POLAND: Weather drives further increases in beer sales
The good weather in July could see a further fillip for the industry with industry experts believing that sales in July will be significantly higher this year in comparison to previous years. Indeed if the sunny weather continues for another two months it is expected to impact on beer sales with as much as a 4-5% growth on last year.
The small and medium-sized breweries experienced increases in sales of up to 50% from the previous year according to partial estimates.
The top breweries are Zywiec and Kompania Piwowarska, which produced in excess of 2.4m and 2.3m hectolitres respectively. Carlsberg-Okocim and Brau Union noted a fall in sales of 100,000 and 19,000 hectolitres, or 5 and 8% of their respective productions.
