The impact of COVID19 is yet to be entirely understood, from a human cost all the way through to the ultimate impact on the broader economy, we may well end up having to deal with the fall out of this crisis for many months to come.
At the same time the real impact on the brewing industry is being immediately felt with large volumes of beer being withdrawn due to out of code compliance due to closed retail, reduced volume sales, closed brewpubs and tap rooms and ultimately a supply chain that is under enormous pressure to deliver in challenging times.
A million pints are being written off in Ireland link.
The US brewing industry estimates $900m to be written off in out of code link.
Inbev has to write off at least 400m bottles link.
This is all driving the brewing industry to find new solutions to the extension of shelf life of beer. This is most strongly felt in mid-size craft brewers, typically dealing with higher organic levels and a greater susceptibility to shelf life limitations and the impact of disrupted supply chain and retail storage.
Brewshield has real tested solutions for the limitation of oxidation and improvement in shelf life and flavor preservation, read our science here. We are able to absorb and eliminate the primary causers of oxidation and staling in beer. Our extract is not only 100% organic and natural but it is the sacrificial element that is the first line of defense in preserving beer shelf life and flavor.
We have been instrumental in assisting large US craft bewerer in their stabilisation, shelf life and flavor preservation strategies. Connect with us to find out more
