Biofuels burning Carlsberg

The use of grain for biofuel production is pushing beer production prices up for Carlsberg Brewery
Farmers selling large amounts of their grain to biofuel producers is leading to increasing production prices for brewing giant Carlsberg, reported Berlingske Tidende Friday.
Subsidy programmes from the government and European Union to promote environmentally friendly fuels are making it more profitable for farmers to sell their crops to make biofuels rather than beer.
