The trend of complication of Russian beer market is going on and in several directions at the same time. The range has got wider, the import and small segments are growing, namely craft beer, alcohol-free beer and special flavor beer. At the same time, all ex-mega brands and light lagers by Russian brewers are experiencing a decline of their shares. AB InBev Efes, Heineken, MBC and Pivzavod Trekhsosenskiy have exceeded the market, Carlsberg was developing slower than the market and Ochakovo as well as some other mid-sized breweries have been cutting down their volumes. To a big extent brewers’ performance was connected to their ability to reach agreement with networks, sacrifice their margin and enter new markets. Craft brewers are facing a serious danger of producers’ registration introduction – de facto licensing. ...

Beer market of Kazakhstan acquired both traits of East European countries and South Eastern Asia taking a transitional position between them by many criteria and consumption style. Yet there is a positive trend in beer production which differs Kazakhstan from most of the neighboring countries. The market has remained consolidated in the hands of two international players because of its small size. However, it faces dynamic processes such as fast growth of draft beer sales, up and downs of regional companies and Carlsberg Group’s ultimate expansion. Excessive mainstream segment has declined over the recent years, yet, Zhigulevskoe and national brands with regional links have yielded their positions to a range of new products. In our review special attention was paid to regional analysis of the markets. In 14 regions of Kazakhstan we compared the companies’ positions, the market price segmentation and DIOT channel development. Besides we have compared the beer market of Kazakhstan to neighboring countries. ...
Karmeliten Brauerei wins the Handelsblatt Energy Award
Berlin, Straubing, Ludwigsburg, 04.10.2017 – A cooperation consisting of the partners ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA GmbH, the University Weihenstephan-Triesdorf and the Karmeliten Brauerei, as the visible partner for the Energy Academy, is currently revolutionizing the use of energy in the food and beverage industry. “With the concept of the energy self-sufficient brewery, we have committed ourselves to a sustainable beer production with the greatest possibly savings in energy. We are delighted to receive this extraordinary award”, said Christoph Kämpf, Managing Director of the Karmeliten Brauerei after the ceremony. Together with the brewmaster Thomas Eichenseher and Klaus Gehrig, Managing Director of ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA GmbH, he accepted the glass trophy at the gala event in Berlin.
Since 2013, the initiators of the Energy Awards – the Handelsblatt and GE – have been awarding innovative, future-oriented and promising projects once a year, which use energy optimally and thus increase their efficiency and save energy. The winners are selected by the Energy Academy, a renowned jury. The Energy Academy sees itself as a “think tank” of the energy industry and unites experts, scientists, entrepreneurs and politicians around the topic of energy. In the five categories of industry, mobility, smart infrastructure, start-ups and municipal utilities, the companies are awarded as pioneers of their respective industries, who contribute to shape and advance the development of the energy turnaround. In the category “Industry”, the Karmeliten Brauerei was able to convince the jury with the concept of the energy self-sufficient brewery with an optimal use of raw materials.
In 2013, the Karmeliten Brauerei, which celebrates its 650th anniversary this year as the oldest company in Straubing, was already awarded the ‘Federal Prize for outstanding innovative craft achievement’, together with its partner ZIEMANN HOVLRIEKA GmbH. Another milestone is the ‘Best Practice Label’, awarded by the German Energy Agency ‘dena’, for the energy-efficient cascade brewhouse, developed and implemented by ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA GmbH. In 2017, the nomination for the German Environment Prize followed.
For several years, the brewery plant manufacturer ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA GmbH, the University of Weihenstephan-Triesdorf and the Karmeliten Brauerei have been dealing with the sustainable and environmentally design of the production facility in Straubing and its processes.
The objectives of the innovative concept are as follows:
• Reduction of the use of primary energy
• Own generation of electricity
• Use of natural energy sources (solar thermal energy, Fresnel lenses)
• Energy recovery from wastewater
• Transformation of heat into cold
• Use of natural cold
• Reduction of peak loads (storage technology)
• Recording, evaluation, analysis of energy consumption for an energetic production order planning
Or, in simple terms: almost all energies generated on the grounds of the Karmeliten Brauerei in Straubing shall be used several times in order to be as independent as possible of the energy market.
Among other things, this concept also presents exceptional aspects for the climate and environmental protection. Based on this concept, the Karmeliten Brauerei already avoids about 40 percent of the carbon dioxide emissions. By the end of 2018, the carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by 99.5 percent by further investments. This means that the production of 200 crates of beer produces the same amount of carbon dioxide emissions as it has been produced for only one crate until 2015.
