JAPAN: Hite Brewery signs beer export deal - report

By | 1 February 2010

Hite Brewery, the largest brewer in South Korea, has signed a deal with Japanese foodmaker Kawasho Foods Corp to export beers to Japan.

Hite will sell beers via Kawasho's distribution network, using the name 'Prime Drafts' for its beers, according to local reports.

Japan's beer market shrank by 2% in volume in 2009, according to industry figures.

The volume was a record low for the fifth straight year and highlights why all major domestic brewers are looking abroad for growth.
