Finns drinking less beer

This article was originally published in Foodnews

BEER consumption in Finland has fallen 6% compared with 2009. However, mineral water consumption saw an increase of 10%. Statistics from the Finnish Federation of Brewers and Soft Drink Manufacturers further revealed that, in 2010, 795.9 million litres of beer, cider, alcopops, mineral water and soft drinks were sold. Kathleen Retourné writes: This was a decrease of 3% (or 24.6 million litres) on the previous year. The decrease was attributed to the slump in beer consumption. Sales from Finnish breweries fell 5.7%, the equivalent of 23.9 million litres. Mineral water sales grew around 10%, with around 64.9 million litres of bottled water sold. It was the only drink category that saw a growth in sales during this period.
