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. ...

Vietnam’s largest beer producer Sabeco has new CEO
Xanh, who will represent the State capital in Sabecome, is also a member of the Sabeco Board of Directors.
Meanwhile, the former CEO Ha will concentrate in managing the State capital division and hold the Chairmanship of the Board of Directors.
Xanh, born in 1957, served as Head of the Vietnam Dairy Products Company (Vinamilk)’s Marketting Department before joining Sabeco.
At Vinamilk, he was appreciated for contributing to taking Vinamilk to the top of Vietnam's milk market.
Before being appointed to the hot seat of Sabeco, Xanh was a member of the Board of Directors cum Vice CEO of Sabeco. Xanh is also CEO of Saigon Beer MTV Trade Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Sabeco.
Xanh is one of the four representatives of the State capital in Sabeco.
Sabeco personnel has recently attracted public attention after the Vietnam Association of Financial Investors (VAFI) questioned the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s appointment of Vu Quang Hai (born in 1986), son of former Minister Vu Huy Hoang, as a member of the Board of Directors of Sabeco, the largest beer producer in Vietnam.
Hai was said to be too young and inexperienced to hold such an important position at a large firm where the State holds a major stake.
However, the newly appointed CEO is said to be old enough to assume the post because under the current rules, he will retire next June.
By the end of 2015, the total assets of Sabeco reached VND21,571 billion. Currently, the Ministry of Industry and Trade is the largest shareholder in this corporation, holding 89.95% of capital.
