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. Excise department to fix working hours for beer and wine parlours in Kerala
The excise department has initiated proceedings for plugging this major loophole in the existing foreign liquor rules.The excise department has requested the government to fix the working hours of beer and wine parlours, the numbers of which have increased substantially after the previous UDF government closed down over 400 bars. The excise department's proposal is pending before the government.
According to the rule 28 of the foreign liquor rules, bar hotels (FL-3 licences) can operate only from 9.30am to 10pm. The rule at the same time gives some more leverage to the beverages corporation outlets (FL-1) as these are allowed to be opened from 9am to 11pm. But, the rules do not mention the time limit for beer and wine (FL-11) shops. The excise deputy commissioners are empowered to fix the working hours of FL-1shops in each area, subject to the condition that the working hours do not exceed 12 hours a day. The deputy commissioners have also been given powers to relax the time schedules during fairs and festivals.Despite this concession given to the FL-1shops, Bevco outlets in the state are open for 11 hours, from 10 am to 9 pm. But even here, there is no mention of regulation of working hours of beer or wine parlours by deputy commissioners.
At present, the department has allowed them to function by following bar timings.
But, it won't stand legal scrutiny if someone challenges the enforcement of working hours in court.
