Baltika Breweries will supply beer to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

Baltika Breweries unit has been named as the official beer supplier for the Winter Olympics in Russia in 2014.

The Carlsberg-owned division, which owns the market-leader Baltika beer brand, confirmed to just-drinks today (23 December) that it will supply beer to the games, which will be held in Sochi on the country's Black Sea coast. Earlier this week, the Sochi 2014 organising committee's president and CEO, Dmitry Chernyshenko, signed an agreement with Isaac Sheps, CEO of Baltika Breweries' CEO and Carlsberg's senior VP for Eastern Europe.

Baltika said it will subsequently use its official supplier status in marketing communications and on product packaging.

“Sochi 2014 has been attracting more and more top-class Russian and international companies, and this latest agreement is further evidence of the remarkable success of our marketing programme, said Chernyshenko.
