IRAN: Baltika to resume shipments
Russian brewer Baltika is to resume shipments of alcohol-free beer to Iran, having received the necessary import certification.
Baltika, Russia's largest brewer, said it plans to ship 47,000 litres of non-alcoholic beer to Iran during the next few days, and expects to export 500,000 litres to the country in 2006, giving it a 20% share of the Iranian import market.
The brewer, which is majority-owned by Baltic Beverages Holding, the joint venture between Carlsberg and Scottish & Newcastle, said it sold 140,000 litres of beer to Iran last year.
