Pivovar Ostravar has begun exporting to Italy, according to local reports.
The Czech brewery, which is part of Pivovary Staropramen, has made Italy its second export market within the EU, the Czech News Digest reported yesterday (21 August). Pivovar Ostravar began exporting to the UK in December 2004, and is sold in over 1,000 outlets in the country.
The brewery is based in Ostrava, northern Moravia, and produces around 500,000 hectolitres of beer a year.
Ostravar's owner, Staropramaen, is itself controlled by InBev and accounts for around 14% of the Czech beer market, the news service noted.
