A focus on improving profitability has failed to benefit the bottom line for Kirin Holdings in the first quarter of 2016.

A "solid start" for Carlsberg has seen the first quarter generate a 2% lift in sales in organic terms for the brewer.

Earlier today, Carlsberg released a trading update for the first three months of 2016. Net sales grew in organic terms by 2% in the first quarter, as group volumes dipped by 2%. Here, we look at the company's performance during the three-month period by region.

Carlsberg's CEO has said he expects to close more breweries in China, following yesterday's news that the group  has already closed eight over the last 12 months.

Anheuser-Busch InBev's Budweiser beer is to change its logo to "America" in a new marketing push described as the brand's "most patriotic summer ever".

Heineken's management team has been in Vietnam this week for the company's annual Financial Markets Conference. CEO Jean-François van Boxmeer called the country the "poster child" for international beer thanks to its strong demographics and growing demand.
