RUSSIA: Baltika to up brewery capacity and investment
One of the leading brewers in Russia, the St. Petersburg-based brewing company Baltika, is to increase the brewing capacity of its new brewery in the Samara region by half again.
The brewery can currently produce some 100m litres of beer a year, but the company said it wanted to increase that to 150m litres.
The overall plant-building, which began last fall, will now cost some US$50m. The balancing and commissioning work at the new facilities is planned for completing next January, and the plant will be fully up and running next March. Six facilities are now being erected and rail, gas and water, telephone, electrical and sewer lines are being put in.
