Baltika has begun supplying beer to China. The Russian beer producer said yesterday (6 October) that it expects to export over 35 decalitres to China by the end of this year.

According to Prime-Tass news agency, the brewer dispatched its first batches to the Chinese provinces of Liaoning, Shandong, Heilongjiang and Jilin. Baltika hopes to spread to the other Chinese regions shortly.

The Hunchun Davuan Trade Company holds the rights for general distribution in the north-eastern territories of China, the news agency said.
