SERBIA: Carlsberg nears production raise completion
Carlsberg's Serbian subsidiary has almost completed a production increase.
Carlsberg Serbia, formerly known as Pivara Celarevo, will begin operating its new bottling line on 5 July, when the project finishes at the end of this month, the company said earlier this week.
Annual capacity at the facility in Celarevo, northern Serbia has been upped to 1.5m hectolitres from 1.1m at a cost of EUR6.3m (US$7.95m), Carlsberg Serbia's CEO, Isaac Sheps said.
The bottling line will allow for beer to be packed in 0.33-litre and 0.5-litre glass bottles and cans, Sheps said.
Last year, the company claimed 17% market share, up from 11% in 2004.
