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. ...

Indonesia. Dozens of illegal bars razed to the ground in Jakarta
Dozens of illegal bars and brothels along a polluted riverside strip in north Jakarta -- known locally as Kalijodo -- were reduced to rubble by excavators.
The bars -- many marked by neon beer signs and illustrations of beautiful women luring men -- were torn down by the machines in a matter of minutes, leaving behind nothing but splintered wood, brick and old mattresses.
Elsewhere police searched a three-storey hotel for any remaining residents before a digger ripped the entire structure to the ground with a spectacular crash.
North Jakarta Mayor Rustam Effendi, who oversaw the demolition, said the buildings were illegal and the demolition would make way for a public park.
"There was open prostitution there and all kinds of other things as a result, like liquor," he told AFP.
During the eviction of residents over the past week, police seized and destroyed large quantities of alcohol.
The plan angered long-time residents and there had been fears that protesters would try to disrupt the demolition. But thousands living in the area agreed to leave in the days beforehand and the operation went smoothly.
Jakarta authorities decided to take action after a fatal car accident early this month blamed on a man who had been drinking in the riverside shanty area.
Hundreds of curious onlookers from neighbouring areas and trash collectors seeking scrap materials gathered to watch the spectacle, despite heavy rain.
One elderly food vendor welcomed the idea of a park in the area, but another was worried the destruction of Kalijodo would hit his business.
"For sure it will be less," Agus Cendol told AFP.
Prostitution is illegal in Indonesia but is rampant in major cities.
The government last week instructed local authorities to shut down an estimated 100 red-light districts across the world's most populous Muslim-majority country.
Local governments, which have substantial power, have already closed dozens of red-light districts in recent years.
