RUSSIA: Baltika considers Belarus brewery
Baltika has been discussing the possibility of building a brewery in Belarus.
Russia's leading brewer said it could see opportunities in the Eastern European country, where it sold 26m litres of its Baltika beer last year.
A Baltika spokesperson told just-drinks that company officials returned from Belarus yesterday (13 July), where they had been discussing proposals, and that more should be announced by the autumn.
"We are ready to work in Belarus and ready to discuss this and other plans with the government there," he added.
Although nothing concrete has been agreed, there is a chance the brewer may take part in the rebuilding of a brewery in the country, the spokesman said. He added that reports of an agreed joint venture in Belarus were inaccurate at this stage.
