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. Sale of parcelled beer uncorks legal issues in Kozhikode
To prevent hoarding of legally purchased liquor for illegal sale at inflated rates or consumption in public on dry days and after bar hours, the Excise commissioner had said that, if a person is caught carrying beer from wine and beer parlours, they would end up as a witness in the case slapped on the seller and the liquor they purchased confiscated as evidence. However, even after the Excise department started acting tough against the violators, the sale of parcelled beer has gone ‘uncontrolled’ over the counters.
As per FL 11 licence conditions, beer or wine bought over the counter from a parlour should be consumed in the parlour itself. Parcelling it and taking it outside the ‘permit room’ is illegal. The same law also applies to bars, now restricted to Five Star hotels, and select clubs.
Excise Deputy Commissioner P K Suresh, said: “We keep a tab on the movement of beer as takeaway parcels from the beer parlours and the situation has been under control. However, surveillance will be further strengthened ahead of the Onam festival”.
“In order to ensure that the bottles are not taken outside, we open the bottle at the counter itself. Some customers have picked up a quarrel with the bar employees over the issue,” said an office-bearer with the Kerala Bar Hotel Association(KBHA). Meanwhile, he said that hoteliers are largely helpless in preventing customers from taking the bottles outside as parcels. “The customers pay money and buy bottled beer. It is not always possible for us to stop the customers at the door and snatch the bottles from them,” he said.
