Latest Carlton & United Breweries News
Oct 20, 2021
Hot off the press: October issue out now By Kim Berry | 20 October 2021 The October issue of Food & Drink Business is here! Our special features take you from the paddock, through building a plant, to ensuring it is meeting all the required health and safety standards. There are industry insights and profiles, the latest products and equipment and much more. Your print editions should be on your desks early next week. In the mean time, you can read it online here . On the cover It has to be said, how pretty is our GS1 cover this issue. So far this year we’ve had trucks, hygiene and safety gear, water management and more – you can’t say Food & Drink Business is not a broad church. The bright engaging colours on our cover reflect GS1’s cover story – how the ecommerce boom and explosion in online sales makes high quality branding and retail digital strategies critical to stand out in an overcrowded marketplace. From page 14. Editor’s picks On page 58 is this month’s Rear View Fast Five with Danny Celoni – currently PepsiCo’s CEO but heading over the Asahi Beverages to head up Carlton & United Breweries in the new year. He has some wonderful reflections on his career so far. Juicy Japanese Deal Made We’ve been reporting on Australian beverage company Made Group for a few years now. Made Group founder Luke Marget spoke at one of our very first LIVE events in 2016. We covered the news when Coca-Cola Amatil bought a 45 per cent stake in the business, and when the group built its 15,000 square metre facility on Melbourne’s outskirts. Earlier this year there was talk of an acquisition by TPG Global, but in the meantime we’re hear to report on its very successful launch into the Japanese market with the help of Austrade. From page 14 . By Association The new editor of our stablemate PKN Packaging News Colleen Bate reports on the first of a series on the future of manufacturing run by the Australian Packaging and Processing Machine Association (APPMA). I found the insights and knowledge sharing by the advanced manufacturing head of the World Economic Forum Francisco Betti very beneficial to my own working knowledge of the sector in terms of where we are at and what needs to be done. A worthwhile read on page 18 . Do I stay or do I go? Dylan O’Donnell This issue we have a feature by Dylan O’Donnell, he’s part of the property advisory firm Lpc Cresa and has more than 20 years’ experience in commercial real estate. He discusses the benefits of negotiating a successful commercial lease when it comes time to stay or move on. From common mistakes to a five step guide form, there are valuable actionable insights for your business. That’s from page 32 . Out of the ashes This is a plant design and build we’re going to be following closely over the next year or so. Back in 2018, Thomas Food International’s meat processing plant in Murray Bridge, South Australia burnt to the ground. But in a paddock, just out of the town, a new plant is rising. Literally. It is a mammoth development – around 180,000 cubic metres of soil on the site has been redistributed, 13,500 cubic metres of concrete laid and now, 1700 tonnes of steelworks begins. We can’t wait to see this build unfold. Page 34 . Thomas Foods International group engineering manager Nekta Nicolaou. The varnishing touch Hygiene and safety is critical to the food and beverage sector, to the point it can’t be overstated. So I was really excited to bring you this piece about Twelve8 Technology’s SafetoShare Varnish. I’m not doing it any favours with this brief description, but it is essentially a patented clear protective film that can be applied to cardboard and paper packaging that repels and kills up to 99 per cent of bacteria. Seriously, some people are so clever. From page 38 . And so much more. Click here .
