The brewing company Heineken launches the agricultural project in Novosibirsk and Irkutsk regions, and Bashkiria to supply local barley to its plants in Siberia and Ural. The company’s representative informs Vedomosti about it. Barley will be grown for Heineken: the company plans to sign the agreements with the farmers before sowing time, and buy the seeds on its own. Such model “ensures certain quality and amount of raw material”, the Heineken’s representative says.

The program will be further implemented in Eastern Russia, keeps on the Heineken’s representative. In 2016 3000 ha will be sown, and in 2019 the company fully covers its demand for barley using its own resources and extending the planting area to 25 000 ha. The utmost Heineken plant in the East is situated in Khabarovsk. Now, the company supplies barley for it from the European part of Russia, but, according to its representative, it is going to buy the raw materials in Siberia, and later, maybe, in Primorye. On the European territory of Russia there are three Heineken plants – in Saint-Petersburg, Kaliningrad, and Nizhny Novgorod – and they are supplied with local raw materials now: it meets the expectations and reduces excessive costs, according to the Heineken’s representative. Hence, a barley growing program in this regions can be extended, he supposes.
