Modelo Group’s Hunucmá plant will begin its beer exports to Europe and Africa in the second half of November….
MERIDA — The Secretary of Economic Development of the State (Sefoe), Ernesto Herrera Novelo, said that Progreso will be the embarcation point of the merchandise that the Modelo brewery will allocate to supply the demand in different countries, marking the strategy of international expansion of the Yucatecan brewery.
“Grupo Modelo will send six thousand containers of the Corona, Modelo, Victoria, León and Montejo brands to the international market, which are produced at the Hunucma plant, which currently produces seven million hectoliters, but will reach the medium term 15 million hectoliters in its local production,” he said.
The state official said that the company’s exports will be shipped to European and African countries, with the Montejo and León Negra brands, which are the largest sellers, but also will be sent to the United States market.
Within the projection for 2018, the beer industry will export 20,000 containers and by 2019 it is expected to reach 35,000, an amount that will increase Progreso’s cargo flow by more than 30% in the next two years. Last year this port closed with almost 73 thousand containers mobilized.
“The industrial plant of the Modelo plans to reach a production of 1.9 billion bottles of beer per year, of which 14% will be exported to Canada, Colombia, Guatemala, Belize, Chile, the United Kingdom and Belgium.”
On the other hand, the president of the Association of Customs Agents of Yucatan, Javier Villanueva Pérez Abreu, indicated that before the beginning of the exports of the Modelo Group its associates are working with all the service providers and authorities, to avoid that a significant volume load represents a saturation problem for the port.
“We are working with all service providers, shipping companies, road haulers, transporters and authorities, in the coordination of efforts to prevent a significant volume of cargo representing a problem of saturation for the port and thereby to give Yucatan boost and competitiveness”, he concluded.
