McCashin brew­ery wins Moa con­tract

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - FOOD INDUSTRY -

Moa Group has done a deal with Mac’s brew­ery founder and Stoke brew­ers the McCashin fam­ily, in a move that will see it use the McCashin’s Brew­ery in Nel­son to fur­ther its ex­pan­sion.

Moa, which has been con­tract brew­ing at the McCashin’s site since late last year, has signed a long-term con­tract that will see all its high-vol­ume pro­duc­tion move to the brew­ery, while its spe­cialty brews re­main at their home brew­ery in Blen­heim.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Ge­off Ross said the part­ner­ship would al­low Moa to ful­fil higher de­mand at lower cost.

“We get the brew­ing scale we re­quire, in a timely fash­ion and without sig­nif­i­cant de­mands on cap­i­tal ex­pen­di­ture. The ma­jor ben­e­fit of this model is scale and scale drives brew­ing ef­fi­ciency,” Ross said.

He de­scribed the move as sim­i­lar to pro­duc­tion meth­ods of­ten seen among craft brew­eries over­seas where beer would be brewed at dif­fer­ent brew­eries.
