Beer deliveries down overall this year but climbing since May

Beer deliveries reached 13.42 million litres between January and May 2019, down 6.4 per cent compared with the same period last year.

The decrease is mainly attributed to a fall in local consumption in the first five months of the year, which reached 12.66 million litres, down 9.3 per cent year-on-year. At the same time, exports almost doubled compared with the same period in 2018 reaching 762,781 litres.

Total deliveries of beer – local consumption and exports – in May 2019 amounted to 4.43 million litres, a decrease of 9.4 per cent.

Local consumption amounted to 4.19 million litres, down 12.1 per cent from the same month in 2018, while exports in May 2019 reached 239,785 litres and doubled compared to 115,030 litres in May 2018.

May is so far the month with the most beer deliveries for 2019.
