000 mm or 1.200 mm and it can be installed with or without insulation.

In connection with the dome top, ZIEMANN will be presenting a catwalk support system that is no longer running through the tank insulation, as well as a catwalk made of stainless steel. This catwalk convinces with regard to occupational safety and its price-performance ratio.

Last but not least, ZIEMANN will demonstrate at the BrewExpo America that all solutions are developed by brewers for brewers, independently of the size of the brewery. For the creative craft brewery this means: ZIEMANN provides an energy- and yield-optimized plant with the same sophisticated technology and tried and tested innovative solutions, as used in large breweries. This plant allows the brewery to respond more effectively to the raw materials and to create individual boiling processes.
