Mexico Stop Making Corona Beer, Deemed Non-Essential Due to Corona Crisis


On Thursday Mexico’s Grupo Modelo revealed that it will temporarily stop brewing Corona beer and other brands that were exported to 180 countries after its business activities were declared non-essential under a government order that is aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus.

The Mexican government last week declared a health emergency and ordered the suspension of non-essential activities after the number of coronavirus cases in the country surpassed 1,000. On Thursday, it reported 1,510 cases and 50 deaths.

The brewer said in a statement that the suspension will begin on Sunday and that it was already in the process of scaling down production to a level and made plans resume once the suspension is lifted.

If the federal government would consider it appropriate to issue clarification confirming beer as an agro-industrial product, at Grupo Modelo is ready to execute a plan with more than 75% of their staff working from home and at the same time guaranteeing the supply of beer.
