Carlsberg Bulgaria to Shut Down for the Winter

The Carlsberg Bulgaria brewery in the northeastern city of Shumen will be shut down for two months due to the low consumption of beer in winter, according to Alexander Grancharov, CEO of the company.

It is still unclear whether the workers will receive salaries for January and February or they will have to take unpaid leave, according to reports of Sega daily.

The reduced consumption of beer will result in staff cuts, with some 15-20 people out of the brewery's 170 employees to be dismissed.

The Shumen-based brewery has functioned at reduced capacity each winter but it has never closed doors.

The CEO of Carlsberg Bulgaria has refuted rumors that the shutdown is permanent, assuring that the brewery will resume operations in spring.
