Corona beer suspends production over the pandemic

Corona beer suspends production over the pandemic”

The supply of Corona beer among USA retailers is good for 70 days.

The coronavirus pandemic is even closing the taps on Corona beer - along with most other brews across Mexico. On Thursday, it reported 1,510 cases and 50 deaths.

Modelo who make Corona beer said in a statement, "We are in the process of lowering production at our plants to the bare minimum".

Agriculture and food production are among the key sectors which are still allowed to function under Mexican government orders.

The company says the Mexican government has deemed its business non-essential and, as such, it has to shut down for a while. The president of Mexico said that his government would continue to assess what factories may continue to operate in the coming days.

The closure of the breweries and suspension of production across Mexico comes after the government ordered non-essential businesses to keep their workers at home.

It's USA distributor, Constellation Brands, said sales of its beer brands grew 8.9% for the first three months of this year, with Modelo and Corona being its top sellers, CNN reported.

"We expect to have no disruption in our ability to produce product and deliver it to retail", Newlands said.

Ironically enough, Corona Beer bears the unfortunate burden of its name being associated with the coronavirus ravaging the world at the moment.

38% of American beer drinkers surveyed this week said they wouldn't buy Corona "under any circumstances" at the moment.

A representative for Grupo Modelo, whose parent company is Anheuser Busch InBev, was not immediately available to confirm whether the suspension of production would affect the supply chain for its beer. Its sales rose up to 24 percent this March compared to the same period past year.
