Carlsberg has suspended production at one of its Baltika Breweries' facilities in Russia.

This month, Ben Cooper considers the need for healthy competition among drinks companies when it comes to driving industry-wide sustainability.

Five years ago, Heineken announced it was cutting 140 jobs in Russia, with the suspension of brewing at one of its sites. The news came just weeks after the Dutch firm had revealed plans for another closure in the country.

Anheuser-Busch InBev has announced it is shutting down another of its Russian breweries – its fourth closure in the country in the last two years. 

Constellation Brands has announced plans to raise the capacity at its Corona brewery in Mexico, and intends to purchase adjacent facilities from Anheuser-Busch InBev that will be run by a new JV with Owens-Illinois.

Heineken is offering upwards of EUR50,000 (US$63,000) to technology firms that can solve beer industry problems such as how to make drinking in moderation “cool”.

Constellation Brand's CEO has boasted that a new glass production JV will give the company the biggest beer margins in North America.
