Slovak beer market turns decline into growth

The leader on the Slovak beer market, Hurbanovo-based brewery Heineken Slovensko, reported an annual 10 percent increase in beer sales in the first half of this year, selling more than 875,000 hectoliters of beer.

This was part of the Slovak beer market’s 6 percent sales growth in H1 2007, Roman Krajniak of Heineken told the SITA newswire.

“Heineken increased its market share in each of the first six months of 2007, reaching 41.5 percent in late June," Krajniak said.

The Slovak beer market has fallen behind in the lastseveral years, but started stabilizing in H2 2006. "The first half of 2007 has also confirmed we’re returning from the negative territory of the last few years," Krajniak said.
