This week SABECO visited our offices and laboratories in Leatherhead. SABECO are the largest brewing company in Vietnam. They operate around 26 breweries, their products are produced under license in a further 6. So far, their staff have attended four ‘open’ beer taster training courses we have run, two Cara Brewing Seminars organized by our
distributor, and a major Food and Drink Exhibition which Val Simpson attended
to meet them. We ran a taster training course for 25 of their staff just before
Christmas and they are now trained to do descriptive profiling of beer.
During the day SABECO were invited to view our tasting room, yeast labs and flavour labs. They were shown the processes and accreditations that we have at Leatherhead in developing our yeast cultures, flavour standards and sensory analysis.
The day was attended by the following people from SABECO:
- Mr Tran Cong Tuoc, Technical Director
- Mrs Nguyen Thi Minh Thanh, Manager of Quality Control Committee
- Mr Luong Bach Long, Expert of Quality Control Committee
- Ms Vo Thi Thanh Ha, Expert of Technical Committee
