Tackle the risk factors of uncertainty for your beer
Climate change is causing increased fluctuations in the growing conditions of hops every year. In the future this may mean some varieties are less able to yield fully, while others will be more resistant and continue to grow well. Adapting your variety usage accordingly as you plan, will protect your business and help the hop farmers ensure supply remains stable.
How are changes in climate affecting hops and our industry? How can new varieties help us mitigate risks in our business?
Stephan Schinagl, Head of Purchasing at BarthHaas, explains.
High Production Costs
Increased pressure on resources, and fluctuations in costs such as energy mean the cost of growing quality hops is seeing an upward trend. As an industry we are working with farmers to help be as efficient as possible, but there are also actions that you can take as a brewer to limit your risk to increased costs.
Around the world legislation is rightly being changed to reduce and address the impact of agriculture on our environment. As the use of pesticides and other active compounds become more restricted, it is more important than ever that you protect your business by being fully informed about Maximum Residue Levels and the latest legislation.
How can we mitigate risks from volatile crops? How is climate change affecting older hop varieties and what can we do if we want to continue using these varieties? And how can contracts help with all of this?
Thomas Raiser, Managing Director at BarthHaas, explains.
How do we deal best with constantly changing residue regulations? Where do challenges arise in this respect and how can brewers reduce potential risks regarding MRL requirements inside and outside their home markets?
Reinhold Kugel, Head of Product Safety and Quality Management, explains.
