    Kenya's EABL to start production at new $150 mln brewery

    East African Breweries said on Tuesday its new 15 billion shilling ($149.25 million) brewery in western Kenya is ready to start production after a successful test run. The brewer, which is controlled by Britain's Diageo (LSE: DGE.L - news) , will kick off activity at the site with a two-year production run of its Senator Keg beer, a low-priced lager made from locally grown sorghum. Senator Keg has been one of the fastest growing brands for EABL in recent years due to huge demand from price-sensitive consumers, some of whom are switching from illegal drinks into more formal ones.

    Britain's FTSE off highs as sterling boost softens

    Britain's top share index ended off earlier highs on Friday, as the pound recovered after Donald Trump said he looked forward to finalising a post-Brexit trade deal with Britain. The U.S. President's remarks curbed gains for the FTSE to 0.1 percent. The index, which is heavy on companies with foreign currency revenues, was earlier up as much as 0.8 percent after a Trump interview that appeared to dismiss hopes of a U.S.-British trade deal, depressing the pound.

    MORNING BID EUROPE-No respite from Trump attacks for NATO

    Donald Trump's European allies will try to move on from a deeply uncomfortable start to the NATO summit yesterday and focus on operational issues such as the alliance's war in Afghanistan. NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg wants leaders to agree to fund Afghan security forces until 2024, despite public fatigue in Western countries about their involvement in the 17-year-old conflict. After Brussels, Trump heads to the UK for a three-day visit that will include talks with PM Theresa May, tea with the Queen and a major security operation to contain large public protests against his presence.

    Post-Brexit customs system 'could take up to five years', government papers acknowledge

    Key government papers acknowledge establishing post-Brexit customs systems could take up to five years, Sky News has learned. Documents circulated to businesses as part of a process of consultation over the government's post-Brexit customs model reveal a likely three to five-year timescale for putting in systems in place. In addition, multiple businesses have told senior cabinet ministers it would in fact take a decade to create a computer system that could be used by all small and medium businesses that currently operate across the UK-EU border.

    Britain's FTSE dips as trade worries dull risk appetite again

    The blue chip FTSE 100 index closed down 0.1 percent at 7,615.63 points while the pan-European STOXX 600 fell 0.8 percent. "We seem to be hanging on the coattails of everything the White House says," said Ken Odeluga, market analyst at City Index. "The international flavor of the shares on the FTSE .... means that it should be very much impacted in the same way that you would expect large U.S. corporates on the S&P 500, the Dow Jones, to be impacted," Odeluga added, pointing to the fact that the FTSE is on track for a small loss for June.

    [$$] Voice Assistants Are the New Marketing Battleground

    A few years ago, Diageo PLC created its first customized application, or “skill,” for Amazon Alexa-enabled devices, enabling people to ask the voice assistant for information about the beverage maker’s Johnnie Walker whiskey brand. The problem, according to the U.K.-based company, was that the skill wasn’t compatible with how consumers use voice-assistant devices. Diageo was pushing information about the history of its brand on users, rather than providing them with an application that would make their lives easier.
