Lvov Brewery, one of the three production sites of Carlsberg Ukraine, has summed up the results for 2012. Over the past year, Carlsberg Ukraine transferred UAH 1 billion 229 million to the budgets of different levels, including in Lvov − over UAH 16 million of taxes and fees.
In total for the reporting period the brewery filled over 143 million litres of beer, which is 17 million litres less than in the previous year. The decrease in volumes is primarily due to the economic situation in the country, fall in the population's paying capacity, and, respectively, the decrease in demand for beer.
