According to data from AssoBirra Monitor (the observatory of Italy’s beer producers association), in recent years the production and supply of beers have expanded and grown significantly throughout Italy thanks to the creativity of Italian master brewers. The sector today plays a leading role in the economy and exports of Italy’s F&B (+6.6% in 2018, for a volume of 3 million hectoliters). Up to 77% of Italians drink beer, and Italy comes now in ninth place in Europe as for production, with over 9,000 different labels.
A MORE FAVORABLE TAXATION IN ITALY
On the occasion of the International Beer Day, AssoBirra’s analysis shows that large and small Italian producers are positively affected by the lowering of taxes, which has also supported the growth of consumption. The more favourable taxation has given a boost to the sector, generating an increase in production – supported by an efficient agricultural chain and high-quality local raw materials – and encouraging investment with positive effects also for employment.
