The French Brewers Association has announced that it will be forced to destroy 10 million liters of beer due to the closure of cafes, restaurants and pubs caused by the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, BFM reports.
The liquidation will be made, since the shelf life of the drink is running out and there is no point in storing beer further. Moreover, the destruction of products will cost significant amounts for the companies.
"The abrupt closure of cafes, restaurants, stopping tourist activities and the cancellation of all festivals and events have led to the fact that more than 10 million liters of beer are not in demand," the association announced.
It is noted that about 70% of breweries in France reported a reduction of at least half the turnover since mid-March.
The tough form of isolation regime in France is expected to end on May 11. Citizens will be able to move around without special permission from the authorities, which is currently necessary due to the isolation regime introduced in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, except for movements over distances of more than 100 km from the house, which will be possible only for family or professional reasons.
At the same time, citizens over 65 years of age are still being urged to respect the isolation regime due to higher risk of infection in this age group.
After May 11, a gradual resumption of companies will begin, although working from home will continue, where possible, for at least the next three weeks.
The trading network, except for restaurants and cafes, will open on May 11. For restaurants and cafes, a separate decision will be made at the end of May with the prospect of a possible opening after June 2.
At the same time, a recent pole by FranceInfo reported that –25% of breweries in France have been forced to close and 70% have declared a loss of up to 50% in revenue since March 15.
