Topvar Brewery tops previous output

The 10-month output of the Topvar brewery in Topoľčany was 508,030 hectolitres - up 13,500 from the same period of last year, said Topvar spokeswoman Martina Herdová. She said the beer maker is likely to exceed its planned annual output for this year, which is set at 575,000 hectolitres.

After the expiration of its three-year ISO 9002 quality management certificate, the company underwent a recertification audit last week by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance.

"The audit, covering the production of beer, malt and soft drinks, requires that quality management conditions be met also by suppliers of basic raw materials and packaging," said Topvar Marketing Director Jozef Nemec. The Lloyd's recertification audit prolongs the validity of Topvar's ISO 9002 international quality certificate until 2002.

Topvar is the largest brewery in Slovakia owned exclusively by Slovaks, and is the third largest brewery in the country, behind the Šáriš brewery (owned by South African Breweries) and Zlatý Bažant (owned by the Dutch Heineken company).
