Kyiv Brewery officially opened on June 7, 2004, and nowadays it is the most cutting-edge brewery in Ukraine. Over $68 million in total was invested in the construction of this plant. It served as a platform for implementing the most advanced global innovations in brewing and construction. The plant is operating on state-of-the-art brewing equipment produced in Belgium, Germany and Switzerland. The production process itself is designed to take into account the latest technologies of energy efficiency, health, safety and environment protection. The special advantage of the Kyiv plant is in its convenient, functional space planning. The annual output capacity of the Kyiv Brewery is 473 million liters of beer. More than 400 people work there.
A number of management systems have been implemented and are successfully functioning at the Kyiv plant, such as ISO 9001:2008 (Quality management systems), ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental management systems), ISO 22000:2005 (Food safety management systems, including НАССР).
Based on the results of the audit conducted in August 2013, the Kyiv plant was the first in the Eastern Europe and the fourth across Carlsberg Group to receive a certificate confirming the compliance of its food safety system with the high standards of FSSC 22000:2011.
FSSC 22000 is a certification scheme for food manufacturers, which includes the requirements of ISO 22000:2005 and ISO/TS 22002-1:2009, and it has been approved by GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative). A FSSC 22000:2011 certificate is a requirement put forth by many global retail and wholesale networks, such as Metro Cash&Carry, Auchan and others.
