The market of import beer in Russia: review and databasesThe market of import beer is rapidly growing and changing. But while in the past years it was growing due to brands variety, in 2019 major and affordable brands from TOP-10 were developing actively. It seems that the fact of a brand origin from far abroad counties, even if it is not well known but has moderate price and good distribution provides for million liters of sales in the territory of Russia. Among distributors AB InBev Efes was far behind, yet the role of Baltika and suppliers of the second row got more important. The boom of German brands was followed by stagnation of import from other traditional regions (and Belarus) instead the supplies from Mexico, Lithuania and Asian countries grew considerably.
Dr. Rudolf Michel, Head of Application Development Beverages & Beer at GEA, assumes chairmanship of the Board of Trustees at Doemens
Promoting the transfer of knowledge
Dr. Rudolf Michel, himself a trained brewer and maltster, studied brewing and beverage technology at the Technical University of Munich in Freising-Weihenstephan and did his doctorate on “the separation mechanisms of hot trub in a whirlpool”. Ever since he began his academic career, teaching has been of great importance to him. “After almost a decade of university life, I switched to the practical sphere of mechanical engineering, but I want to continue to promote curiosity, openness and knowledge transfer, and to establish a link between beginners and qualified professionals. In today’s dynamic market environment, physical laws are the only constant, everything else is changing continuously. In this way we are all still learning. I cannot imagine my work any differently”, says Michel.
As Chairman of the Board of Trustees he is committing himself to promoting an intensive exchange between the trainees and the technology company: “At GEA, we develop medium and long-term strategies for the beverage and brewing industry. This can only be achieved through cooperation with our international brewery customers. We are intent on taking a holistic approach to brewing, from raw materials to bottling, and making the brewing process energetically more sustainable.”
In his new role at Doemens, Michel wants to pursue GEA's approach of bringing industry leaders, future talent and the industry together. In addition, the Board of Trustees promotes the practical relevance and international orientation of teaching, which has been given even better training conditions by the new building project “Doemens 2020” in Grдfelfing. The Doemens school is already working with the brewery school in Wuhan, China, and with the World Brewing Academy in Chicago, USA.
