Published May 27, 2014
Market observers said that "the second and third quarters of this year will see strong beer sales in China and that sales performance is expected to be boosted further with the start of the 2014 FIFA World Cup," according to the WANT CHINA TIMES. Products related to the World Cup "will see buoyant sales including beer." In the alcohol and beverage wholesale market, three Danish and German beers "have launched exclusive designs for the World Cup, which are already on shelves."
