- eliminating bottlenecks in production (especially by investing in an additional bottling line);
- investing in working capital to alleviate liquidity issues until full production under new capacity is achieved.
- Demonstration of the EBRD's willingness to support its successful clients in their expansion underlines the Bank’s commitment to clients.
- The growth of the Russian brewery sector has attracted significant international attention and proves to international investors that a concerted effort to create quality local products can yield good results. The success in Moscow and St. Petersburg is now being pursued by key players across the country. The expected growth in the consumption of quality products will in turn translate into larger demand for good quality local bottles and malting barley in addition to distribution expertise.
- Promotion of linkages with suppliers is demonstrated through the Bank’s evaluation of a number of packaging and maltery projects to satisfy the growing demands of the brewery sector and to replace expensive (due to transport costs) imports.
- The sponsor has achieved a smooth transfer of technology, marketing, distribution, production and general management skills from other sponsor companies and has already been recognised as attaining industry best practice. The key area for the sponsor at present is establishment of its regional distribution network.
- The profits generated from the relatively successful beer industry are increasingly starting to benefit related small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Russia’s regions. (For example, one distributor alone in Rostov employs 300 people.)
