GERMANY: Radeberger quits Deutsche Brauer-Bund trade association
The brewer, which is the largest in Germany, confirmed today (22 November) that it is leaving the trade body. Although Radeberger did not give any further details behind the decision, local reports have suggested that the company was unhappy with both the structure of the DBB and its attitude towards larger brewers in the country's beer sector.
When contacted by just-drinks, a spokesperson for the DBB confirmed the move, adding that Radeberger would leave the organisation at some point next year.
The brewer currently accounts for around 15% of the German beer market and has 14 breweries around the country.
Radeberger Gruppe has received the green light from the European Commission for its proposed purchase of Getränke Essmann....
