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. ...

India. Tasmac shops have plundered common man’s wealth in Tamil Nadu
Addressing a demonstration here demanding total prohibition in the State, Dr. Anbumani said the Tasmac shops had plundered the common man’s wealth and ruined many a family. “The gold, silver and money kept in almirahs have all vanished as the men in the family have used them to buy liquor,” he said. He attributed alcohol addiction as the reason for rise in number of road accidents, young widows and increasing crime against women.
Stating that no mother would allow her children to drink, he said it was only the Chief Minister (fondly called Amma by her partymen) who was encouraging people to drink. “No other government in the world is generating one-third of its annual revenue through liquor sale,” he said.
Dr. Anbumani faulted the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam for having lifted total prohibition in the State despite advice against the move from leaders like Periyar, Rajaji and Kamaraj. He said majority of the 12 units manufacturing various types of Indian-made foreign liquor were owned by people in DMK, All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and the Congress, he charged.
He also ridiculed the DMK’s claim of bringing prohibition. “What was the party doing when it was in power in the past,” he said.
Dr. Anbumani assured that if PMK was elected to power, its first move would be to ban liquor and impose total prohibition.
“My government will not give you home appliances as freebies. But, we will give you a life with dignity and self respect. All the freebies from my government will be free education and free healthcare. Every family will save at least Rs. One lakh a year through those schemes,” he said.
Besides, every district would have a centre to rehabilitate those addicted to liquor. Special efforts would be taken to provide job opportunities to young widows.
