Kaiser’s new leader
In 2001, Miguel Alacron, formerly of bottling company Coffin, which is owned by Coca-Cola, will take the reins at Cervejaria Kaiser, replacing Humberto Pandolpho as president. The position of CEO was created for Augusto César Parada, whose task will be to increase Kaiser’s market share, which has fallen slightly from 13.2 % last year to 12.8 % this August, according to AC Nielson. Courtesy of a change in the distribution regulations, beers and other beverages can now be part of an establishment’s single account. Before CADE authorised the reclassification of the beverage market, retail outlets had two different accounts - for example, one with Kaiser and one with Coca-Cola. Parada announced that beer prices will go up between 5 % and 8 %..
