Industry Trend Analysis - Green Shoots For Carlsberg's Premium & Non-Alcoholic Offerings - OCT 2017

Americas September 2017 / Global / Industry

Premiumisation, craft and non-alcoholic beer have buoyed Carlsberg's revenues in its H1 2017 results. This was in the face of declining volume consumption of beer and other alcoholic beverages across its three regions; Western Europe, Eastern Europe and Asia.

Western Europe September 2017 / United Kingdom / Industry
