Draft resolution

Taking into account many requests and passing of a draft bill concerning staged prohibition on PET-container use in its first reading, we’ll negotiate an issue about possibility for introduction of the transition period for the Russian independent brewing companies and including it in the final resolution of the Forum.

It bears reminding that according to the bill from 1st of January till 30th of June 2015 it will be allowed to sell drinks with alcohol content no more than 6% in plastic containers not above 1,5l.

In the second half of 2015 it will be allowed to sell drinks with alcohol content no more than 5% in plastic containers not above 1l. Since the start of 2016 – drinks with alcohol content no more than 4% in plastic containers of 0,5l.

You can find more detailed information about PET prohibition here.

We’d like to invite representatives of the production chain “malting barley – beer” to take part in the Forum. Despite holidays, the Press Office of the Union is ready to accept your application for participation till Monday, 16th of June, 14:00.
